Merely a day after unveiling its new Exynos 5 Octa 5420 processor, that too has entered mass production, Samsung has announced that its 3GB LPDDR3 high performance mobile RAM has entered mass production. These memory modules are intended to be used in upcoming smartphones. Samsung says that the growth in high quality video and bandwidth hungry LTE networks warrant the need for bigger RAM modules in smartphones, which obviously makes the case for 3GB RAM modules in smartphones.
Young-Hyun Jun, sales and marketing EVP for Samsung memory says that this module will be adapted in high-end smartphones in the second half of this year, most smartphones are likely to tout this module next year. So what does this mean from a consumer’s point of view? Well Samsung is going to release its Galaxy Note 3 phablet in the next couple of months. Today’s announcement ups the odds that this device will come with at least 3GB of RAM, this possibility has already been rumored in the past. Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Note 3 at IFA conference in Berlin, which takes place this September.
