Samsung Announces 6 GB RAM for Phones

Browse This Page

Samsung has proved its presence cannot be ignored in the tech world irrespective of the ruckus being kicked up around it. Following the news of the new iPhones, the company made an announcement in a press release last night about its 12 GB mobile DRAM chips. This has just opened the door for 6 GB smartphones in the near future because the 12Gb LPDDR4 enables 3 GB or 6GB of mobile DRAM in a single package by simply using two chips and four chips respectively.

Samsung says that “compared to the preceding 20nm-based 8Gb LPDDR4, the 12Gb version is more than 30% faster at 4,266Mbps, and is twice as fast as DDR4 DRAM for PCs, while consuming 20 percent less energy.” It goes on to comment that these chips won’t be confined to just phones but hopefully would be available for “ultra-slim PCs, digital appliances and automotive device,” as well. One of the advantages of having a high RAM is that it makes multi-tasking on the device incredibly smooth.

Currently, even the fanciest of Samsung phones do not go beyond 4 GB of RAM. However, a 6 GB phone sometime next year shouldn’t come as a surprise now that the official announcement about the technology has been made.

    Samsung can’t think of anything innovative right now so all they’re doing is increasing the number!

  • Muzamil Shah

    Instead of optimizing software, they are bringing in more ram! I think all the manufacturers need to focus more on the battery consumption rather than the ram management part because it is anyway sufficient for at least an year or 2!

  • Jayesh Patel

    It would be great even if it works like 2gb real one.

  • Anirudha Deshpande

    Ha ha ha ha 6 ho ya 8 hang to defenetly hoga

  • Akshay Purohit

  • Aman Ali

    They dont need to increase the amount of ram above 4gb… Gaming PC’s run on 8gb ram… Just a marketing gimmick… What they need to do is to improve ram management in their phones…

  • Bunty Banerjee
