We always knew that technology was going to be moving along in leaps and bounds but even this might be a little faster than we were expecting. Samsung have announced that they are putting 12 gigabit LPDDR4 RAM chips for smartphones into mass production. The 12Gb chips have the same footprint as their existing RAM chips.

To put that into English, Samsung are about to give smartphones 6GB RAM capacities, as opposed to the current 4GB maximums that you’ll find in the company’s smartphones.

On top of that, they’re making their new RAM chips faster and more energy efficient, both of which are important considerations when putting anything into a phone.

And Samsung have bigger plans. Joo Sun Choi, executive vice president of Memory Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics, said “[W]e intend to closely collaborate with our global customers to move beyond premium smartphones and tablets in creating new digital markets that embrace the full potential of cutting-edge technologies like next-generation mobile DRAM.”
