Korean analysts see 4GB of RAM for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Days after the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro was unveiled with 4GB of RAM, a report from Korea says that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will match Xiaomi's new flagship by including 4GB of RAM inside the handset. This comes from analysts working for Korea Investment & Securities, who expect the Samsung Galaxy S6 to have 3GB of RAM as seen on the AnTuTu Benchmark site.

Besides the extra curved edges on both sides of the Galaxy S6 Edge, and the 4GB of RAM, both models are expected to feature a 1440 x 2560 resolution screen, a 20MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP "selfie" snapper up front. Both models are also expected to sport a metal build, a non-removable battery, and the octa-core Exynos 7420 CPU under the hood.

Recently, we told you that issues with the Snapdragon 810 chip overheating would lead to Samsung stuffing its home grown silicon into 80% to 90% of the first batch of Galaxy S6 units to roll off the assembly line. But recent talk that Qualcomm would ship the chip on time to LG and Xiaomi might change the actual percentage of handsets powered by each processor.

We should know what is going on for sure in March during MWC when the Samsung Galaxy S6, and possibly the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, are expected to be unveiled.

Of course, it takes ROCKET SCIENCE packing RAM on SoC.

No point in that much RAM when they still can't get TouchWiz optimized enough so it won't use so much memory.

Spidey sense is going crazy,... you're an alter ego of someone else here.

I don't care.

I don't care if you didn't ask, either.

He can . this Is a discussion forum site. Everyone has the voice of reasons.

Thank you mr hypocrite. Now every time you or meanest cry tears for a comment I made I'm going to use this as a response. "He can. this Is a discussion forum site. Everyone has the voice of reasons."

Only you don't voice any reason. So it clearly doesn't apply to a cry baby troll like you.

He is giving an example. Which you deny. Having a conversation and debating with you is useless. Look on the bright side. Leave Apple's boundaries.

Soooooo true!!!! That fancy 810 and 4gb of ram won't show its full potential unless touchwiz is slimmed down and better optimized!

Enjoy your whopping 1GB Ram phone.

Actually TouchWiz is optimized quite well on the Note 4 Its more or less on par with the iPhone 6+ I'd imagine the S6 would more or less on par with the next iPhones 6S+ or 7+ as well

I would say it makes all the sense of the world to add some much RAM when TouchWiz uses a lot. Lost of RAM = Lots can be used. Your logic is what doesn't make sense at all.

It might be 3GB IMO. And Sammy's own chip is also a better option to SD810 as we've seen in Alpha.

neah non removable batt..

No matter how much RAM Samsung put on Galaxy, LagWiz never stops lagging, while iPhones and Xperias work perfectly fine even with 1GB of RAM!

Didn't iphone 6/6+ have crash issue some time ago due to less RAM? P.S- Are you that Jakelee or Gagakiller?

No it was because Apple used TLC eMMC memory instead of the usual MLC eMMC memory most phones/tablets use TLC is much cheaper, but slower and less reliable The Apple-made memory controller had issues with the TLC memory since they usually use MLC memory

The TouchWiz talking points are getting old guys. I also see the 100th iOS update hasn't completely ironed out all the bugs yet. Can't wait to see the problems that arise when they pillage even more Android features in iOS 9.
