Samsung publicized that the company will initiate mass production of first 256GB UFS (Universal Flash Storage) 2.0 standard for its high-end mobiles. The advanced chip will consume less power and it will utilize two lines to transfer data at a scorching 850MB per second.
Recently Samsung launched Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge but the chip was not found so we expect that latest chip will come in next flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge. Drivers of UFS chip are faster than an SSD (Solid-State Drives) which can be found in PCs competent of chronological characters of up to 260MB which is roughly two to three times faster than high-performance micro SD cards.
It means that the chip can transfer a 5GB file in about 12 seconds. Executive Vice President, Memory Sales and Marketing of Samsung Electronics, Joo Sun Choi states that “By offering high density UFS memory that is almost twice as fast as a SATA SSD for PCs, we will contribute to a pattern shift within the mobile data storage market. We are determined to push the competitive edge in finest storage line-ups – OEM NVMe SSDs, external SSDs, and UFS – by moving forcefully to improve performance and capacity in all three markets.
Thus the company has definitely reserved something exciting for its next flagship which we will see in 2017.
