Samsung Begins Mass Production of its first new 12GB RAM for Next-gen Smartphones

Samsung kicked off this year with its new Galaxy S10 series line-up. The trio flagship devices were unveiled last month alongside Galaxy Fold, Samsung’s first foldable display smartphone and the Galaxy S10 Plus 5G variant as well. While all the new Galaxy phones have featured up to 6 or 8GB of RAM, the 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus had featured a massive 12GB of RAM. These chunks of RAM capacity phones isn’t new after all and is becoming a norm for smartphones in the premium segment. For instance, OnePlus had also launched 10GB RAM variant – the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition smartphone.

Samsung is all set to step up the game and now has begun the mass production of high-capacity mobile DRAM with 12GB capacity catered for upcoming premium smartphones. The Korean tech giant claims to be providing a whole lineup of advanced memory smartphones that includes 12GB RAM and 51GB of eUFS 3.0 storage. The company also claims the new 12GB RAM, which the company calls it 12GB mobile DRAM can maximize the upcoming premium smartphones potential, especially the phones with more than five cameras and bigger displays and the devices with AI and 5G capabilities.

This is the first 12GB LPDDR4X developed by Samsung by a 10nm process, which is claimed to provide more space for smartphone battery and is also said to deliver data transfer rate of 34.1GB/ per second. The 12GB RAM that featured on the recently launched Galaxy S10 Plus isn’t the new one; instead, it was built on a 20nm process. That said, this mass production of 12GB RAM certainly hints us to where the future of premium smartphones is headed and expect more massive amounts of storage variant phones coming up starting this year.
