Subsequently, Xu Jieyun, general manager of Xiaomi Public Relations Department, also expressed introspection and apologized on Weibo, saying that “the goods are not enough, rather than selling them... Xiaomi China has made such a decision, accumulate more goods and then sell it”.
As far as the Xiaomi 9 Transparent Edition is concerned, the lack of stocking is actually very easy to understand - because its 12GB LPDDR 4X mobile phone comes from Samsung, and this memory has just entered mass production.
Samsung announced that the world's first 12GB mobile phone memory production
In fact, on March 14th, Samsung Electronics officially announced the mass production of 12GB LPDDR4X memory on the official website, which is the world's first 12GB memory DRAM that can be used for smartphones.
Samsung said that with the mass production of the new LPDDR4X, Samsung now offers a comprehensive lineup of advanced memory products that provide higher performance for the new era of smartphones with 12GB of mobile DRAM and 512GB eUFS 3.0 storage.
For smartphone manufacturers, 12GB DRAM can unlock more potential, such as support for more than 5 mobile phone cameras, support for larger screen sizes, and also help on the artificial and 5G levels; at the same time, thickness of 1.1 mm It also saves more space for smartphones and makes it easier to create a slim body. For smartphone users, 12GB DRAM makes multitasking more fluid and easier to switch between apps on larger, higher resolution screens.
According to Samsung, Samsung's 12G memory has created a space of 12GB, which combines six 16Gb LPDDR4X chips based on the second-generation 10nm (1y-nm) process into one package. In addition, by using Samsung's 1y-nm technology, the new 12GB removable memory delivers 34.1GB of data transfer rate per second while minimizing power consumption due to increased DRAM capacity.
Samsung also said that based on potential high demand in the industry, Samsung intends to increase the memory supply of 1y-nm based 8GB and 12GB DRAM in Pyeongtaek, Korea, by more than three times in the second half of 2019.
It can only be said that Samsung's ability to innovate in memory and industry control is too strong.
If you want to use 12GB of memory, you have to look at Samsung's face.
For the smart phone industry, core configurations like chips and memory rely on the innovation capabilities and product delivery capabilities of supply chain vendors. For example, 12GB of memory is currently used.Accessories, you have to watch Samsung on a global scale.
However, in terms of 12GB of memory, Chinese smartphone manufacturers have long been eyeing.
For example, as early as December 18, 2018, Lenovo also announced a One More Thing, the Lenovo Z5 Pro 855 version, at the launch of its mobile phone model Z5s. At that time, Lenovo said that this Z5 Pro 855 version, in addition to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor version, also has a maximum of 12GB of memory (priced at 4398 yuan); it can guarantee that this product does not open 50 applications at the same time The card is still smooth after two years.
However, in the Lenovo Z5 Pro 855 model released in January 2019, there is no 12GB memory version. Of course, the regular process also indicated that the 12GB memory version will be released in February, but it has not been fulfilled - this version is still stuck on the PPT.
On February 20, 2019, Xiaomi and Samsung released their own annual flagship models - Xiaomi 9 series and Samsung S10 series. Among them, Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi 9 transparent exclusive version, which adopts 12GB RAM + 256GB ROM configuration. For 12GB of memory, Lei Jun said that it is the world's first mass production of large memory, in fact, Samsung has just announced mass production of 12GB of memory.
Due to the time difference, Samsung's S10 series debuted a few hours later. Among them, Samsung S10+ also launched a super high configuration of 12GB RAM + 1TB ROM, the national bank version is priced at 10,999 yuan, can be said to break through the sky - but there is no doubt that the 12GB RAM here is Samsung's own products.
From the current situation, Samsung's 12GB RAM is in the early stage of mass production, but it must supply both Xiaomi and Samsung. In this case, the Xiaomi 9 enjoyment version is likely to be available in 12GB of memory. Samsung received the restriction on the goods. After all, Samsung naturally needs to meet the supply demand of its own mobile phone products. This is also Samsung's advantage in the control of the supply chain.
It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi 9 enjoys the transparent version, but it has been sold wholesale on March 1st, but the stocking volume is not large, basically it is second light.
As for the Lenovo Z5 Pro 855 version, if you want to use Samsung's 12GB RAM, I am afraid I have to queue up.
to sum up
The smartphone industry has developed to the present day, and the pursuit of mobile phone memory is getting higher and higher.iPhoneIt has reached 4GB, and the Android camp is even worse. At present, 8GB RAM is standard on high-end machines, 6GB RAM is starting to dive to the low-end, and 12GB is a new product highlight – but in the hardware supply chain, Samsung has led mobile RAM in the past decade. The upgrade of size, to this day, its status as a king is still unmovable.
