Easily Find Processor Architecture on Android Device All CPU Information androidsage

Almost all new flagship Android devices come with a 64-bit processor architecture and a lot of mid-range Android devices come with 32-bit architecture. Moreover, many times we come to a point where we need to find the Android device is an arm, arm64 or x86 device. For instance, while installing the Xposed framework. We need to determine the device architecture before flashing the correct Xposed Framework package. Hence, here is a simple guide using which you can easily find processor architecture on Android device along with all the CPU and device information.

There are some Android apps that may determine or display your processor’s architecture. However, they lack essential CPU information like the CPU board information, SDK version that is running, and other such trivial and non-trivial information about the device. However, you can get all the CPU information using a simple ADB shell query. All you need to do is connect your device with USB debugging enabled and issue ADB command in the terminal or command prompt.

Go through the requirements below and follow the instructions below.


1. Enable USB Debugging on your device. To do so, go to Settings>About Phone> Tap on the Build Number several times until you get a new Developer Options in theSettings. Open Developer Options and enable USB Debugging from there. Trust the connection by allowing it when you connect it to your PC for the first time.
