In a Google+ post, the company said application designers will have the capacity to get a bigger amount of addressable memory space with 64-bit support, alongside a greater number of registers and new guideline sets. While applications fabricated utilizing Java will naturally access to every one of those cool features, Google says applications made utilizing the Android NDK will take some extra optimization to accomplish full 64-bit support.

Obviously, the dominant part of Android devices utilization ARM-based processors yet there’s no statement on when a 64-bit emulator will be released for those sorts of CPUs.
