Will we see 3GB of RAM on Samsung's 2013 high-end smartphones?

Speculation about what we can expect from Samsung next year starts with talk that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will stuff 3GB of RAM into the device and a leaked picture shows what appears to be a phone with no hint of a button...

that wrong. it says Gb not GB. Gb stands for Gigabit, Not GigaByte.
so its about internal storage not ram
5. Fayeznoor (Posts: 71; Member since: 15 Nov 2011)
this means only 375 mb ram by my calculation
3 "gigabit (Gb)" = 0.375 "gigabyte (GB)"
kind of fake

In my opinion we rather see 4GB of RAM than 3GB. And even if we will see 3GB of RAM then I think it should be only at the end of 2013.

also phonearena answered you ! hahaha:
UPDATE: It should be pointed out that despite the sticker reading Gb, the source says that it does stand for GigaByte, not GigaBit. The stickers are, of course, for internal use only!

4GB of RAM will happen before you see 3.

Yea , because you need 3 GB of RAM so flipping much , how stupid can you be ? Bigger is not always better , this is not a workstation !!! It's a goddamn PHONE !

For now. Phones will be workstation-like in the next few years. No need to get mad about technology moving forward.

Dude, chill, he was just making a point, no need to get all snippy.

Workstations typically are equipped with 8+ GB of RAM nowadays (16 GB is probably minimum acceptable configuration for workstations now). The GS III in the U.S. is shipping with 2 GB. Depending on how memory-hungry Key Lime Pie is, the GS IV may ship with 4 GB of RAM.
Anyone who doesn't understand that smartphones are really nothing more than handheld computers combined with a wireless network and telephone, needs to re-think their understanding.

Honestly doesn't make sense, why would Google make the Galaxy Nexus with 1GB of RAM and make Key Lime Prime resource hungry??

To get you to trade in your GN for the new model?

you are right who need 3 GB of ram in his phone? for my opinion, all we need right now is improving all type of OS and improving the network coverage and not forgetting low call's charge

no acceptable.........i button is compulsory...wat happens if ur device hangs that button will be help full....added to this its not about dual cores or quad cores or 3 GB rams...its about overall performance!!

JellyBean's Project Butter prevents lags/crashes anyway.

Your probably talking about the Gnote 2 ;)

SG4 will be 3gb to 4gb Note 3 will be 4gb. SGS3 has LTE and quad in South Korea and probobly release here as a sgs3 + or something

Dual Core A15 (run circles around the Quad Core A9 Exynos) would be fantastic with 2GB of RAM, what are you gonna be running with 3GB of RAM anyway, I can't max out 1GB on my S2, but 3???

A15 would be awesome..your right even on my Galaxy S Advance with 768 mb ram with 555 mb user available I can't max out. Still 1 gb minimum for a midrange phone like mine would be great..a healthy margin..

The reason you can't max out out is Android 's built in task manager, which closes background and long dormant apps. But less ram still means less you can do at the same time, if that matters to you.

samsungs not apple they don't make + or half way upgrades

3GB of RAM is really not necessary next... 2GB will do for today's apps and phones.
11. g2a5b0e (Posts: 3725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
I agree. 3GB of RAM will not be necessary for next year's high-end phones. I can't speak for 2014 though...

Lets get Jellybean on most of the devices before 2012 ends first.

Hell, ICS on most devices would be an improvement.
