HTC has announced Desire 510, the first Android phone to run a 64-bit processor.
HTC's Desire 510 is a pretty budget-conscious affair; aside from the 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with LTE, it features a 4.7-inch 854 x 480 screen, a five-megapixel camera, and 1GB of RAM, The Verge reported.
The primary advantage of 64-bit processing is the ability to address more than 4GB of RAM, so the Desire 510 isn't going to set any power records.
However, Android itself doesn't even support 64-bit yet, so unless this phone gets updated from 4.4 KitKat to the new Android L version, its architectural credentials will be little more than a footnote in the history of mobile computing, the report said.
