HTC To Put 64-Bit And Budget In One Device
Since the release of the first 64-bit smartphone, the Apple iPhone every other smartphone maker starts paying attention to the technology and replicate it. Yes there are always arguments to the concept of a 64-bit smartphone; we don’t need it, we like it, it makes the phone better, its expensive and unnecessary, and more. Despite all the argument against the technology, every other manufacturer took notes and starts developing their smartphones with the technology. Of course the only way to make sure your smartphone is a 64-bit format device you, if you are a manufacturer would need to rely on your processing chip provider. In HTC’s case they rely on Qualcomm.
Qualcomm have been testing, talking and teasing about 64-bit format processors that are to be released by the end of the year and early next year. HTC recently looks to be working on a mid-tier type device working on the technology with their latest leak device, the A11. Reportedly from the Desire line it packs a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 410, plain and average at best. The HTC A11 will be fitted with a very unimpressive 5 Megapixel camera at the back and a 0.3MP front shooter. The 4.7-inches display packs only 854 x 480 pixels. Very mid-tier. No other details have been released except that it will ship out with Android’s 4.4 KitKat overlayed with Sense 6. Don’t put your hopes up though, this device is supposed to be a Sprint model in the U.S. and there are still no word on release. There could be an international version in the works alongside this device though.
