First Android phones with 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor appear online

We could soon be graced by the first Android smartphones carrying 64-bit chips. Two phones powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor have been spotted in two different benchmark listings over the last few days.

One of the two phones is from Samsung, SM-G510F, which was sighted on GFXBench website. The website has revealed the key details about the smartphone including the presence of 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 processor, Adreno 306 GPU and Android 4.4.2. The phone will also come with 4.8-inch qHD display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, NFC and the usual connectivity options.

The other smartphone is from Huawei, G621, which was spotted by folks at AnTuTu in their benchmark logs. According to AnTuTu, the smartphone runs on Android 4.4 and is powered by 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and Adreno 306 GPU, same as Samsung SM-G510F. Among other specifications, the phone packs 5-inch HD display, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

As you can see, both smartphones are mid-range devices, which isn’t surprising given Snapdragon 410 was meant for this price-segment. We expect to see the first high-end 64-bit Android phones by early-next year.
