Samsung has reached a new milestone with regard to smartphone storage.
Samsung says that it’s begun mass production of the industry’s first 1TB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) 2.1. It offers up to 1000MB per second transfer speeds as well as random read speeds that are 38 percent faster than the 512GB version. And with random write speeds that are 500 times faster than a microSD card, this 1TB eUFS 2.1 allows for high-speed continues video capture at 960 frames per second.
“The 1TB eUFS is expected to play a critical role in bringing a more notebook-like user experience to the next generation of mobile devices,” said Cheol Choi, EVP of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “What’s more, Samsung is committed to assuring the most reliable supply chain and adequate production quantities to support the timely launches of upcoming flagship smartphones in accelerating growth of the global mobile market.”
Samsung doesn’t say anything about when we might begin seeing this 1TB of eUFS 2.1 storage appear in smartphones, but it could happen soon. Rumors have suggested that we could see a Galaxy S10 variant with 1TB of built-in storage, and mass production of this 1TB eUFS 2.1 is coming just one month before the GS10’s announcement.
