The Korean smartphone maker Samsung is speculated to be testing a buttonless smartphone, which will include 3GB of RAM.
The competition in the smartphone market is growing day after day. Smartphone makers are facing a tough challenge to offer more to customers in terms of hardware specifications as well enhancements to the software.
Additionally, the smartphone market has seen a trend where businesses are offering powerful processor in their devices. Apple launched its iPhone 5 with the A6 processor which the company claims has double the speed of its previous iteration. HTC One X+ hosts a powerful Quad-core Nidia Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz. Samsung is not to be left out as the Galaxy Note 2 offers a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor.
Many of Samsung's devices, as well as other company's smartphones are packed with a 2GB RAM. Now Samsung is alllegedly testing a 3GB RAM smartphone, which is expected to be unveiled in 2013. Previous rumors indicated that the smartphone, equipped with 3GB RAM, will be none other than the Galaxy S4, the successor of Galaxy S3. However, Samsung has dismissed any claims of working on its flagship model's successor, the Galaxy S4.
The company, however, has confirmed that it has begun mass production of 128GB embedded memory for its next-generation smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. With the production of 128GB internal storage underway, the question that piques the mind is if the device equipped with 128GB of RAM will also feature 3GB of RAM.
"By doubling the highest density of its previous eMMC products, Samsung expects to contribute significantly to a timely release of leading-edge mobile devices," said Wanhoon Hong, executive vice president, Memory Sales & Marketing, Samsung Electronics. Storage capacity of 128GB means that consumers can store up to 15 full HD video files of up to 8GB each in the device.
Smartphone users and tech gurus may question the need of a 3GB RAM smartphone. With new and enhanced features introduced on smartphone by businesses, Samsung may be working on a feature that actually requires the need for 3GB of RAM.
If the rumors of a 3GB RAM smartphone equipped with 128GB internal storage becomes a reality, it is anybody's guess if the smartphone will send rivals looking for cover, or these features will become a norm in top-end smartphones in the near future.
