Those reports did not specifically mention the phones, but this is widely believed to refer to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phablet. In addition to those 64-bit processors, these new phones are also expected to get shipped with an awesome WQHD (2560X1440 pixel resolution) displays. That report had also mentioned a 16 mega pixel camera.

Last Wednesday, Samsung had confirmed that they are working on 64-bit processors for their smart phones. Unlike most Android smart phone maker companies, Samsung makes their own chips. They also manufacturer the chips which power Apple’s iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C devices.

Stephen Woo, who is the president of Systems SI at Samsung electronics, has told CNET that their company is taking a two-step approach to develop their 64-bit chips. According to president Woo, their firm is planning on developing a 64-bit chip based on some designs from ARM. Once Samsung has mastered that technology, they will design their own chip. It is believed that it will be the latter chip that ends up in two of the Samsung’s 2014 flagships smart phones. Woo also said that they were marching on a schedule. They will offer the first 64-bit [processor] based on ARM’s own core. And after that, they will offer an even more optimized 64-bit [processor] based on their own optimizations.

Some earlier reports have also suggested that tech. giant Samsung is developing a slim line 16 mega pixel camera with a built-in optical image stabilization system. But the latest report fits in with those earlier claims.

And it is heard that Samsung and another leading display company named Japan Display are expected to begin their volume production of WQHD displays very soon.
