6gb-smartphone-ram
With Launch of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung was the first one to bring 4GB RAM access in the Android mobile phones; with Samsung Note 5 and the current OnePlus 2 carrying the same RAM capacity.

Now, today Samsung has again taken the technology a step further with the launch of 12GB LPDDR4 (low power, double data rate 4) DRAM Chip that will offer 6GB RAM for the upcoming Next Generation Smartphones and tablets.

The latest DRAM chip version 12 comes with such technology that accelerates:
  • Advanced 20-nanometer (nm) Process Technology
  • 30% fast speed than the previous 8GB LPDDR4
  • 20% Less energy consumption
  • Increased Manufacturing productivity to 50%
The next generation mobile phones are supposed to be equipped with the new mobile DRAM chip enabling increased capacity and fastest speed with simultaneously providing essentials (for building a smarter mobile device) such as:
  • Excellent energy efficiency
  • Reliability
  • Ease of design
  • Smooth multitasking
  • Better performance with the compatible operating system
The DRAM chip also boasts of having speed twice as fast as DDR4 DRAM for desktops or laptops. The mobile memory being designed for smartphones and tablets plans to expand to ultra-slim PCs and IoT devices.

So, that’s all the new DRAM chip has to offer, but if we go back once again and see..do we really need such high amount of RAM in smartphones? Overpowering memory on a PC.
