The Note 10 series will mostly stick with the LPDDR4 modules, but the highest variants might feature 12GB of RAM.

And considering Ice universe mentions the memory is for "Premium Smartphones", and that the lead time appears right, that naturally leads to the conclusion that this new flagship RAM module is set for the flagship launched after the Note 10, which will be the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus.

Samsung announced its mass production of 2GB Low Power Double Data Rate 5 (LPDDR5) mobile DRAM, which would maximize the 5G communication and artificial intelligence ability of smartphones.

Almost every major phone manufacturer is expected to release 5G phones through 2019 - with the exception of Apple- but it may not be until the 2020 launch of the rumored Galaxy S11 that we see this technology make its way into our hands. The Korean tech giant has begun mass-producing what it says is the industry's first 12Gb LPDDR5 for phones, and it will additionally start the mass-production of 12GB LPDDR5 packages in this month.

His Dark Materials takes place in a fantasy world where human souls take the form of animals, called Deamons in the books. They are joined by The Wire's Clarke Peters (as The Master) and Logan star Dafne Keen (as the aforementioned Lyra).

That is really a topical way of saying the new premium memory chips are faster than the previous generation. It was designed, however, to be around 1.3 times faster. When made into a 12GB package, the LPDDR5 is able to transfer 44GB of data, or about 12 full-HD (3.7GB-sized) movies, in only a second. 5500 Mbit/s. In addition, the new chip is 30% more energy-efficient thanks to new circuit design and energy-saving functions.

Jung-bae Lee, executive vice president of DRAM Product & Technology at Samsung Electronics, said they are thrilled to be supporting the timely launch of 5G flagship smartphones.

Samsung says in a press release that depending on the demand from global customers, it is planning to transfer the production of its 12Gb LPDDR5 mobile DRAM to its Pyeongtaek campus in South Korea starting next year.
