When you think about your phone, chances are that you love it and can't think of your life without it. However, many of us have very similar complaints: they don't run fast enough and they tend to run out of room. Samsung is trying to fix that problem and many others with some new chips. The company revealed that they are going to mass produce 12GB DDR4 RAM models for their mobile devices from its 20nm fab plant, according to Engadget. The chips will take up the same amount of space as the 6GB models, meaning that they won't have to make anything bigger or thicker. They also plan to make smaller, cheaper phones that still have 3GB of RAM. Soon you won't have to sacrifice speed and memory for cost.

Recent phones from Samsung, like the Galaxy Edge 6+ currently tops out at 4GB, with 3GB being even more common. For those who want the smaller size, they could have millimeters shaved off their phones - which would make quite the difference in the "z-height."

Samsung says its new 12Gb chips are also 30 percent faster than their 8Gb counterparts, with a per-pin speed of 4266Mbps, resulting in 34Gbps of bandwidth over a 64-bit bus. This will result in faster, better performing tablets and smartphones on all types of connections. They will be at least twice as fast. Even more importantly, they correct yet another gripe that people have with their phones and tablets: they use 20 percent less energy, which means that the batteries will last longer.

They are likely to be due out with the next Samsung widespread release.
