Samsung going to introduce Smartphone have 256 GB storage capacity
Samsung has announced that the company is going to introduce the first 256GB embedded memory module for smartphones. Samsung has announced that it’s mass producing 256GB embedded chips, double what it had last year, using the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0 standard. This latest advancement in internal storage is based on Universal Flash Storage 2.0 for next-gen smartphones, just in case 128GB wasn’t enough.
Expandable storage has always been a bandage on a much greater problem plaguing Android phones: the cost of high capacity flash memory was too high and the size was too bulky to include in older smartphones. Plus, expandable memory has never performed nearly as well as internal UFS memory.
Although Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgradable in Android 7.0 (Android N) supports a new adoptive memory feature that basically treats external memory as internal memory, neither of Android’s two biggest vendors, LG or Samsung, support the feature in their new smartphones. What’s more is the embedded modules can even exceed speeds that of typical SATA-connected SSD inside a desktop PC. Samsung has built the chips on the company’s advanced V-NAND technology with a combined high-performance controller, handling up to 45,000 input and 40,000 output operations per second.
When we talk about smartphone performance, we typically discuss its CPU and graphics solution. NAND flash performance is just as important as these factors, however, and it’s an area where smartphone manufacturers often offer very different experiences. I love high capacity things. So when Samsung announced it’s producing 256 GB flash storage that can be used in mobile devices, I swooned. The memory is two times faster than the previous generation of Universal Flash Storage (UFS) memory, meaning that phones will not only have greater storage capacities, but also breeze reading and writing operations.
