The brand claims improved performance and capacity from the new DRAM upgrade. It will be based on Samsung’s latest second-gen 10nm class process. As we are at the cusp of 5G advent, the 12gigs of LPDDR5 RAM could bolster the required technical base.

Samsung envisions AI and machine learning to gain from this, besides 5G. An optimized performance could benefit the battery life of the smartphones employing these cutting edge techs.

Coming to raw spec difference, the 12GB LPDDR5 DRAM could transfer data at a rate of 5,500 megabits per second (Mb/s), which is approximately 1.3 times faster than the current LPDDR4X memory with 4266Mb/s speed. If you’re unaware, the latter is used in our smartphones these days.

Samsung brags that with its arrival you could transfer 44GB data, or around 12 full HD (3.7GB-sized) movies, in only a second, which is impressive nonetheless.

This will draw up to 30 percent less power than its predecessor in dint of a new circuit design with enhanced clocking, training and low-power feature. All this simply means a stable and smooth performance without sacrificing the battery life of your phone.
