Samsung Teasing Future Smartphones With 4GB of RAM

By Gary Cutlack on at

That boring square thing up there is your gateway to enhanced mobile phone fun, in the form of Samsung's new 8Gb LPDDR4 RAM chip. It's a one gigabit memory chip, but designed to be whacked into phones and tablets in groups of four. Hence a Galaxy S5 or similar with 4GB of RAM might be your next fantasy hardware buy.

As Samsung has shown us in the past, it has a habit of foreshadowing tech specs we'll see in its Galaxy S flagship models around this time of year, so we could well see a model with 4GB of RAM in it some time during 2014. Couple this with the new ISOCELL camera sensor it's also teased and the alleged 64-bit Exynos processor range, and it looks like we already have a good idea of what's likely to be inside at last one of Samsung's next high-end models.
