4GB of RAM could power the Galaxy S 5, as Samsung develops 8Gb memory chips
Since 64-bit mobile computing is the new thing, thanks to Apple, Samsung is preparing to unveil some of its new processors at CES, hopefully new octa-core and 64-bit chips. Qualcomm already announced its own 64-bit SoC, but apparently Samsung is ready to take this even further with its new memory for mobile.
The new 8Gb (meaning 1GB) low power double data rate 4 (LPDDR4) mobile DRAM developed by Samsung might hint that the Samsung Galaxy S 5 could arrive with 4GB on-board, to fully take advantage of the 64-bit architecture. Currently, flagship devices from Samsung have 3GB of RAM (like the Note 3), but the new chips are claimed to bring 50 percent higher performance and consume 40 percent less energy.
