ASUS ROG Phone 2 2019 – Smartphone with 16GB RAM
Flagship smartphones in 2018, as a flagship rule, are equipped with RAM of 6 or 8 GB – like some laptops. But in the near future, these numbers may become less impressive as smartphones with 10GB RAM and 16GB RAM are already planned.
According to the insider source, ASUS several months ago experimented with the creation of a flagship smartphone equipped with 10 GB of RAM. The model of this smartphone is yet announced, perhaps, it is a game smartphone ASUS ROG Phone, which was introduced this week and received 8 GB of RAM. And, yes earlier there was a plan of equipping the smartphone with 10GB RAM. Maybe, ASUS ROG Phone 2 with 10GB or 16GB RAM will be a reality in 2019.
It is noted that the company decided to abandon the use of 10 GB of RAM due to the difficulties with the placement of components. As a rule, the RAM chips are located on top of the processor. But in this case, there was not enough space to accommodate the required number of memory modules in the thin case of the smartphone.
But it can not be ruled out that in the future, memory module manufacturers will be able to increase the capacity of chips, and therefore 10 GB of RAM will require fewer chips. Accordingly, the layout of PoP can successfully fit into the smartphone’s case. Alternatively, smartphone manufacturers can go another way, for example, to increase the thickness of mobile devices, and the additional space that has appeared can take not only a higher stack of chips but also a larger battery of increased capacity.
