Samsung Has Begun Production of 512GB Flash Storage For Next Gen Phones

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 Samsung 512GB eUFS provides the best embedded storage solution for next-generation premium smartphones by overcoming potential limitations in system performance that can occur with the use of micro SD cards", said Jaesoo Han, EVP of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung announced it has begun mass producing the industry's first 512GB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS). Samsung is utilizing their own 64-layer 512-gigabit (Gb) V-NAND chips for these, which will give you speedy copy and write speeds even at this size.

MicroSD storage seems to be the main target with this innovation, as Samsung suggest embedded storage is more stable and and less limiting than current external storage cards used in mobile devices. Will the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy Note 9 come with 512GB of memory? Nothing is impossible these days. So as memory extremes increase on the high end we may see more phones with 256GBs of storage too. Although only claims for the moment, Samsung said it will be able to store 130 10 minute 4K Ultra HD video clips, ten times as many as a 64 GB eUFS. The devices are 64-layer 512GB V-NAND chips and have twice the number of cells as Samsung's previous controller chips and storage. Compared to a 64GB chip that could only hold 13 of these videos, that's a massive increase. That translates to being able to transfer a 5GB Full HD video clip to an SSD in about six seconds, which is about eight times faster than a typical microSD card.

As for raw performance, Samsung's 512GB eUFS boasts sequential read and write speeds of up to 860MB/s and 255MB/s, respectively. No, not really. That's why Samsung says it is going to steadily increase its production volume for both 512 GB and 256 GB V-NAND chips.

Would you still be interested in picking up the Galaxy S9 if it shipped with 500GB of internal flash storage instead of a microSD slot?
