The Galaxy S20 and S20+ are "worth looking forward to", apparently
Enticed by yesterday's live images of the Galaxy S20? Well, renowned leaker @UniverseIce has given us another reason to look forward to the device besides its looks. Tweeting today, they announced to their followers that the standard configuration for all S20 models will include 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, which would be more than most modern laptops have.
Samsung moved from 4 GB to 8 GB for the Galaxy S10 last year, so another 4 GB jump does not seem ludicrous, although that would give a Galaxy S10e successor an additional 6 GB of RAM. Most older flagships and modern midrange handsets still get on fine with 4 GB or 6 GB even in demanding games, so it remains to be seen what advantages 12 GB will bring over 8 GB. LPDDR5 consumes less power while having higher peak data transfer speeds than LPDDR4x though, so there should be tangible benefits in those regards.
Storage options remain unknown at this stage, or if the Galaxy S20 series will have microSD card readers. According to the ensuing thread following @UniverseIce's most recent tweet though, many people would prefer more storage than more RAM. Have Samsung got it the wrong way round, then?
