Samsung starts mass production of industry’s first 16GB LPDDR5 mobile DRAM

Samsung has recently announced that it has begun the mass production of the industry’s first 16-gigabyte (GB) LPDDR5 mobile DRAM package for next-generation premium smartphones. 

Even though such high mobile DRAM finds no application but to improve performance and for selling perspective, Samsung has already started the production of 16GB RAM units. These 16GB LPDDR5 RAM units offer:

  • A data transfer rate of 5,500 Mb/s which is almost 1.3 times faster than the previous mobile memory (LPDDR4X, 4266Mb/s).
  • Consists of eight 12GB chips and four 8GB chips, being equipped on the premium smartphones with twice the DRAM capacity you find in many high-end laptops and gaming PCs these days.
  • When compared to an 8GB LPDDR4X RAM, the new mobile LPDDR5 DRAM delivers more than 20% energy savings in spite of providing up to twice the capacity.

As Samsung continues to expand LPDDR5 mobile DRAM production at its Pyeongtaek site, the company plans to mass-produce 16Gb LPDDR5 products based on third-generation 10nm-class (1z) process technology in the second half of this year, in line with the development of a 6,400Mb/s chipset


Even though there’s no mention that the latest 16GB LPDDR5 DRAM should be the one that is used in Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra that was introduced earlier this month.
