The new mobile memory, which comes just five months after Samsung started mass production of its 12GB LPDDR4X, is built on Samsung's second-generation 10-nanometer process and is said to be optimized for AI and 5G applications. The company's LPDDR5 memory will be used for upcoming flagship smartphones with up to 12 GB of memory in the coming months.
The new modules are said to be 1.3 times faster than the last LPDDR4 modules.
Almost every major phone manufacturer is expected to release 5G phones through 2019 - with the exception of Apple- but it may not be until the 2020 launch of the rumored Galaxy S11 that we see this technology make its way into our hands.
Samsung also plans to start mass producing 12 GB LPDDR5 packages later in July, each combining eight of the 12Gb chips, in line with growing demand for higher smartphone performance and capacity from premium smartphone manufacturers.

The new DRAM will be combined into 12GB RAM packages which will apparently be able to transfer 44 GB of data, or about 12 full-HD (3.7GB-sized) movies, in one second. In a post on its newsroom site earlier today, Samsung outlined what the chips would offer and when we could expect to see them in smartphones. Samsung claims that the new generation of LPDDR5X RAM has data rates of 5,500MB/sec which is faster than the LPDDR4X RAM which supports 4266Mb/s.
The new-gen DRAM module is also less power-hungry at up to 30 percent less energy consumption.
In order to further strengthen its position in the global memory market, Samsung is planning to develop 16Gb LPDDR5 DRAM chips next year, which will likely show up in flagship smartphones towards the end of 2020.
