I really wanted to know the CPU word length of Samsung Galaxy A10s, running Android Pie. In the first appearance it looks like it has a 64 bit processor, since, it uses the MediaTek Helios P22 chipset, but I dont think apps/programs running in user space have access to 64 bit instructions etc. . Even
__aarch64__ is undefined. The OS identifies it as ARM 7 and hence it cannot use AES instruction sets and other features. If it were the ARM Cortex A53 mentioned by MediaTek Helios P22 it should have an ARM architecture of 8.
- Is this because the Kernel is 32 bit ?
- Or is the Android permissions blocking it ?
- How can I identify my Kernel is a 32 bit or 64 bit ?
Please do correct me, if I am wrong !?
Every help will be greatly appreciated!
