Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 9 on August 9 may come with an 8GB LPDDR4X mobile DRAM as the company starts mass producing it. The Samsung Newsroom post from last week announced the mass production of the company’s second generation 10-nanometer-class (1y-nm), LPDDR4X (Low Power Double Data Rate 4X) DRAM with improved efficiency, and low battery drainage meant for premium smartphones.
With this LPDDR4X advancement, Samsung is looking to expand high-capacity 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB LPDDR4X RAM for the upcoming smartphones. The South Korean giant has created an 8GB LPDDR4X mobile DRAM package by combining four of the 10nm-class 16Gb LPDDR4X DRAM chips, which can achieve data rates of 34.1GB per second, and has 20 percent thickness reduced from the first-gen package.
“The advent of 10nm-class mobile DRAM will enable significantly enhanced solutions for next-generation, flagship mobile devices that should first hit the market late this year or the first part of 2019.” said Sewon Chun, SVP of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to grow our premium DRAM lineup to lead the ‘high-performance, high capacity, and low power’ memory segment to meet the market demand and strengthen our business competitiveness.”
As it has been widely anticipated, that Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will pack an 8GB of RAM, this anouncement from Samsung suggests that the flagship smartphone will pack the latest four-channel 8GB LPDDR4X for even better experience. For the camera, Samsung has already teased that it could record ultra slo-motion video with 0.4 seconds at 90fps.
