Samsung prepares to double smartphone storage



Samsung is gearing up for a massive shift in smartphone storage capacity. It announced this week that it had begun mass producing the industry’s first one-terabyte (TB) embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) 2.1, “for use in next-generation mobile applications”.

Samsung Electronics introduced the first UFS solution, the 128-gigabyte (GB) eUFS, four years ago, and has since led the move from standard storage on a handset being 16GB or 32GB, to its current high-end of 512GB.  The new version will double the current maximum storage space of high-end smartphones.

“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, executive vice president of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics. 

“What’s more, Samsung is committed to assuring the most reliable supply chain and adequate production quantities to support the timely launches of upcoming flagship smartphones in accelerating growth of the global mobile market.”

This appears to be a clear signal that the new Samsung Galaxy S10 and its siblings, due to be launched in San Francisco on 20 February, will have he option of up to 1TB of memory.

Read on for the detailed specs and performance of the eUFS 2.1.
