● Smartphones are quickly becoming the preferred choice3 for snapping photos to traditional cameras, with more innovative features such as AI-powered personalization, high-res sensors and continuous optical zoom. ● Smartphone games account for nearly half of video gaming revenue4 worldwide – and mobile games are expected to surpass 100 billion in revenue by 2023. Smartphones now offer cinema-quality graphics, powerful audio and smooth game play, along with the convenience of mobility. According to recent research, the mobile gaming market is the fastest growing market segment5, dwarfing the markets for gaming consoles and PC gaming. ● Smartphones leverage on-device AI/ML and intelligent edge computing to deliver enhanced features, such as speech and audio recognition, biometrics and continuous awareness – capabilities that enable users to track their fitness stats, talk to text, use digital assistance and more. Additionally, the introduction of 5G to mobile technology can make smartphones up to 100 times faster, while increasing connection reliability.Among the key smartphone components that enable all of this incredible functionality, memory is one of the most critical. Without high-performance memory solutions, smartphones would not be able to process and store the vast amounts of data necessary to power today’s advanced mobile applications. What kind of memory is required? The kind that enables lightning-fast processing speeds while minimizing power consumption. High-performance, Low-power Memory Makes It All Possible To that end, Samsung has been working closely with Qualcomm Technologies to validate and optimize its 14nm-based 16Gb, 7.5Gps LPDDR5X solution for use with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Mobile Platforms. Samsung’s 7.5Gps LPDDR5X solutions deliver approximately 1.2X faster speed than previous iterations, such as the 6.4Gbps LPDDR5 deployed in today’s premium smartphones. What’s more, Samsung’s LPDDR5X solution leverages advanced circuit designs as well as dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) to lower power consumption by about 20%.
