Samsung mass produces 4GB LPDDR2 RAMs, wants to make 2GB RAMs standard in smartphones


Samsung has begun manufacturing 2GB low-power consuming mobile phone memory chips with the aim of making it a standard spec in the near future. The Korean handset makers are hoping to up the ante by mass-producing 2o nanometer 4GB LPDDR2 RAMs in the hope of replacing the 1GB RAM currently used in most of the Android smartphones.

Stripping the memory chip from 30 nm to 20 nm will not only help the device stay slim but will also aid in making the 2GB chip a mainstream product by 2013. The new chips will run at 1066 Mbps without any extra power and in fact will cut down from their predecessors.
