32 bit and 64 bit Android devices list: How to find your device’s architecture?

With Pokemon Go dropping support for 32-bit Android devices in August 2020, you may be wondering whether yours come into the category of modern, 64-bit architecture or the now-outdated 32-bit tech. Well, we are here to help you out.

If you bought a device in the last few years, chances are more than not that it’s a 64-bit one. However, check out the lists below for 32-bit Android devices and 64-bit Android devices to find out where does your phone and tablet land.

What you should know before we get started?

This list has been classified based on the CPUs powering each of these devices. While some chipsets might be 64bit, your manufacturer might have gone with a 32bit OS to provide better support and optimization. This is due to hardware limitations posed by existing hardware despite the introduction of 64bit architecture.

While device SOCs were able to support 64bit, other components like RAM and storage simply were unable to benefit from it which instead created a bottleneck for your CPU performance. Hence, to provide users with an optimal and stable experience, manufacturers released devices with a 32bit Android OS instead.

Why my Android device is 32-bit when the chipset is 64-bit?

When the OS was making the transition to 64bit SOCs, Google made it mandatory for developers to include 64bit libraries and apps on the Play Store. While this was a much-needed push, hardware at the time, especially RAM was not really compatible with this upgrade. Most RAMs being used in smartphones at the time were underperforming units of low memory that could not take advantage of the 64bit architecture. This would result in a less stable system that would often encounter memory leaks.

Hence, manufacturers decided to go with 32bit Android despite using 64bit compatible SOCs. A good example of this would be the Moto G5 series. Although sporting an SD 430 in the basic model and SD 630 in the plus model, the G5 was inherently running a 32bit Android OS based on Lollipop out of the box instead of a 64bit one due to its RAM limitations.

How to find if your Android phone is 32-bit or 64-bit?

Well, you can use an Android app for this, too! Here’s how:

Download the AIDA64 app to discover if your Android OS is 32-bit or 64-bit on your smartphone. Once downloaded, open the app and tap ‘CPU‘.

Now, check the ‘Instruction set’ field. This will reveal whether your Android device is a 32-bit one or 64-bit.

As this is based on the version of Android and not what the chipset hardware is capable of, this is what matters for the apps and games deciding the device’s compatibility.


We hope this list helped you learn everything you needed to know about 32-bit and 64-bit smartphones released in the last few years. If you have any questions or have any queries feel free to reach out to us using the comments section below.
