Just in time for Its launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Possible unveiling of a premium foldable Galaxy F smartphone, Samsung has announced that it has Started mass producing eUFS embedded flash storage chips with a capacity of 1TB.
This will allow for a massive increase in the storage capabilities of smartphones and other compact devices, without the need for removable memory cards. This is twice the density of Samsung’s previous top-end 512GB eUFS solution. The business anticipates strong need and will market its chips into other smartphone manufacturers in addition to using them in its own flagship products.
The 1TB chip uses the eUFS 2.1 regular and promises consecutive read speeds of up to 1000MBps, which is just under twice as far as average SATA SSDs utilized for notebook and desktop PCs. Random write and read speeds are claimed to be around 58,000 IOPS and 50,000 IOPS respectively, which the organization says is 500x quicker than that which today’s high performance microSD cards may handle. These are all improvements over the business’s own 512GB capacity eUFS, released in November 2017. Samsung points out that high-speed storage is essential if writing huge amounts of information continuously, such as when recording video at 960fps or with multiple cameras simultaneously.
The very first UFS chips that Samsung developed had a capacity of 128GB, and were established in January 2015. Since then, the company has periodically doubled capacities whilst raising rates. The business also tried to establish a removable UFS card standard in 2016 to replace microSD cards, but it never caught on.
These new chips quantify exactly the exact same 11.5millimeter x 13mm as the previous generation, allowing them to fit into smartphones at which each bit of space is valuable. The leap in capacity is possible thanks to Samsung’s ability to stack 16 of its 5th Generation V-NAND dies. Each die has 96 levels of 3D stacked flash memory cells. The business also touts a fresh in-house controller.
Samsung was among the first manufacturers to launch a smartphone with 512GB of storage, as it unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Notice 9$58,900 (Inspection ) in August 2018. At the moment, the company also touted the ability to add a 512GB microSD card for a total of 1TB of storage. The company is promising to increase its production capacity throughout the first half of the year to support customers who wish to place these chips in their next-generation flagship phones.
