Samsung is commonly known as a consumer electronics company but it doesn’t take a lot of research to find out that the company has its fingers in a lot of proverbial pies. It produces components that go into mobile devices, these components are sold to other OEMs as well as used in Samsung’s own devices. The company today announced that it has started production of 4GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM, which means we can expect it to be present in mobile devices that come out next year.
The 4GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM has been manufactured on Samsung’s 20nm process. Samsung promises an input/output data rate of up to 3200Mbps while consuming 40 percent less power than LPDDR3 mobile DRAM modules.
It doesn’t end here. These new modules will also bring support for video recording and playback in Ultra High Definition as well as continuous shooting ability for high-resolution images of more than 20 megapixels.
Samsung expects that the new chips will be ready for market deployment by early next year, leaving ample time for OEMs to integrate the new LPDDR4 mobile DRAM into their smartphones and tablets, so it wouldn’t really surprise anyone if the module shows up in future devices.
Does this mean we can expect the Galaxy S6 to come with 4GB of RAM? It could go either way, really.
