Pokemon Go will soon stop supporting older smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy S4

Employees at Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, revealed today that they will soon stop supporting some of their old devices. In addition to the samsung Galaxy S4 / S5 / Note 3 / J3, Sony Xperia Z2 / Z3, the first-generation Moto G and other smart machines, many more devices will also be limited in functionality. The main reason is that Pokemon Go is moving to a full 64-bit version, while many of the Android devices released before 2015 are 32-bit versions.

After the limit, the players of these old devices will have no chance of continuing to experience Pokemon Go. To check whether your Android device is a 32-bit or 64-bit version, you can check with tool software such as Device Info.

Once installed, you can view the CPU type in the App to determine whether it is displaying a 32-bit or 64-bit device. Of course, most of the equipment purchased in the past five years has been a 64-bit platform.
