Start64!Next year is expected to bring to the market a flurry of smartphones powered by 64-bit processors, the latest reports on the matter suggest. Apparently, chip makers such as Qualcomm, Nvidia and Broadcom will all have 64-bit mobile CPUs available in the first half of the next year, a recent article on DigiTimes reads.

It is possible that the first smartphones to pack such processors will become official at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2014, though an official confirmation on this has yet to emerge.

The smartphone landscape has changed a lot during the past several years, and vendors are looking for the launch of more and more powerful devices, this being the main reason why said 64-bit processors will appeal to them.
