Samsung is the world’s leader in advanced memory technology, and today announced that it has begun mass production of the highest-capacity mobile DRAM, optimized for tomorrow’s superior smartphones. It is the industry’s first 12-gigabyte (GB) low-power double data rate 4X (LPDDR4X) package.
Smartphone users can take full advantage of all the features in next-generation smartphones with the help of this new mobile DRAM. It has a higher capacity than most ultra-thin notebooks. Sewon Chun, who is the executive vice president of Memory Marketing at Samsung Electronics said:
“With mass production of the new LPDDR4X, Samsung is now providing a comprehensive lineup of advanced memory to power the new era of smartphones, from 12GB mobile DRAM to 512GB eUFS 3.0 storage.“Moreover, with the LPDDR4X, we’re strengthening our position as the premium mobile memory maker best positioned to accommodate rapidly growing demand from global smartphone manufacturers.”
The potential of devices can be increased by smartphone users with the help of this device, it features more than five cameras and ever-increasing display sizes as well as artificial intelligence and 5G capabilities. The 12GB DRAM allows easier going multitasking and faster searches. The 1.1-millimeter thickness of this device goes for even well-groomed smartphone designs.
By combining six 16-gigabit (Gb) LPDDR4X chips based on the second-generation 10nm-class (1y-nm) process into a single package, the amazing capacity of 12 GB is achieved. The new 12GB mobile memory delivers a data transfer rate of 34.1GB per second by using the company’s 1y-nm technology. This boost in DRAM capacity results in minimizing the increase in power consumption. It provides more space for the smartphone battery.
Samsung continues to drive capacity breakthroughs in the mobile DRAM market by introducing 1GB mobile DRAM in 2011,6GB (in 2015) and 8GB (2016) and now to today’s first 12GB LPDDR4X. The supply of its 1y-nm-based 8GB and 12GB mobile DRAM is going to be triple by Samsung company to fulfill the high demand during the second half of 2019.
Through these transformative ideas and technologies, Samsung is surely shaping our future and inspiring the world.
