Samsung unveils the 10nm LPDDR4 6GB DRAM chip heading for the Galaxy Note 6?

Samsung unveils the 10nm LPDDR4 6GB DRAM chip heading for the Galaxy Note 6?
In 2012, the Japanese version of the Samsung Galaxy S III had 2GB of DRAM. At the time, this was surprising. The U.S. version of the phone contained 1GB of DRAM, which was the standard at the time. Four short years later, we are now entering the 6GB DRAM era on Android phones. And Samsung is joining the parade as it has announced its latest DRAM chip for high-end handsets. During the Samsung Mobile Solutions Forum held in Shenzhen, China yesterday, Sammy revealed a new LPDDR4 6GB DRAM chip produced using the 10nm process. That should make the chip more power efficient, helping to extend the battery life of new handsets using it. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will be a beast if the rumored specs are true. We're talking about a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. A 4000mAh battery is said to be inside. Historically, Samsung has stuffed the Galaxy Note with the latest hardware and software available to it, usually keeping the phablet ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S series. Putting the new 10nm LPDDR4 6GB DRAM chip inside the Galaxy Note 6 would be exactly what we would expect from the manufacturer.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was released last August. If the new Galaxy Note 6 has a similar release date, that would give us plenty of time for more leaks and rumors of the phablet to surface. Sammy is building another beast and the puzzle pieces are beginning to come together. Stay tuned!

Aren't these overkill spec sheet standard for the note line by now? What we need is a real innovation or at least a functional feature that actually makes day to day use of the phone or our experiences better not some unending spec sheet upon spec sheet overkill that doesn't make a difference in real world usage or really do much for the user experience. Experience will always trump spec sheet anyday anytime.

Or a kid who has never used a Note. They don't seem to understand that better specs means an increase of features, without making the device slow to a crawl. This is why no phone is faster than the Note, because considering how much weight its pulling and that fact its faster than what is claimed to be flagship devices, it is a beast in its own rank.

The multitasking tray doesn't actually show running apps. It shows a least recently used list of application some still in memory but many already killed. When the foreground app requests memory and said memory is "hogged" by apps which were switched to background, those apps are killed. Please use the brain. Android and iOS is day and night different. Steve said: iOS was designed for launching apps. No real true multitasking. Fake freeze and stop multitasking. THE IOS WAS DESIGNED FOR KID TOYS. What is probably happening to Ridesouth is that he is using iOS 9 on an iPhone 6s. The combination just never really worked and apple is to blame about it they should either have not supported the 4G or supported it correctly. Another thing which causes the same symptom in the address bar of safari is if one has thousands of bookmark. This has been known to happen due to a bug in iCloud bookmark syncing which can produce thousands of duplicate.

Well we sure are glad that you arent leading the technology industry cause we would still be stuck in 64MB of RAM. Can you explain how 6GB of RAM is overkill?

Careful, he might build an alienware laptop running on 2gb ram and 128GB HDD.

128GB HDD? Thats an overkill. Who needs that? s/

It's not overkill when there are plenty of apps to use, heavily rendered games updating almost every week, and people are just too lazy to kill them on background.

The Note series already trumps everything in the market.

Samsung calls it "10nm class" , just to msilead. It is in fact 18nm.

If this will come true, then galaxy s8 will also have 6gb ram. Note series was always the small hint of what might be the internals of the next galaxy phone. Touchwiz problems have been polished on s7 so I think samsung will have a good run for the coming years. Kudos to their new CEO for listening to customers.

actually, a separate phone is in development for that purpose !! note 6 isn't intended for daydream.

This is the "Godzilla" of all phones. No phone in the world is better than the Note. NOT A SINGLE ONE made by anybody period. Dare I say, as long as Samsung makes the Note, there will NEVER be a better phone sporting a similar feature-set. I would say, all the phones that did come with a pen and tried to mimic it, were all complete failures. The best beast of smartphones.

I have to agree. Especially with the new pen design of the note 5. It makes me want to use the pen more often than before. The clicking mechanism is just so addictive!

It's more likely that this will be used for the Galaxy S8 next year and not in the upcoming note 6.
