Samsung will reportedly ship LPDDR5 storage and UFS 3.0 storage later this year

Samsung is reportedly set to release their next-generation S10 Android smartphones in 2019 with LPDDR5 DRAM and UFS 3.0 storage, delivering enhanced storage performance and more efficient memory throughput.  

The chipmaker is expected to start LPDDR5 production this summer alongside UFS 3.0 storage mediums, both of which are set to deliver higher data rates than their predecessor. 

UFS 3.0 will become increasingly important as high-end smart devices continue to capture higher resolution photographs and video at increasingly high framerates, where faster read/write speeds will become critical. The higher storage speeds of UFS 3.0 will also allow faster storage mediums to load apps more quickly, though this will also come down to other device factors like processor and memory speeds as storage is not the only limiting factor in this case. 

LPDDR5 is expected to offer higher levels of memory bandwidth while also delivering an increase in power efficiency, both of which are critical when it comes to the battery life and responsiveness of today's smart devices. 

Samsung will reportedly ship LPDDR5 storage and UFS 3.0 storage later this year.

UFS? Never heard of it. Just glad it will be faster at leastQuote

I'm guessing this means DDR4 is getting replaced sometime this year and we should expect new CPU's/mobos.Quote

There is a lot more incentive to release LPDDR5 on mobile, as both the speed and power are helpful to end users and manufacturers. It will take longer for desktops a little longer to adopt it, as AMD's roadmap has the socket compatibility until 2020 for AM4.

TBH we don't need to rush DDR5 for speed reasons, at least on desktop platforms. There is no need to rush it.Quote
