Samsung recently announced the first production of a 1 terabyte eUFS flash memory for smartphones. The Korean company is now bringing the capabilities of telephones closer to those of top-of-the-line laptops.
After its Galaxy Note 9 with 512 GB of memory, Samsung Electronics has just started a new production. The brand new embedded universal file storage (eUFS) memory with a capacity of 1 terabyte for future smartphones. The storage capacity will be comparable to that of a high-end laptop computer. There will be no need to pair the phone with additional memory card.
The 512GB (11.5mm x 13mm) size, however, doubles its storage capacity by combining 16 layers of stacked cells from Samsung’s most advanced flash memory (the V-NAND 512GB), with a new proprietary controller. Samsung will store 260 10-minute videos in 4K UHD format (3840 x 2160) for 260 videos of the same size for 64 GB eUFS integrated in current smartphones. But also a speed ten times faster than that of a conventional microSD card.
In addition, Cheaol Choi the Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Memory at Samsung Electronics said that “Samsung is committed to providing the most reliable supply chain and sufficient production quantities. The company intend to support the timely launch of the upcoming flagship smartphones to accelerate the growth of the global mobile phone market.” The multinational electronics conglomerate also plans to expand production of its fifth-generation V-NAND 512 Gb during the first half of 2019 to meet the demand for 1TB eUFS systems.
