Today, the internal memory of mobile phones does not exceed 128 GB. As expected, Samsung is prepared to increase the storage capacity of the mobile phones in the nearby future.
Today, Samsung has announced that it has begun the mass production of the integrated memory plates, having a capacity of 256 GB. The Korean company will fabricate these new plates using the standard Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0.
If we compare the performance of such memory plates with SATA SSD’s on PCs, the reading speed of information on the new plates will be double than on a PC, but the write speed will be much smaller, reaching a maximum of 250 MB/s. The new memory plates will have 45.000 IOPS, which is more than double the speed found of UFS memory of the 128 GB chips.
Samsung believes that the new 256 GB plates will be able to store 4K movies, and with the help of the USB 3.0 interface, the speed with which information will be transmitted on future phones will be much higher.
It is not known when and on what models Samsung plans to implement the new chips, but since the manufacturing process has started, we might find out which terminals will support the new chips somewhere in autumn or even winter next year.
