The new 12 GB low-power double data rate 4X UFS-based multichip package by Samsung combines four 24 Gb LPDDR4X chips and ultra-fast eUFS 3.0 NAND storage into a single package. This new mobile memory solution can hit a transfer rate of 4,266 Mbps, allowing mid-end handsets to shoot smooth 4K videos and run AI/machine learning applications.

Although the global memory market is on a downward spiral nowadays and Intel might soon grab the crown from Samsung, the South Korean tech giant keeps introducing new products based on the latest technologies. Today, the time has come for the industry's first 12 GB LPDDR4X-based uMCP solution to enter mass production.

The 12 GB LPDDR4X UFS-based multichip package brings together four 1y-nanometer 24 Gb LPDDR4X chips and eUFS 3.0 NAND storage, while a similar 10 GB solution comes with two 24 GB chips, two 16 GB chips, and eUFS 3.0 NAND storage support. 

According to Samsung's executive vice president of Memory Marketing, Sewon Chun, the new 12 GB solution targets both high-end and mid-range devices. The data transfer rate achieved by the 12 GB LPDDR4X uMCP package goes all the way up to 4,266 Mbps and allows for smooth 4K video recording and advanced AI/machine learning applications.

Since this product is already in mass production, the first handsets to take advantage of it should drop just in time for the winter holiday season. Do you think that having 12 GB of memory in a smartphone/phablet is overkill or can you imagine already the benefits it can bring?

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
