Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) recently announced to the public that they’ve already started the mass production of 3GB DDR3 for upcoming smartphones which will likely include the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3. RAM is crucial and more vital than the processor as it enables many apps to run in the background. Since the phones that came out this year feature 2GB, it only makes sense that next year’s model would evolve to 3GB.
Samsung’s current 3GB LPDDR3 utilizes six 20 nm chips, which are considered the smallest in the industry.
Likely Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature 3GB memory
Although we’re not too sure if Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) will manage to pack their 3GB memory into the Galaxy Note 3, it’s highly unlikely the company will have time since it’s set to release next month. However, it is likely the Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature this processor along with a better CPU and GPU.
Android Geeks adds, “The new memory is very slim and power-efficient, allowing makers to make even thinner devices. It’s also LTE-A compatible, so there shouldn’t be any problem with it. The company has also announced that by year-end there should be smartphones powered by this memory chip. This could lead us to believe that they might delay Galaxy Note 3’s release date and ship it with the new memory. Though nothing is certain at the moment and we are still trying to find out more information.”
Galaxy S5 expected to be released during May 2014
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) is expected to release the Galaxy S5 during May 2014. Thanks to the evolving technology of smartphones, Samsung will need to up the Galaxy S5 if they want to keep up with the evolution of technology. Next year is predicted to be a big year for smartphones. Sony, HTC, Motorola, and LG are all predicted to release new high-end smartphone with 3GB of RAM.
It’s also possible that we might see octa-core chips instead. True octa-core processors, which are not to be confused with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s Exynos Octa CPU, utilizes all cores at the same time. Samsung uses about half at the same time while the other half remain idol. Only time will tell if this prediction is correct.
