Android OS architecture/Soccer Star APK Question

I've been thinking about it for two days now, and I've decided to just pose the question.

Backstory: My best bro's birthday is this weekend; he has children and so cannot enjoy gaming as much as he used to. He like teamfight strategies and Runeterra legends.

Now comes the question/issue: the first game, Teamfight Tactics, can only be played on a 64bit operating system. So I was considering purchasing a Samsung Tab A 10.1, but after reading reviews, I discovered that it was "64-bit ARMv8-A." (32 bit mode). Because I don't own any tablets with this chipset/bit OS. I am unable to conduct the exam.
Could someone please clarify the difference between "32-bit mode on a 64-bit OS" and just a 64-bit Android OS?

Also, because it says 32 bit mode, does that mean it has the libraries to run 64 bit programmes, implying that the mode flips automatically?

Sorry if this is unclear; because I don't fully grasp the architecture, it's tough for me to ask the question.

Thank you ahead of time.

Welcome to the forum @necaisjackie!

We're more than happy to help with whatever we can, so no worries asking. It's kind of embarrassing since I make my living at tech, but I'm I'm not 100% sure. I can tell you what 32-bit mode is and does: Most apps are still written for 32bit architecture, so the OS adapts to that allowing the app to see a memory layout it expects. Also, some CPUs (particularly for mobile) are able to step down to 32bit to save power. What I don't know is if the particular OS you speak of is ONLY 32bit. I'd have to do some homework on that before telling you anything for certain.

There are some folks here much better versed in mobile than I am. One that comes to mind is @malik4ever. I believe @danno knows his way around them too. Maybe they can chime in and give you a better answer.

I would check that the device is 64 bit compatible (accessible to apps) and not locked into 32 bit, If locked it won't run anything 64 bit related.

Pretty much all apps run on both 32 and 64 bit the main reason mobiles and tablets are pushing into 64bit (in my opinion) is due to them having more then 4gb ram on these devices as 32bit cant have more then 4gb.

I would suggest to go for a 64bit device.

Openbor only works on android in 32bit mode for now.
