Samsung Galaxy S10 Rumored to Use New 8GB LPDDR5 RAM Chip
If you were not paying attention, Samsung Electronics just announced its latest 8GB LPDDR5 RAM Chip earlier this week. Why is that important? Well, this baby is world’s first LPDDR5 RAM Chip, and since we’re talking about an 8 gigs module, it has been wildly speculated that Samsung’s next high-end RAM module will be implemented in the company’s next flagship, the Galaxy S10 obviously.
And that has been reported previously by various leakers from within the industry, i.e. the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 family was rumored to feature LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 mass storage. And now, Samsung unveiled world’s fastest memory chips, while announcing that in the second half of the year, they’ll focus on mass producing this stuff. It’s worth mentioning that the LPDDR5 RAM will offer a fifty percent boost in computational speed, together with thirty percent energy efficiency improvement. That’s pretty cool by any metrics, not to mention having a droid with 8 GB of RAM.
The operating frequency of the new RAM chip is in the ballpark of 6,400Mbps at a 1.1 operating voltage, compared to the previous generation’s 3,200 MBPS. The new Samsung flagships, the Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus respectively, are expected to debut with a 3D camera, which is pretty similar to Apple’s implementation in their iPhone X, along with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The two upcoming Android running flagships are to be unveiled next year, in early 2019 at the MWC in Barcelona, Spain. The next-gen Samsung smartphones are also rumored to arrive featuring the latest 5G modems. Getting back to our new RAM modules, the LPDDR5 chips will be mass-produced at Samsung’s newly built plant in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, on the new 10nm technology. There are also rumors about a low-powerchip, which delivers speeds of up to 5,500Mbps at 1.05V.
