Base Galaxy S20 model to have no less than 12GB of RAM, claims rumor

The cheapest Galaxy S20 variant will be equipped with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM if we are to believe the latest rumor passed along by @UniverseIce on Twitter. This would make the series more consistent across the board, assuming that an option for 16GB of RAM won’t be made available for the Galaxy S20+ or S20 Ultra models.

The Galaxy S10e was released last year as the company’s most cost-conscious flagship variant, and prospective buyers had the option of picking between 6GB and 8GB of RAM. This year, however, Samsung seems to be abandoning the ‘e’ variant for its upcoming lineup and is expected to launch the standard Galaxy S20 as the base model for the flagship series. It, too, will have a minimum of 12GB of RAM, according to the source.

If this will indeed be the case then the entire Galaxy S20 lineup will likely share the same RAM configuration. That is unless Samsung will want to become the first OEM to equip a smartphone with 16GB of RAM and rush to the market to offer this choice to customers through the S20+ or Ultra models.

The Galaxy S20 lineup is scheduled for an official unveiling on February 11. You can keep up with recent developments through our dedicated Galaxy S20 page which we update with new information regularly.

Ich finde es schade, dass Samsung nach einem guten Start im letzten Jahr scheinbar von einem Nachfolger des S10 e, DEM Lite/ Mini- Gerät dieser Baureihe (vor allem ohne gewölbte Display- Kanten), wieder Abstand genommen hat. 😪😪😪
(Wofür das S10 “Lite” stehen soll, weiß ich bis heute nicht).

Insoweit verbaut man sich die Möglichkeit eines preiswerteren “Einstiegs- Gerätes für die S20- Reihe.

Hauptsache, es wird wieder” schön” groß und teuer. 😯😯😯

That is great news! They pull a rabbit out of a hat last year with the 8 GB ram on the s10! Good job pushing the ram as it makes a difference with the lpddr5 with speed

My PC has 8GB of RAM and I consider it more than enough even for games I play. Why needing to race in RAM amount? That only raises the price further needlessly, most ppl are fine even with 4GB on a phone let alone anything higher. 6GB is the optimum value, 8+GB is already overkill

I agree, IMO 8Gb is more than enough for 99% of ppl -no matter what you do with your phone. 12Gb is apsolutelly not neccesery and is only a way to increse the price which is already high enough to begin with…

You do a lot less multi-tasking on PC than you do on phones. I never thought I’d be in a situation where I’d be gaming on my phone, then receive a call, which meant I had to take a pic of something and then send it via WhatsApp. To then go back to gaming, but I have done! Lol without 8GB RAM, the game would have closed and I’d have lost progress. Now imagine you’re updating an app or uploading to Insta in the background of gaming…. You’re right. 8GB is enough, but in today’s digital age, more would be… Read more »

That’s really rare. The heaviest mobile games require no more than 2.5GB of memory. Other apps combined probably don’t take even 2, and consider that the phone only keeps the RAM semi-full in order to make apps launch faster when they are needed. If the need for free RAM increases, Android will force-kill apps (not all, some are there for the system to function ofc) that were consuming RAM in the background to make way for foreground apps. So even with 6GB you’re still likely to have a good time. 4GB is another thing, it is not enough for heavier… Read more »
