Samsung Electronics announced that it has started working on its new model of 2GB Low Power Double Data Rate 5 (LPDDR5) mobile DRAM. Standing up as the World’s Largest chipmaker, it will Pack eight chips into A 12 GB LP DDR5 DRAM and supply the new phones bearing flagship.
A 12GB DRAM was introduced by Samsung in March which is an evolution of the Previous generation 12GB LPDDR4X. Samsung in a report in its newsroom site outlined what the chips have to offer and users can expect to see them in the upcoming smartphones by the company.
