“The 1z-based 16Gb LPDDR5 elevates the industry to a new threshold, overcoming a major developmental hurdle in DRAM scaling at advanced nodes,” said Jung-bae Lee, executive vice president of DRAM Product & Technology at Samsung Electronics.
The new 16Gb RAM is “the highest speed and largest capacity available in mobile DRAM,” according to the company. At present, the most RAM seen in high end Android phones like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra or OnePlus 8 Pro normally tops out at 12GB.
While the announcement and its tech speak is hard to digest, it basically implies that the RAM in your phone could soon be even more capable. Samsung supplies memory to other smartphone manufacturers, so you’ll find it soon in more than just Galaxy smartphones.
