Samsung Starts Production of First 12GB LPDDR5 Mobile DRAM

Samsung Electronics announced that it had started the mass production of 12GB LPDDR5 mobile DRAM. It is the company’s futuristic approach to support the upcoming 5G enabled and AI-supported flagship smartphones. The Galaxy Note 10, Note 10 Pro & Galaxy S11 might be those lucky smartphones. It is interesting to know that the company started mass production of this memory only after six months of its predecessor version 12GB LPDDR4X.

The announcement of this latest version of memory enhances the premium memory lineup of the company. Samsung says mass production of 12GB LPDDR5, which based on Samsung’s second-generation 10nm class.

We can expect it on board with upcoming Galaxy Note 10 and future flagship smartphones. However, a 12GB RAM variant may launch with flagships that come with more internal storage capacity.

Samsung always looks forward to producing next-generation mobile memory, which aims to upgrade performance and capacity. The company is planning to start mass production of 12GB LPDDR5 packages which combines 8 products of 12GB chips.

Galaxy S11 Probably Get 12GB RAM

Upcoming smartphones demand the upgraded technology with higher performance capability as well as enhanced RAM capacity, and the latest technology aimed at ensuring the optimum performance of the forthcoming flagship smartphones.

It is exploiting full benefits of 5G and AI capabilities like ultra HD video recording and machine learning. At the data speed of 5500MB/s 12GB LPDDR5 is approximately 1.3 times faster than LPDDR4X, which is 4266MB/s.

This latest chipset uses 30 percent less power compared to its predecessor and achieved with new circuit design. It has enhanced clocking, training, and low power feature. With this 12GB LPDDR5 DRAM technology, Samsung gets a better edge in this competitive market. Also, the company is planning to produce 16GB LPDDR5 by next year to strengthen its position.

When made into a 12GB package the latest chip can transfer 44GB of data or about 12 full HD movies in a second. Samsung decided to produce 12GB RAM variants ahead of the launch of its flagship Galaxy Note 10, and there is a strong possibility that the device will equip with the latest chipset.
