Samsung begins mass production of 12GB LPDDR4X RAM with uMCP technology

In the Samsung Tech Day yesterday, Samsung has introduced their all new Exynos 990 SoC and announced the 12GB LPDDR4X RAM based on uMCP process.

This also means that the future of Samsung mid-range smartphone will have over 10GB of memory and it will be the first 24GB LPDDR4X RAM in the entire world. This brings 12GB DRAM to smartphones in the future and increases user experience.

Roughly 7 months ago, Samsung has launched the 16GB DRAM and 12GB LPDDRX and the new product line is based on 12GB uMCP technology. This technology solution uses four 24Gb LPDDRX4X chips and uses 1y nm process technology and eUFS3.0 memory. This new memory can break the current 8GB memory limit and provide up to 10+GB of storage capacity.

With the smartphones getting bigger, higher resolution screen, this can be benefited from Samsung’s uCMP solution especially when the user is doing heavy multitasking. It is possible to create 4K video in high frame rate and able to bring AI and machine learning into mid-range smartphones.


At the same time, Samsung is also planning to rapidly develop the availability of more than 10GB of LPDDR DRAM to meet the needs of storage solutions that are currently required by global smartphone manufacturers.
