Samsung Galaxy S5 rumored to arrive with 4 GB of RAM, made possible by the 64-bit Exynos
South Korean IT publication once again reiterates that Samsung's 64-bit Exynos processor is in final stages of preparation before it enters the production line. This time a new nugget of info is added, though, namely that the new Exynos might be known as the 6-series, to differentiate from the Exynos 5 Octa chipset we have now that is a 5-series representative, and at the same time hint at the 64-bit nature of the upcoming mobile silicon.

There is one other claim in the article, and it's a pretty significant one - the 64-bit architecture will allow addressing much larger RAM quantities, and that's exactly what Samsung is planning to take advantage of. The source mentions that not only is the next edition Galaxy S5 going to be blessed with the 64-bit Exynos in question, but it will also sport 4 GB of RAM, marking a new record for a smartphone. This will undoubtedly set it apart from the competition for the foreseeable future, if it pans out, be it just for bragging rights. 

We are just curious whether Samsung will continue with the tradition to launch its flagship with different processors, depending on the market, as the gap from an eventual Exynos 6-series and 4 GB of RAM in the Galaxy S5 to any other chipset configuration for the handset seems pretty wide for potential customers to stomach.
