Even though we don’t know when the successor of the Optimus G2, the LG G2, will be launched, it seems that it’s worth waiting for it because it will be packing some impressive pieces of hardware. While, the new version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 powered by the Snapdragon 800 will always be known as the first LTE-Advanced smartphones, it looks like the LG G2 will have something to brag about as well, as a new report suggest that will be the first phone coming with 3GB of RAM>
It might be the first, but it appears that it won’t be the only one because the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, phablet expected to go live at the end of the summer, will also include 3GB of RAM, according to Korean site Hankyung.
As a matter of fact, LG was the first phone maker to manufacture a device with 2 GB of RAM, and we’re talking about the Optimus LTE 2, which was sold exclusively in the company’s home country and was meant to compete with the Galaxy S2, which was still packing 1GB of RAM.
It seems that LG wants to push thing even further in terms of technical specifications with its upcoming G2. Apart from the impressive amount of RAM, the handset will also sport the Snapdragon 800 CPUmaking it compatible with LTE-Advanced connectivity, just like the Galaxy S4. The specs have not been officially confirmed yet, but rumor has it that it will also feature a 5-inch full HD display and a very slim profile. The slim profile was showed by a couple of leaked photos according to which, the device will have the volume rockers located on its back, fact which let the developers come up with a very nice design.
When it comes to the Galaxy Note 3, even though there have been a lot of rumors about its display size, we’re still not sure if it will measure 5.7 inches or 5.99 inches. Also, some reports suggested that Samsung is experiencing some issues manufacturing enough AMOLED displays in time for the launch, and the company is taking into consideration implementing LCD screens on the Note 3. As for its specs, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 800 SoC, which will come along with 3 GB of RAM and a 13 MP primary camera.
The mobile technology is going forward and it’s not going to stop at here as SK Hynix, one of the major companies that provide memory chips, has recently stated that it has developed the first 8Gb LPDDR3. In other words, it means that the phone makers will be able to make devices with up to 4GB of RAM, by assembling 4 8Gb chips. However, the chip maker stated that it will begin to mass produce the memory at the end of 2013, so we won’t be seeing smartphones with 4GB of RAM sooner than next year.
