Samsung has signed a deal with both Apple and LG to supply the two firms with new 20nm LPDDR4 DRAM chips for upcoming smartphones. This agreements cements Samsung’s partnership with Apple to supply some internals for the next iPhone and also most probably for LG’s next flagship phone the LG G4. In a statement from Korea Times it says:

The agreement comes a few months after Samsung, the world’s biggest memory chip supplier, began mass production of the next generation memory chip ― the 8-Gigabit LPDDR4 (low power double data rate) mobile DRAM with 20 nanometers. The so-called LPDDR memory, the most used in mobile devices, is poised to enable a new technological leap for premium smartphones.

The same chips are also rumored to be used in Samsung’s much anticipated Galaxy s6.
