Samsung has once again proved that it is the undisputed king for new technological developments. They have announced the new massive 1TB Storage Chip designed specifically for smartphones, and has already begun mass producing them in it’s manufacturing plants. These chips will be used in the upcoming generation of Android and other smartphones defining a new age of storage crossing the 1TB mark.
Currently, the basic handsets have a maximum internal storage capacity of 64GB which is way lower than what Samsung is promising to bring here. The 1 TB capacity is almost 10 times more than this and will offer blazing speeds in terms of performance in the future smartphones. The company is promising that users will be able to get the same storage experience as that of a “premium Notebook PC” and they won’t need to use any external memory cards.
Cheol Choi, executive vice president of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics said:
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. 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 had added a 512GB storage capacity back in Galaxy Note 9, which was the previous best from this Korean firm. Speaking about the overall performance of this 1TB chip Samsung explained this on their Newsroom post:
The 1TB eUFS also possesses exceptional speed, allowing users to transfer large amounts of multimedia content in significantly reduced time. At up to 1,000 megabytes per second (MB/s), the new eUFS features approximately twice the sequential read speed of a typical 2.5-inch SATA solid state drive (SSD). This means that 5GB-sized full HD videos can be offloaded to an NVMe SSD in as fast as five seconds, which is 10 times the speed of a typical microSD card.
