Samsung’s mobile devices have to date packed 6GB of RAM at most. This is versus some of Samsung’s competition which started to offer up 8GB of RAM. Of course whether or not so much RAM is necessary is up for debate, but from a marketing perspective, 8GB of RAM does sound more impressive (on paper).


However one of the rumors of the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 is that Samsung could be equipping it with 8GB of RAM, a rumor which Samsung seems to have semi-confirmed. The company has recently unveiled a new “ultra-thin” 8GB RAM module which they claim makes it perfect for next-gen flagship mobile devices.

According to Samsung, they claim to have “created an 8GB LPDDR4X mobile DRAM package by combining four of the 10nm-class 16Gb LPDDR4X DRAM chips (16Gb=2GB). This four-channel package can realize a data rate of 34.1GB per second and its thickness has been reduced by more than 20 percent from the 1st-gen package, enabling OEMs to design slimmer yet more effective mobile devices.”

The company does not come right out and state that it will find its way to the Note 9 or 2019’s Galaxy S10, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did, but until we get the official word maybe don’t get your hopes up just yet.
