Samsung Electronics announced today that it has begun mass production of the industry’s first 1TB embedded universal flash memory (AUS) 2.1, the official said that smartphones will soon enjoy the same as advanced notebooks storage.
Cheol Choi, executive vice president of Samsung Electronics Memory Sales and Marketing, said. “The 1TB eUFS is expected to play a key role in bringing more notebook-like user experiences to next-generation mobile devices,” “More importantly, Samsung is committed to ensuring the most reliable supply chain and sufficient production to support the upcoming Launched the flagship smartphone to accelerate the growth of the global mobile market.”
In the same package size (11.5mm x 13.0mm), the 1TB eUFS solution doubles the capacity of the previous 512GB version, bringing together 16 stacked Samsung 512Gb V-NAND flash and newly developed proprietary flash masters together. Smartphone users can now store 260 10-minute videos in 4K UHD (3840×2160) format, while the 64GB eUFS, which is widely used in many high-end smartphones, can store 13 videos of the same size.
Samsung said that the 1TB eUFS also has excellent speed, allowing users to transfer large amounts of multimedia content in a very short time. The new eUFS speeds up to 1,000MB/s per second, which is twice the continuous read speed of mainstream 2.5-inch SATA Solid State Drives (SSDs). Random reads up to 58,000 IOPS and random writes up to 50,000 IOPS.
Samsung plans to expand its fifth-generation 512Gb V-NAND production at its Pyeongtaek plant in South Korea in the first half of 2019 to fully meet the global mobile device manufacturer’s demand for 1TB eUFS.
