Recently “leaked” information about the Google Nexus 8 indicates that the speculated Android “Lollipop 4.5” or Android “Lollipop 5.0” will support 64-bit architecture.
The Google I/O 2014 is scheduled for June 25 and 26, and Google is expected to announce its latest Android OS update.
So far, there is little to no news from Google about what to expect from their upcoming Android update, which has been speculated to be called Android Lollipop 4.5 or Android Lollipop 5.0.
However, some information has been “leaked” lately about the upcoming “Nexus 8” tablet, and it gives an inkling about the new Android OS.
It has been speculated that the “Nexus 8” will use either a Qualcomm or Nvidia Tegra 64-bit processor. This means that the Android Lollipop 4.5 or Android Lollipop 5.0 should support a 64-bit architecture.
Android Origin has speculated that given the ever-increasing RAM capacity of Android phones, and that Apple already has a chipset (A7) with 64-bit architecture, it is makes “a lot of sense” that Google is moving towards 64-bit architecture for its mobile devices too.
Given the lack of official confirmation from Google, all discussion is strictly speculative at this stage.
