Samsung Battery Packs

Samsung has unveiled two new battery packs with powerful performance using recycled materials. The launch, scheduled for the 19th, introduces the PD Battery Pack 20,000 mAh and the PD Wireless Charging Battery Pack 10,000 mAh. Both of these battery incorporate 30% UL-certified recycled plastic in their design, marking a stride in reducing carbon emissions.

The ‘PD Battery Pack 20,000 mAh’ offers a high capacity for charging, with a maximum output of 45W and three USB-C ports, allowing for simultaneously charging multiple devices. However, the actual charging speed may vary based on several factors, including the devices connected and charging conditions.

On the other hand, the ‘PD Wireless Charging Battery Pack 10,000 mAh’ provides the convenience of wireless charging, along with a wired charging capability of up to 25W. It comes with two USB-C ports, making it possible to charge up to three devices at once when combining wired and wireless charging.

Samsung LPDDR5X DRAM

The LPDDR6 market is expected to bloom as early as next year, as the new on-device AI memory is on the way with the latest LPDDR6 standard finalization taking place in Q3 2024. If the standard is confirmed in the third quarter, LPDDR will secure a new standard for the first time in five years.

Going toward the details, the International Semiconductor Standard Organization (JEDEC) recently held discussions on the next-generation mobile RAM standard. The meeting proceeded with the finalization process to finalize the LPDDR6 standard.

An official in the semiconductor industry said,

  • “We have held various discussions to confirm the LPDDR6 standard specification,” and it will be released in the third quarter of this year.”

To be mentioned, the JEDEC is a private organization that establishes semiconductor standards, that is, sizes and specifications, and more than 60 people from memory, system semiconductor, and design asset (IP) companies participated in this Lisbon meeting.

Furthermore, the LPDDR6 standard will be established with a focus on improving data processing performance as the demand for on-device AI to perform large-scale AI calculations on smartphones, laptops, and tablet PCs is rapidly increasing. In addition, the power consumption standard will also be improved.

However, once the LPDDR6 standard is confirmed, major memory manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix are expected to begin commercializing their products in earnest.

Samsung Chromebook AI Key

Samsung is reportedly working on a new Chromebook that will feature a special key for accessing AI features. The device, codenamed Xol, is expected to be powered by Intel’s Raptor Lake processors and have a traditional clamshell design.

According to the Chrome Unboxed, Xol will be the first Chromebook besides Google’s Pixelbook series to have an Assistant key. This suggests that Google is enhancing its AI capabilities on ChromeOS, especially with Gemini.

However, Xol is not likely to be a Google product, as Samsung developers have contributed most of the code changes for it. Xol will probably be a Samsung Chromebook, similar to the Galaxy Chromebook Go from 2021, and expected to launch this year.

The Assistant key on Xol could also be a Gemini key, as Google has been testing Gemini on some Chromebook Plus devices. Samsung and Google may be working together to bring Gemini to more ChromeOS devices, starting with Xol.
