Samsung wants to stay on its A game to beat Apple

Samsung sees that 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" in China.

Apple, on the other hand, just recently announced its iPhone 5S, 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.

Dude, I asked you to provide research to back up this statement:

"No, idiot. A 32-bit OS can run on a 64-bit CPU. It won't be able to take full advantage of the hardware's performance, but there won't be any compatibility issues...."

Please explain how reposting these bits of hardware discussions on one or two specific architectures justify your generalization that "A 32-bit OS can run on a 64-bit CPU" . One or two specific cases does not back up that claim as you are implying with your post that ANY 64-bit processor can run any 32-bit OS.

Specific discussions on a couple micro architectures does not back up this assertion. So I am still calling bullshit on it.

Try again. Better yet, show be evidence that an Intel Itanium can run 32-bit Windows 7.

Note: I don't give a rat's ass about the OP's user name or posting history. You have bashed this person with a stupid generalization that I would love to see you back up.

Maybe they guy honestly does not know and is simply asking the question. I personally don't know, but that doesn't make him an idiot or you less of one by calling him one.

There is no such thing as stupid questions, only stupid answers.
