I am wondering what the planned support for Android x86_64 is, and when it will be available?

Looking at the current version, there is no file for building.

OpenCV for Android is built using Android NDK. Do you know anything about NDK version supporting compilation for Android x86_64?

Yes, I have access to a 64-bit NDK.

I thought there's was no plan to release such platform in android and there's not such device actually, why should you need that ?

In iOS , it's available only for simulator that works very differently from android ( that is, the simulator does not emulate hardware but software )

64-bit android for Baytrail devices are available, and more are coming. Also 64-bit ARM devices will be available Q4/early Q1 '15.

ARM is not x86 , they are completely different processors, you'll never need to compile x86_64 to run or debug an android app

Yes, I know that ARM is not x86. The point I was making is that 64-bit is coming to BOTH platforms, so OpenCV needs to be available for those platforms; I was specifically requesting x86_64 support. Android apps will compile to 64-bit under both Dalvik and ART automatically once those VM's have been ported, but native code (OpenCV-based shared libraries, etc.) will need to be compiled against the 64-bit NDK/OpenCV toolchain.

Strange that intel that produces x86-64 and develops opencv did not know about this.
