The Next Pixel Tablet May Include a 64-bit Version of Android 13

The shift to 64-bit was initiated by Apple with its iOS 11. However, as of recent news, Google is moving toward just supporting 64-bit builds. Google is reportedly working on a 64-bit-only version of the OS for the future Pixel Tablet, even though the change was not made with the recently launched Android 13 operating system.

Google is now testing a 64-bit only edition of Android 13 for a smartphone with the codename Tangor reveals Mishaal Rahman. For those who are unaware, the Pixel Tablet, which was announced at Google I/O 2022 earlier this year, is what the codename refers to. If it happens, the Pixel Tablet will be one of the first Android devices to stop supporting 32-bit.

Now, just in case you’re curious about the advantages you’ll enjoy. The Pixel Tablet will use less RAM if 32-bit compatibility is removed, but 32-bit applications won’t be able to run on the tablet at the same time. However, Google mandated in 2019 that all apps support 64-bit.

Making the transition to a 64-bit platform may be beneficial in many ways. Since Google hasn’t released a comment about the changeover, it is difficult to anticipate it.
