Is this not odd? Is their any reason of buying external memory card?. Samsung is taking phone storage to the another level with a new 512GB embedded universal flash storage (eUFS) solution.
As the target have been drawn, this means that the present 256gb that is available on Samsung Galaxy s8 and Galaxy Note 8 memory will be doubled. Still no word on when the chips will be available in market but we are looking positive to see it in their upcoming flagship.
OMG! New Samsung Flagship to Feature 512GB internal Storage
Utilising Samsung’s latest 64-layer 512-gigabit V-NAND chips (eight of them), the new 512GB eUFS package provides record storage capacity and faster processing speeds, the company claims. Samsung claims that the new eUFS solution will enable a flagship smartphone to store approximately 130 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160) video clips of a 10-minute duration which is about a tenfold increase over a 64GB eUFS which allows storing about 13 of the same-sized video clips.
“The 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND’s advanced circuit design and new power management technology in the 512GB eUFS’ controller minimize the inevitable increase in energy consumed, which is particularly noteworthy since the new 512GB eUFS solution contains twice the number of cells compared to a 256GB eUFS. In addition, the 512GB eUFS’ controller chip speeds up the mapping process for converting logical block addresses to those of physical blocks,” the company says in its statement.
A boost in overall read and write performance is also expected. Claimed sequential read and write speeds of up to 860 megabytes per second (MBps) and 255MBps respectively mean that bigger, high-resolution files can be transferred in lesser time than before. On random operations, the 512GB eUFS solution can read 42,000 IOPS and write 40,000 IOPS, which is over 400 times faster than a regular microSD card.
Currently, Samsung has confirmed nothing about which devices would be getting the new 512GB chips but we can assume that the phone maker’s next flagship phone Galaxy S9 will have 512GB internal storage as an option.
