Ready to never have to worry about deleting data off your phone? The annoucement that Samsung’s 1TB eUFS technology for smartphones has entered production is something you have to check out.
According to Samsung, this is the first 1 terabyte embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS), with enough capacity to store 260 10-minute videos in 4K. To put this into perspective, a flagship with 64 GB of storage of today can only hold 13 videos of this size.
Samsung also pushed the limits in terms of transfer speeds. With a 1,000 megabyte per second sequential read speed, the new 1 TB eUFS is twice as fast as a regular SSD and significantly faster than the previous 512 GB model.
“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,” said Cheol Choi of Samsung in a press release. Indeed, with this threshold overcome, the next generation of smartphones will have the same storage capacity as a notebook.
And, for those concerned about smartphone form factors, the 1 TB eUFS is the same size (11.5 mm x 13.0 mm) as its predecessor, so more storage doesn’t mean more bulk.
Because the new storage entered production at the beginning of this year, you should expect to see huge storage capacities in smartphones extremely soon.
