Samsung starts producing 12GB LPDDR5 DRAM for future smartphones

Just 5 months after announcing 12GB LPDDR4X, Samsung has announced today that it has started the mass production for the 12GB LPDDR5 mobile DRAM for future smartphones.

Super fast DRAM for mobile devices

Samsung stated that the new 12GB LPDDR5 DRAM has been optimized for enabling 5G and AI features for future smartphones. LPDDR5 DRAM is the latest DRAM standard that is expected to be available first in flagship phones.

The new RAM is based on Samsung's second-generation 10nm class process with data rate of 5,550 Mbps or 1.3x faster than the 4266 Mbps of LPDDR4X.

Samsung highlighted that it can transfer 44GB of data or about 12 FHD (3.7GB-sized) movies in just a second. It also uses up to 30 percent less power than its predecessor without compromising on performance.

How? It uses a new circuit design with enhanced clocking, training, and low-power feature to ensure stable performance even when operating at fast speeds.

Samsung also said that it is considering to transfer its 12GB LPDDR5 production to its Pyeongtaek (Korea) campus starting next year in order to manage production capacity with more flexibility.

Samsung also said that it expects to develop a 16GB LPDDR5 DRAM next year.

There are speculations that we could see this new tech with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note10 first.
