Your next smartphone might feature Samsung’s 12GB RAM chip

Samsung unveils the highest-capacity smartphone DRAM yet

Thanks to the 12GB mobile DRAM, smartphone makers can maximize the potential of devices that feature more than five cameras and ever-increasing display sizes as well as artificial intelligence and 5G capabilities. After launching the production of 512GB eUFS 3.0 memory chips, the company is now kick-starting the production of 12GB DRAM modules for usage in smartphones.

Sammy reckons the new kit hits a sweet spot for high-end smartphones - the iPhone X uses LPDDR4 DRAM for example - and we note it's a larger amount of memory than that found in some laptop computers. The latter, in particular, will allow users to run three apps at once and seamlessly transition between form factors, and it can surely benefit from 12GB RAM support fluidity and open up multiple apps in succession.

Lakers' LeBron James hosts personal dunk contest in dominant performance against Bulls
The 76ers held off the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-99, with Ben Simmons scoring 26 points and Joel Embiid making 19 rebounds. New York, which got 21 points from Emmanuel Mudiay, scored fewer than 100 points for the fourth straight game.

Designed primarily, Samsung explains, for use in future premium smartphone designs, the Samsung LPDDR4X 12GB package combines six individual 1y-nm - the name given by Samsung to its 10nm-class but-not-actually-10nm process node - 16Gb dies in a single 1.1mm-thick package offering a claimed peak throughput of 34.1GB/s. From its cutting-edge memory line in Pyeongtaek, Korea, Samsung plans to more than triple the supply of its 1y-nm-based 8GB and 12GB mobile DRAM during the second half of 2019 to meet the anticipated high demand. Samsung ranks high on the next-gen wave with its own Galaxy S10 devices, alongside Huawei, Xiaomi and Co., so it's little wonder that the South Korean manufacturer now provides the hardware needed for such powerful features. It's not likely to be cheap, so you'll only see the chips in the most expensive versions of premium smartphones.
