Samsung introduced the first LPDDR5X RAMs to the global market at the end of 2021, establishing a new benchmark for smartphone development. A significant portion of Samsung’s revenue comes from the manufacturing and selling of components, despite the fact that many people may only be familiar with it for its presence in the consumer market, which includes smartphones, smart TVs, appliances, and much more. However, the new RAMs in question are still pricey and exclusive. To the extent that a year after their release, they are available only on certain smartphones.

Gizchina News of the week
It is undeniable that LPDDR5X memories will gradually enter the next generation of smartphones. Especially in the highest price range (flagships), despite the low current adoption. And Samsung is aware of this to the extent that it challenges it to raise its own bar. In fact, Samsung has achieved 8.5 Gbps of speed with the new LPDDR5X RAM. Surpassing the 7.5 Gbps achieved in recent months and creating a new benchmark for the DRAM memory industry.
But not just smartphones, Samsung designed these LPDDR5X RAMs with the PC, server, data center, AI, metaverse, and automotive industries in mind as well. This is possible by the combination of high performance, high bandwidth and low energy consumption. In addition to a small form factor, making it compatible with all kinds of electronic products.
Android smartphone manufacturers have not stated anything regarding the new memory yet. But this is where Qualcomm’s statements. Which assert that their Snapdragon platform was the first to support the new 8.5 Gbps LPDDR5X RAM, come in handy. We anticipate that after their introduction on Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, they will be introduced on Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and all upcoming flagships. Including the Xiaomi 13, OnePlus 11, OPPO Find X6, and others. At the moment, we are just a few weeks away from the launch of the upcoming Xiaomi flagships.
