Ahead of its launch, the South-Korean giant has announced the mass production of the industry’s first 12GB LPDDR5 mobile DRAM. According to various rumours, it is well optimised for enabling 5G and other AI features in the upcoming phones.

If the rumours turn out to be true, the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 will come equipped with this new memory chip. It’s worth mentioning that, Samsung announced the mass production of first 8GB LPDDR5 DRAM for smartphones exactly one year ago.

Talking about the specifications, the 12GB LPDDR5 mobile DRAM is built on the latest second-generation 10nm process with a data rate of 5,500 MB/s, which is 1.3 times faster than its predecessor.
