The new modules will also help flagship smartphones in cutting-edge technology applications such as 5G, AI, UHD videos, and machine learning.

Samsung's 12 Gb LPDDR5 memory devices feature a 5500 MT/s data transfer rate, which is about 30% higher when compared to now used LPDDR4X-4266 DRAM. In basic speak, that means speedy memory with a throughput of 5500Mb/s for future flagship phones like those from Samsung's own Galaxy line-up.

The Korean tech giant has begun mass-producing what it says is the industry's first 12Gb LPDDR5 for phones, and it will additionally start the mass-production of 12GB LPDDR5 packages in this month.

Manufacturing node aside, Samsung says its 12Gb LPDDR5 memory can hit 5,500 megabits per second (Mbps). A 12GB package can transfer 44GB of data, or roughly 12 full HD movies, in just one second. While many high-end phones now on the market, including the Galaxy S10, utilize the previous generation of LPDDR4X DRAM, Samsung says this latest chip evolution will bring optimized support for 5G and A.I. applications.

To manage production capacity, Samsung said that it would consider moving its 12-gigabit LPDDR5 production to a production base in Pyeongtaek next year.
