Smartphone manufacturers have started reducing the amount of RAM to 8 and 16 GB

Smartphone manufacturers have started to reduce the amount of RAM to 8 and 16 GB instead of higher values ​​such as 24 GB. A Digital Chat Station insider offered an explanation for this trend.

The main reasons for the reduction in RAM in Android smartphones, according to the informant, are the low demand for high RAM values ​​and the rising cost of memory. Gadget manufacturers are consciously reducing the amount of RAM in their devices to make their production cheaper.

In particular, Samsung and Micron are planning to raise memory prices by up to 20 percent in the first quarter of 2024. This makes high volumes of RAM less attractive from a trading point of view.

Analysts also note that recent price increases have affected not only NAND chips, but also DDR4 and DDR5 DRAM. Reducing the amount of RAM makes it possible to reduce the cost of smartphones, which can become a decisive factor for manufacturers when choosing the amount of memory in their devices.

Thus, many smartphone manufacturers have already returned to the amount of RAM of 16 GB in their flagship models, and in some cases even offer 8 GB within the same price segment. The insider claims that such characteristics are sufficient for modern smartphones, and exceeding them does not give noticeable advantages.
