Samsung Begins Mass Production Of Industry First 512GB Embedded Storage

Share

According to Samsung, the new 512GB storage chip will stick to the same physical size as the current and biggest option available, 256GB.

There are a number of reasons why Samsung would want to rush to bake the 500GB+ non-removable chip into the Galaxy S9. However, that barrier has now been broken as Samsung today has officially announced its new 512GB embedded UFS solution.

The chip is constructed out of eight 64-layer V-NAND chips, the same memory chips that make up Samsung's 256GB chip, and a controller chip that translates commands into actions.

Some tablets, including the iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface tablets, already offer 512GB of space for media content. Samsung says its new solution slims down the chips so that the increased storage capacity takes up the same amount of space as a 256GB chip would.

The new solution will provide a huge boost for storage on flagship phones, as well as another product for the strong performing division of Samsung to continue growth.

Even though Samsung is most well known for its flagship phones, it has a massive component business as well. Now, Samsung Electronics has announced that it has begun mass production of the industry's first 512GB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) solution for use in next-generation mobile devices. 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.

Sequential read and writes reaching up to 860 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 255MB/s respectively.

Samsung says that it has introduced a new set of proprietary technologies to maximize performance and energy efficiency. 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. However, if the company starts using this storage module, we may be facing the prospects of losing the microSD card slot. Samsung did mention on its press release that the 512GB eUFS will be used for its "upcoming flagship smartphones and tablets".
