This year, Smartphones will Have Even Faster RAM
Do you know This year, Smartphones will Have Even Faster RAM? LPDDR5T, the “world’s fastest mobile DRAM,” was unveiled by Korean hardware manufacturer SK Hynix. It is 13% faster than the LPDDR5X RAM used in high-end devices.
The “T” stands for “Turbo,” and the new RAM can process 77GB of data in one second at a speed of 9.6Gbps. LPDDR5T is an improvement over 5X, not a new generation of DRAM.
It is based on the HKMG (High-K Metal Gate) method, which boosts processing speed while reducing power consumption, and the 1Anm process, the fourth iteration of the 10nm node.
This is the first application of HKMG for DRAM chips, which SK Hynix debuted with its 5X chips last year.

In the second part of this year, the business intends to start manufacturing its quicker RAM in bulk.
Another benefit of choosing Google phones is that they support the nerdy-sounding AptX and LDAC audio codecs, allowing you to use noise-canceling headphones or wireless earbuds with far better sound quality. Samsung mobile devices also support these codecs. iPhones don’t.
The Pixel 7 has one drawback: despite Google’s assurances that the battery will last 24 hours, it’s common to run out of energy near the end of a day of intensive use. It’s not bad, but it’s frustrating in a piece of technology that is in every other respect a powerhouse. This is still the phone to beat because to the excellent photography and recognisable Pixel simplicity of use.
We may anticipate seeing it on flagship smartphones by the end of 2023 because mass manufacturing will start on it in the second half of this year. Since OEMs might not introduce LPDDR5T RAM right immediately, it’s also possible that we won’t see any this year.
In any event, it will probably show up on the upcoming crop of flagship devices, including the OnePlus 12, Samsung Galaxy S24, Xiaomi 14, and others.
