HTC announced the all new Desire 510 which is the first 64 bit capable Android powered smartphone to be released until today. Previously, Apple has been the only OEM to launch a smartphone with a 64 bit processor. HTC Desire 510 runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 which is 64-bit ready.

Interestingly, the device wouldn’t be taking advantage of the 64 bit capability since it runs on Android KitKat which is not 64-bit ready. Also, given the mediocre specs of this budget phone there is no real advantage of housing a 64-bit architecture.

It has be noted that Android L would be bringing the 64-bit support to the Android platform which was announced during Google IO 2014, also a minimum of 4GB RAM is required to look at the advantages of a 64-bit processor.

The Desire 510 includes a 4.7-inch 854×480 screen, running on snapdragon 410 Quad core processor clocked at 1.2Ghz coupled with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage plus a MicroSD card slot, and a VGA front-facing cam and is supported by a removable 2100mAh battery. The Phone would have to wait for the Android L update to take advantage of the 64 bit architecture.
