The arrival of 64-bit midrange smartphones is highly anticipated. It will be an important moment for the smartphone market.

Personally, I think 32 bits is enough for any application I'd care to run.  If you need more than a few GB of memory, IMO the application is being ridiculously wasteful.  But YMMV -- if some people think it's fun to debug 16-digit hexadecimal numbers, I'll quote Mr. Knightly: "I have nothing to say against it, but that they shall not choose pleasures for me."

IMO 64 bits is for mainframe operating systems.  For my personal use, I prefer something... well, more personal.

JMO/YMMV

Do you agree with ARM that the high end handset is 64-bit this year and the midrange stays 32-bit at least through 2015?

Ah I see:

"MediaTek today announces the MT6595, a premium mobile solution with the world's first 4G LTE octa-core smartphone SOC powered by the latest Cortex-A17™ CPUs from ARM."

4xA17 + 4xA7 in big.little arrnagement with Rel. 9, Category 4 FDD and TDD LTE with data rates up to 150Mbits/s downlink and 50Mbits/s uplink.

AND
  • Multi-standard inductive and resonant wireless charging functionality available
  • Supported by MediaTek's companion multimode wireless power receiver IC

Interesting
