Samsung has started mass production on 12Gb LPDDR5 mobile DRAM chips, the company has announced.
In a post on its newsroom site earlier today, Samsung outlined what the chips would offer and when we could expect to see them in smartphones.
Samsung’s 12Gb (Gigabit) LPDDR5 DRAM — the first of its kind for the industry — will be combined in groups of eight to produce 12GB (Gigabyte) LPDDR5 DRAM packages later this month.
Samsung also says these 12GB modules are set to be used in high-end phones; given the timelines and intent, it seems likely one such DRAM package could power the upcoming Galaxy Note 10.
We have already seen 12GB RAM on Android phones like OnePlus 7 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, and Xiaomi Black Shark 2 but this was typically of the previous LPDDR4X variety.
LPDDR5 is set to be superior in several ways.
