Soon smartphones will be even faster.
In the near future the iPhone will start to be equipped with memory modules of the new generation LPDDR5. Today Samsung officially announced the completion of functional testing and inspections the industry’s first 10-nanometer 8-Gigabit memory module LPDDR5. Apple will begin to use the new Samsung one of the first among all smartphone manufacturers.
A prototype module of RAM LPDDR5 from Samsung has a transfer rate of up to 6.4 GB/s. This is 1.5 times higher than that of the module LPDDR4X DRAM, which is used in iPhone X and other flagship smartphones. The use of memory modules of new generation will significantly speed up the smartphone and make it possible to perform tasks previously unavailable on mobile devices.
New Samsung chip supports a unique sleep mode. Thanks to him, the RAM can go to “sleep”, thereby reducing their energy consumption. Samsung said that the total increase of energy efficiency through the use of LPDDR5 will be 30%.
Apple equips iPhone with RAM modules from different vendors, including Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron. However, experts authoritative resource AnandTech believe that in the future the company will rush to go to the modules LPDDR5 from Samsung. They will allow the new iPhone to work much faster and have an increased battery life.
