ZTE Apollo could be the first 64-bit Android handset

ZTE Apollo

All the renowned mobile chip makers like Intel and Qualcomm are now launching their new range of 64-bit processors. This in turn means that we might soon get to see devices running these processors, with Google bringing support for these processors natively in the coming days. A Chinese media report now claims that the ZTE Apollo could be the first smartphone to feature such a processor.

The report claims that this handset will be based on the Snapdragon 808 or the 810 chipsets that were announced yesterday, but that seems unlikely given that these chips won’t arrive in the markets until 2015. Other options for 64-bit chips include the Snapdragon 410, 610 as well as the 615, so it could be either of these chips.

As this is merely a rumor for now, we expect you to take this report with a grain of salt. ZTE is yet to confirm or deny the existence of this particular handset, but we hope to learn more in the coming months.
