Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Could be The First Phone To Feature 10nm 6GB RAM Chip
Yesterday, Samsung showcased its 10nm LPDDR4 6GB DRAM chip at a Mobile Solutions Form event in Shenzhen, China. While the company didn’t disclose where it plans to put all that memory, speculations are that this could power the new Galaxy Note 6.
We’re seeing advances in processors and RAM chips, which are still in relative accordance with Moore’s Law, but the lithium ion battery technology is essentially at a halt. Which means, there is need for smaller and more efficient high power chips that could keep battery life in stride with more demanding components.
Well Samsung’s 10nm chip could do exactly what we’re talking about here. It won’t only be faster and more efficient, but would also leave more room in the device to be devoted to the battery.
The flagship race in the smartphone market is getting more and more intensified so the companies are now focusing to create devices with their own unique set of features, which could set them apart from the crowd.
Samsung using 6GB of RAM in Note 6 would definitely not be something new, as Chinese companies like Vivo and LeEco have already phones in the market with that much of memory. But, perhaps none of them were built using 10nm process technology.
At the event, Head of Corporate Strategy at Samsung Electronics Gee-Sung Choi said:
In the ever-changing mobile market, innovation is to promote the sustainable development of the same power. Samsung will through continuous technological innovation, to maintain differentiated products and services, leading China mobile market growth and leap.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 6 at an Unpacked event ahead of IFA 2016 in Berlin. The device is rumored to feature 5.8-inch QHD screen, 2.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 823 processor and a massive 4200mAh battery.
