Samsung is about to help the whole of the mobile market, as it readies a new memory chip for handsets.

More speed, less power, smaller size
What will this extra memory give us? Well the latest crop of handsets, with their quad-core processors, are lightning quick, but Samsung claims it "will help the market to deliver advanced devices that are faster, lighter and provide longer battery life than today's mobile devices."
The new chip is reportedly 20% thinner than previous 2GB offerings, which will allow handset manufacturers to continue producing incredibly slender devices, able slide into the skinniest of jeans with ease.
Samsung predicts the new memory will begin to ship later this year, which means we could see handsets sporting the new RAM by Christmas, but 2013 is really the time when this technology will be fully implemented.
