On a computer, it's pretty easy to find out if the system is 32 or 64 bit.

I have a Nokia G21 and a Huawei P10 in front of me, and both tell me the various things: the model designation of the phone, the CPU, the Android version; but nothing tells me explicitly the architecture, i.e., whether it's a 32 or 64 bit device.

Microsoft Windows, on the other hand, tells me in no uncertain terms at Settings -> System -> Info which one it is. Linux is also pretty forthcoming with this information.

Is there any means from the on-board tools of Android to find this out? I.e., not asking the internet, not connecting to a PC and not installing any additional apps.

    If you enable Developer options (usually tapping the build version in about phone enables it) on my device the first entry is about how much RAM is installed/available. If this entry shows more than 4GB then it has to be a 64 bit device.

  • Well, that's indirect and covers only a subset of cases, i.e., phones with more than 4 GB of RAM. If my phone reports 4 GB or less, then I am non the wiser.

    On a terminal emulater app or ADB shell type uname -m. Feb 24, 2023 at 11:26
  • @IrfanLatif there is a catch. OP mentioned the restraint: "not asking the internet, not connecting to a PC and not installing any additional apps". :)

  • @Firelord noted. But many ROMs have a terminal emulater app built-in, usually disabled in developer options. It's a basic utility for any power user, not something additional :) Feb 24, 2023 at 11:30
