Xiaomi demonstrates that not all LPDDR5 RAM is the same as the Mi 11 gets a handy +16% memory speed boost
More details about the Xiaomi Mi 11 are being shared, and this time Lu Weibing has been pointing out the intricate details of the RAM type that the flagship series is going to sport. Unsurprisingly, the Mi 11 will have LPDDR5 RAM, but it won’t be just the normal type that you can find in the Xiaomi Mi 10. The latest premium device from the Chinese OEM gets faster “full blood” LPDDR5.
To help explain the difference, Xiaomi has produced a graph that shows LPDDR5 doing nicely at 5,500 Mb/s. However the “full blood” (machine translation) variant of LPDDR5 can do better than that, and with a 16% performance increase it can speed along at 6,400 Mb/s. A 900 Mb/s increase in RAM speed for a smartphone is nothing to be sneezed at.
So not only is the Xiaomi Mi 11 going to be first smartphone to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 when it’s revealed on December 28 but apparently it will also be the trend-setter with this particular “full blood” LPDDR5 RAM. It’s the sort of detail that is easily overlooked among camera MPs and display pixel count, but faster RAM means a faster system performance, which is something all smartphone users can appreciate.
