LPDDR6 RAM (Low Power Double Data Rate 6 Random Access Memory) — the next iteration of RAM may arrive later this year. It is expected to be announced in the third quarter of this year and can be used on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset. The LPDDR6 memory, which will replace the existing LPDDR5 memory, is expected to offer improved data transfer speeds and increased bandwidth compared to its predecessor. Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S25 series is said to come with LPDDR6 memory and a Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC with increased data bandwidth to run AI tasks. This could give the flagship series an edge over the upcoming iPhone 16 series.

According to a report from Korean publication AjuNews, Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix are accelerating mass production of LPDDR6 DRAM to take the lead in the AI-driven industry. The LPDDR6 memory, which will replace the existing LPDDR5, offers improved data bandwidth for faster processing of AI tasks on the device.

The Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) will reportedly announce LPDDR6 DRAM specifications in September. Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix are also expected to introduce their LPDDR6 DRAM chips around this time.

The current generation LPDDR5 DRAM standard was announced in February 2019. Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix introduced LPDDR5X and LPDDR5T variants, respectively.

LPDDR6 performance is still under wraps. LPDDR5 has a maximum bandwidth of 6.4 Gbps, while LPDDR5X has a bandwidth of 8.5 Gbps. LPDDR6 memory is expected to be used in phones powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC to achieve increased data bandwidth for AI tasks. The Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+ models are expected to run this next-generation Qualcomm chipset in select countries, while the Galaxy S25 Ultra may use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC worldwide.

Meanwhile, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC is scheduled to arrive in October this year with Qualcomm’s custom Oryon processor cores. These CPU cores and the new LPDDR6 are speculated to run faster than the CPU cores in Apple’s upcoming A18 Pro.
