Next year's flagships may use Samsung's new 512GB internal flash storage

Given the timing of the announcement, it is only a matter of time before manufacturers adopt the 512GB eUFS solution into their products especially in mobile devices. Samsung intends to bring this new storage capacity on next-generation devices, possibly the Samsung Galaxy S9.

Samsung is looking to take phone storage to the next level with a new 512GB embedded universal flash storage (eUFS) solution, which the South Korean giant has started mass producing, it announced on Tuesday. After Samsung announced its Exynos 9810, which would no doubt be found running in the upcoming flagship, the company is back with another announcement, which suggests that the smartphone could feature tons of internal storage.

Aside from the increased amount of storage, Samsung has also implemented new power management technology into the new solution in order to minimize its power consumption that comes from having more storage on the solution. They'll be able to store 130 10-minute 4K video clips. Imagine pairing a ton of storage alongside Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC), or Samsung's recently announced Exynos 9810 (Samsung typically uses two SoCs for its flagship phones, tapping its own silicon for models that ship internationally and Qualcomm's hardware for USA variants).

First Industrial Realty Trust, Inc. (FR) Hit 52-Week High
Baird downgraded the stock to "Neutral" rating in Wednesday, January 11 report. (NYSE:FR) on Monday, November 6 with "Buy" rating. Needle moving action has been spotted in Seaspan Corp (SSW) as shares are moving today on volatility 1.18% or 0.07 from the open.

Samsung says the read and write speeds have also improved. Based on the eUFS' rapid random writes, which are approximately 400 times faster than the 100 IOPS speed of a conventional microSD card, mobile users can enjoy seamless multimedia experiences such as high-resolution burst shooting, as well as file searching and video downloading in dual-app viewing mode. The company says that kind of transfer speed is more than eight times faster than a typical microSD card is capable of.

Sequential read and writes reaching up to 860 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 255MB/s respectively. So in case that there will be 512GB Galaxy S9 and Note 9 models, expect to pay a premium for the extra bump in flash memory. According to the company, this is expected to meet the increase in demand for embedded mobile storage, SSDs, and removable memory cards with high density and performance.
