Samsung Touts First Embedded 512 Gigabyte Flash Storage for Mobile Devices

 Samsung's new eUFS to boost smartphone storage to 512GB

Samsung's new eUFS to boost smartphone storage to 512GB

Jaesoo Han, Executive Vice President of Memory Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics says the following about company's vision in paving the way for mobile phones to exhibit higher levels of internal storage. Imagine pairing a ton of storage alongside Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC), or Samsung's recently announced Exynos 9810 (Samsung typically uses two SoCs for its flagship phones, tapping its own silicon for models that ship internationally and Qualcomm's hardware for U.S. variants). The company just announced it had begun mass production of the world's first 512GB embedded universal flash storage (eUFS).

MicroSD storage seems to be the main target with this innovation, as Samsung suggest embedded storage is more stable and and less limiting than current external storage cards used in mobile devices.

On a side note, Samsung also announced plans to increase production of its 64-layer 512 Gb V-NAND chips as well as 256 Gb V-NAND chips to meet growing demand for mobile storage, SSDs and other products.

"The new Samsung 512GB eUFS provides the best embedded storage solution for next-generation premium smartphones by overcoming potential limitations in system performance that can occur with the use of micro SD cards". Simply put, Samsung's new storage solution is able to stay power efficient even though it contains twice the number of cells compared to a 256GB eUFS. Samsung claims that the 512GB chip can hold approximately 130 ten minute 4K Ultra HD videos, which is good news for all the phones that come with 4K video recording capability. So as memory extremes increase on the high end we may see more phones with 256GBs of storage too.

Texas manhunt underway for suspect in fatal cop shooting
He then was accused of evading arrest, aggravated assault against a public servant and reckless driving in 2017. Words of condolences and signs of support are pouring out from law enforcement agencies, and Gov.

The new 512GB UFS device consists of eight 64-layer 512-gigabit V-NAND chips stacked together with a controller chip.

It also boasts a random read speed of 42,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) and a write speed of 40,000 IOPS. That's eight times faster than a microSD card and equivalent to transferring 5GB of HD video to an SSD in six seconds.

Performance-wise, you can expect up to 860MB/s and 255MB/s sequential read and write speeds, respectively.

As we don't know how long the firm's been holding onto the technology, it's tough to say whether it will make the cut - but if it was on the assembly line before the Galaxy S9 entered production at the beginning of last month, it could very well be on board.
