Coming Soon: Android Smartphones with 6GB RAM, Powered by Samsung!

To come out straight, the PC I'm using right now to publish this post has only 4GB of RAM on it. Can you imagine?.. When there are still so many PCs with 4GB of RAM today, some bad guys are already producing 6GB RAM for Smartphones. Yeah, Smartphones. This is really amazing!

Samsung 6GB RAM for Smartphones

There is no doubt that we have so many Smartphones with 4GB RAM today, Smartphones like ASUS Zenfone 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, OnePlus 2 and so many others. In addition to those, more and more smartphones are still launching almost every week with 4GB of RAM, so it's time to look forward and catch a glimpse of the future and that's why Samsung has started mass producing the industry's first 6GB mobile DRAM chips. 

Samsung started mass producing the 12Gb LPDDR4 RAM chips (6GB RAM) using its 20nm process technology. This automatically makes them the first company in the universe to achieve this feat.

To clarify the 12Gb LPDDR4 RAM mentioned above,  please note that lowercase 'b' is different from uppercase 'B' when used with G. Gb stands for Gigabit while GB stands for Gigabyte. As there are 8 bits in a byte, a 12Gb chip can actually hold in 1.5GB of information so by pairing together four such chips, Samsung can now make smartphones that come with a whopping 6GB of RAM. According to Samsung, the new 12Gb LPDDR4 RAM chips will be 30 percent faster compared to the company's 8Gb chips while consuming 20 percent less power.
FYI, towards the end of 2014, Samsung became the first company to mass produce 4GB RAMs and that is what Smartphones such as the OnePlus 2, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 use and it is also the highest seen so far on Smartphones.

According to Samsung, future flagships will come with 6GB of RAM, enabling "seamless multitasking and maximum performance within the latest operating system (OS) environments". Although more RAM is usually a good thing on any computing device, but is 6GB of RAM actually not over-killing for a smartphone? I'd really love to hear your opinion.
