The war of the smartphones is soon approaching a new level after Samsung is preparing to launch new devices that will be powered by 4GB RAM. Most of the company’s flagship phones could be expected to have the larger RAM in 2015.
The South Korean electronics leader has already begun to the mass production of 8 Gb low power mobile DRAMS with 2x data rate4 or LPDDR4. The new RAMs will use the 20nm process technology which will make room for the 4GB mobile RAM. Samsung spokespersons have said that the new chip will let a phone carry 4GB packages.
An official blog post from Samsung says that the new chips boast of a high input/output data rate of up to 3,200 Mbps. This data rate is twice as fast as a typical DDR3RAM that is used in PCs. The new RAM can easily support Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4k video recording as well as 4k video playback. It will also offer a continuous shooting mode of high resolution pictures with a camera of more than 20 megapixels.
The 20 nanometers 8 gigabits LPDDR4 RAM will provide double the performance and operational density in comparison to the 4 gigabits LPDDR3 RAM, although it was also based on a 20 nanometer process technology.
The extended memory will also allow the future 64-bit chips to handle RAM allocation with greater ease.
The new RAM is also lower in power consumption. It operates on a voltage of 1.1V, which is lower than what the LPDDR3 RAM works on.
