Samsung wants to stay on its A game to beat Apple
is making an aggressive push into China, and will pump up the competition with powerful new 64-bit Galaxy products in order to keep Apple at bay.
Shin Jong-kyun, Samsung’s mobile business chief, confirmed that Samsung wants to expand its business in the Chinese smartphone market during a meeting in Seocho-dong, southern Seoul.
“Samsung understands that Apple intends to boost its mobile business in China, as well as in Japan, meaning that we should try harder in these countries,” said shin.
Apple will sell its latest iPhones through China Unicom and China Telecom while also talking with China Mobile, which has a customer base over twice the size of the U.S. population. In fact, Chinese regulators gave the final required license for the iPhone to work on China Mobile Ltd's mobile network this week.
Samsung plans to pursue the market with competitive products in hopes of swaying users from buying Apple's iPhones. For instance, Shin said the next set of Samsung Galaxy smartphones would feature 64-bit processors for more power and speed.
“Not in the shortest time. But yes, our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality,” said Shin.
In addition, Samsung will hold a launch event for its latest
5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3 "phablet"
Apple, on the other hand, just recently announced its
, which also features a 64-bit processor (the ARM-based A7). This will offer the market a high-end smartphone with enough power to run complex games and applications.
As of the end of the second quarter, Samsung was the top smartphone seller in China with 19.4 percent of the market while Apple’s share was just 4.3 percent.

"To handle all the new multimedia capabilities, with manipulating videos, photos, etc."
Still not convinced enough (or any) people are doing that on a mobile phone to the extent that a 32 bit architecture is a real limitation. Likewise with the memory addressing. What phone has 4+ gigs of ram? None. They only recently commonly started including 2.
I'm not saying it's not a good move for the future, but to suggest people will see actual advantages today is stretching it.
