  • Samsung 512GB eUFS

According to the official press release, "Samsung intends to steadily increase an aggressive production volume for its 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND chips, in addition to expanding its 256Gb V-NAND production". The news came just days after the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge were unveiled both of which incorporated UFS 2.0 onboard storage in either 32GB or 64GB capacities.

The new flash storage (eUFS) will feature Samsung's 512-gigabit V-NAND chip and will overcome current limitations posed by the use of MicroSD cards. However, that barrier has now been broken as Samsung today has officially announced its new 512GB embedded UFS solution. Therefore, it doubles the density of Samsung's previous 48-layer V-NAND-based 256GB eUFS, and Samsung notes that it does so in the same amount of space as the 256GB package. 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. Using UFS proved to be the right decision for Samsung, as it achieved much better performance than eMMC, which was predominantly used by Android phones at the time. Also, Sammy says the new drive will be able to save an impressive 130 files of 10-minute UHD (4K) videos.

Samsung says the read and write speeds have also improved. The 512 GB chip stacks eight of the aforementioned NAND dies and is speced for up to 860 MB/s sequential read speeds as well as up to 255 MB/s sequential write speeds, which is in line with the company's 256 GB eUFS device launched in 2016. However, if the company starts using this storage module, we may be facing the prospects of losing the microSD card slot. No precise timeline of when these chips can be expected in mobile devices has been disclosed, beyond it being meant for upcoming flagship smartphones and tablets.

Two goals from Jesse Lingard and one from Antonio Valencia earned United the victory - Mourinho's first away against a top-six club since he arrived at Old Trafford.

Reading into this statement, one might possibly construe that the eUFS solution might appear inside a variant of Samsung's next top-tier handset, the yet to be announced Galaxy S9.

To maximize the performance and energy efficiency of the new 512GB eUFS, Samsung has introduced a new set of proprietary technologies.

This time it's named "upcoming flagship smartphones and tablets" as the ideal application.
