Micron's Low-Power DDR5 DRAM Boosts Performance and Consumer Experience of Motorola's New Flagship Edge+ Smartphone

Micron Technology, Inc., together with Motorola, today announced integration of Micron's low-power DDR5 (LPDDR5) DRAM into Motorola's new motorola edge+ smartphone, bringing the full potential of the 5G experience to consumers. Micron and Motorola worked in close collaboration to enable the edge+ to reach 5G network speeds that require maximum processing power coupled with high bandwidth memory and storage.

With 12 gigabytes (GB) of industry-leading Micron LPDDR5 DRAM memory, motorola edge+ delivers a smooth, lag-free consumer experience. The new phone takes advantage of the faster data speeds and lower latency of 5G to increase the performance of cloud-based applications such as gaming and streaming entertainment.

"Our collaboration with Motorola on its flagship smartphone highlights the importance that mobile device manufacturers are placing on next-generation memory solutions that provide higher performance and richer consumer experiences," said Dr. Raj Talluri, senior vice president and general manager of the Mobile Business Unit at Micron. "This announcement underscores how the mobile industry is coalescing behind Micron's LPDDR5 for 5G flagship smartphone designs."

Micron and Motorola Deliver Next-Gen Smartphone Features
Whether for photography, gaming, streaming or just browsing the web, consumers demand performance from a flagship smartphone, not delays. Micron's LPDDR5 memory in the motorola edge+ unleashes more features to consumers:
  • Professional photography: The motorola edge+ has one of the most advanced, professional camera systems on a smartphone today. From its 108MP Quad Pixel main sensor (the highest resolution ever in a smartphone) and high-res optical zoom to its industry-leading advanced video stabilization, the phone was designed to capture the moment as users intended. Micron's LPDDR5 memory provides a performance buffer that improves image processing to provide a seamless latency-free user experience.
  • Enhanced gaming: Motorola is introducing a new gaming feature called Moto GameTime on several smartphones this year. The feature automatically blocks interruptions and gives users access to game-enhancing apps and tools. Micron's LPDDR5 memory provides higher bandwidth and lower power consumption, enabling consumers to enjoy an improved mobile gaming experience.
  • Immersive entertainment: Powered by Micron's LPDDR5 memory, Motorola's flagship phone can completely immerse consumers in their favorite movies, TV shows and games. Stretching 6.7 inches and wrapping nearly 90 degrees around both sides, the "endless edge" display delivers breathtaking scenes and enhances the viewing area for better mobile entertainment. Adding to the visual mobile entertainment experience is high-quality audio. The motorola edge+ has two powerful stereo speakers that deliver deeper bass and crisp, clean vocals, even at higher volumes.
"Consumers continue to seek faster, more efficient and higher performing smartphones, and together with Micron, we've created a device that answers these needs," said Jeff Snow, head of Premium & Flagship Product at Motorola. "From a more immersive display and crisper audio to professional-grade image processing, integrating Micron's LPDDR5 memory into the motorola edge+ has allowed us to create a seamless consumer experience that is uniquely its own."

Micron's LPDDR5 DRAM Memory Delivers for the Mobile Industry—And Beyond
Designed to address the growing demand for higher memory performance and lower energy consumption across a wide array of markets beyond just mobile—including automotive, client PCs and networking systems built for 5G and AI applications—Micron's LPDDR5 DRAM memory includes these features and benefits:
  • Bandwidth boosted by more than 50% to accelerate the performance of next-generation flagship smartphone capabilities such as 5G and AI.
  • More than 20% power efficiency as compared to LPDDR4, enabling flagship smartphones to operate longer between charges. As more advanced features are added to medium- and high-end smartphones, the constant demand for battery power continues to increase.
  • Micron's advanced 1y nanometer node in 12 GB capacity and at a data speed of 6.4 Gbps improves overall DRAM design, which enables the next-generation features available on the edge+ smartphone.

In all honesty, this might be a P30 Pro / S10+ lookalike, but Moto's clean clean OS might be worth it.
Its just that 999$ for this is uh...

All of the "flagship" Android phones have now reached these ridiculous prices... at a time when nobody can afford them. In contrast, Apple has just released the iPhone SE at $399, which while hardly cheap, is a much better price for cash-strapped consumers. Hopefully a lot of Android vendors are gonna drop out of the market due to this misstep, resulting in a few vendors that actually make good phones.

To be honest, the flagship-like Android market got many great 250-400$ devices in recent months. Flagships got more expensive, but bang for buck for all markets got better, so im ok with this.
Devices like the Poco X2 show this clearly.

The Poco X2 is only SD730G though. :( I was hoping for it to be SD865 or at least SD855+. Then again, they said it wasn't really a successor to the F1.

Even the new OnePlus 8 Pro is $999 (12 GB RAM, 256 GB storage). :nutkick:

You mean F1, x2 is overpriced much like the rest of them!

This is cool and all, but I find it hardly justifiable to upgrade to any kind of phone given that, for anything but games, phones reached optimal performance like 3 years ago in the 300€ price tag. My Huawei P9 lite still runs as fast as when I bought it.
