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


Last updated: January 13th, 2020 at 14:28 UTC+01:00

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.
