First, there was 1GB. Then, 2GB became the standard. Today, Samsung is upping the ante with 3GB of mobile memory.
Samsung wants to be ahead of the game. And to make that possible, the South Korean giant is announcing today that it is mass producing what looks to be the world's first 3GB LPDDR3 memory for mobile devices.
Samsung says that it intends to replace the current 2GB model used on many mobile devices, including the company's famous Galaxy series. The 3GB low power double data rate 3 (LPDDR3) mobile DRAM is believed to be the highest density mobile memory solution for next-generation smartphones.
Samsung's 3GB LPDDR3 utilizes 20-nanometer class four gigabit LPDDR3 chips which is structured symmetrically - two sets of three chips in one package. This way, Samsung says, the solution will pave the way for thinner smartphones with additional battery space.
Other advantages of using Samsung's 3GB LPDDR3 memory are high-quality full HD video playback, faster multitasking, faster data downloading, and support for LTE-A (LTE Advanced) service.
