Mobile phones keep evolving, and from mediocre 1MB chips, we now have devices running hefty 4GB RAM chips, quite a lot of them actually, and it seems Samsung is getting tired of the routine flagships with 4GB RAM and thus set out to start production of a next phase of hefty Random Access Memory for devices – 6GB of RAM!
There’s no doubting we were expecting a 6GB RAM device sometime but who would have thought we would be seeing it sometime soon? Thanks to South Korean tech giant Samsung, the next phase of evolution of mobile DRAM is in sight, as the company is currently mass producing the industry’s first 6GB mobile DRAM chips which is based on the company’s 20-nanometer technology.
Samsung Electronics announced that it is mass producing the industry’s first 12-gigabit (Gb) LPDDR4 (low power, double data rate 4) mobile DRAM, based on its advanced 20-nanometer (nm) process technology.
The newest LPDDR4 is expected to significantly accelerate the adoption of high capacity mobile DRAM worldwide. The 12Gb LPDDR4 brings the largest capacity and highest speed available for a DRAM chip, while offering excellent energy efficiency, reliability and ease of design – all essential to developing next-generation mobile devices.
