HTC A11 is the code name for a 64-bit Android model coming to Sprint?
A series of tweets on Sunday, revealed an HTC model code named the A11. This is going to be a phone in the HTC Desire line, featuring a 4.7 inch screen with resolution of 480 x 854. Under the hood is a 64-bit SoC from Qualcomm. The Snapdragon 410 (MSM8916) features a quad-core 1.4GHz Cortex-A53 CPU with an Adreno 306 GPU.

Other specs include a flash-less 5MP rear-facing camera, and a .3MP front-facing snapper. Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed, with Sense 6.0 on top. The dual front-facing BoomSound speakers are not on board this model, which is being produced by ODM Compal.

While there is no timeframe for its appearance, the HTC A11 is expected to be coming to Sprint. We have some pictures allegedly of the device, which you can see for yourself in the slideshow below.

"Someone tell me again.. What is the advantage of having a 64 bit device?... What advantages is it going to bring me?" Why don't you go to the cubicle down the aisle and ask Jake Lee? He would love to talk about 64-bit with you.

Please do share how you came to the conclusive figure of three-four years. Because as far as I'm concerned, you're literally throwing "facts" and numbers out there like there's no tomorrow. You THINK you know what you're talking about but in reality you don't. Now would you kindly get off that high horse of yours?

There are lots of reasons 64bit is useful, even if you only have 1 gb of ram. Calculations for one, WiFi security, secure websites, passwords, encryption, ... Basically there is lots of stuff around a OS that can take advantage of 64 bit computing. Not to mention Android apps that use long, double, and more don't have to change a thing. No need to recompile or rework the apps in order to take advantage of 64 bit computing on Android. Unlike iOS and WP their apps would need to be recompiled and reworked in order to take advantage of the capabilities.

That eery moment after a herd being culled, to see who's left standing... I didn't think it derailed completely.

The latter part of the thread where a few of us were talking about various users on PA who seem to be employees of "reputation management" companies probably caused quite a few clicks of the "Report" button.
