SEOUL, Oct. 20 (Korea Bizwire) – Samsung Electronics Co. has rolled out the semiconductor industry’s first 8-gigabyte mobile DRAM package for smartphones, based on its advanced 10-nanometer production technology, the company said Thursday.
The new package of mobile chips is expected to significantly improve mobile user experiences for those using high-definition, large-screen devices, Samsung said in a statement.
Choi Joo-sun, executive vice president of Samsung, said in the statement that the new mobile DRAM “will enable more capable next-generation, flagship mobile devices around the world.”
The new mobile DRAM features more efficient power consumption because of the 10-nanometer production technology, Samsung said.
Earlier this month, Samsung said it began mass production of chips based on the 10-nanometer technology.
Some analysts have speculated that the 10-nanometer chips could be used for Samsung’s next Galaxy S smartphone.
