The Galaxy Note 4 is more likely to be the first 64-bit smartphone to be made by Samsung over the Galaxy S5.

The company's CEO stated today the Samsung will definitely bring 64-bit processors to the market next year, however; it will not be in a short enough amount of time to have it launch on the Galaxy S5.

A previous report from a Korean publication known as Daum news portal stated that Samsung has entered into the final stage of development for its 64-bit processors, with the technology ready to be used for the "next smartphone-tablet." This same report says that Android will go 64-bit next year.

The Android 4.4, KitKat update could support devices with 64-bit chips.

A recent presentation that took place at Intel hinted at the company working together with Android on a 64-bit product that would run Google's OS. However, KitKat was not mentioned during the presentation.

Samsung has already confirmed that its future mobile devices will have 64-bit support. Apple's iPhone 5S will be the first official 64-bit smartphone on the market.

Intel's Bay Trail Atom chips offer 64-bit support, according to Android Authority. A future Samsung or Android product could be using these chips in the future.

ARM's next-gen of mobile chips will also come with 64-bit support.

Sundar Pichai made an appearance during the event to discuss Chrome and Android and spent most of his time talking about increasing the presence of its eco-system. He did not touch on anything related to 64-bits.

Samsung first announced its plan to make devices with 64-bit processors earlier this month.

"Not in the shortest time. But yes, our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality," said Shin Jong-kyun, Samsung's mobile business chief, adding that he followed the media coverage of Apple's new iPhone.
