Samsung’s Next-gen RAM is built for 5G and AI

It has only been a few months since Samsung unveiled the highest-capacity smartphone DRAM yet — a 12GB LPDDR4X package for premium devices — but it’s already following that up with a faster model of the same size. The Korean tech giant has started mass producing what it says is the industry’s first 12Gb LPDDR5 for phones, and it’ll also start the mass production of 12GB LPDDR5 packages later this month. Samsung introduced its LPDDR5 chip technology last year in hopes of providing 5G phones with a fast, energy-efficient RAM that can power machine learning and AI applications.
