Even if you don’t like Samsung’s phones, you should still appreciate the company as a whole. Why? Because as even Apple will admit, it’s a great components supplier and its displays, processors and other hardware are first-rate. Now PhoneArena brings us word that Samsung has just announced it has started mass production of its 4GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM modules, the first smartphone modules ever to offer 4GB of RAM.
It’s official, dear readers – we’re entering the age of mobile devices that have as much random access memory as the average laptop nowadays! Samsung just announced it has begun mass production of the industry’s first 4 Gigabyte LPDDR4 mobile DRAM modules for smartphones and tablets. They are built on the company’s 20nm process technology and offer an input/output data rate of up to 3200Mbps (megabits per second), along with UHD video recording and playback, continuous shooting of high-res images over 20MP resolution, and up to 40% lower power consumption compared to LPDDR3 units. The power savings are eligible for all LPDDR4 modules, so 2GB and 3GB RAM devices are getting the goods too.
