Samsung launches new 512 GB eUFS memory chips for mobile devices

Samsung 512GB eUFS embedded universal flash storage

If you can't imagine using that much storage Samsung also announced that it'll expand production of its 256GB chips too. Android benefits from the ability to install an external memory card in most devices to provide additional storage but that could be a thing of the past thanks to the internal storage capacity in Samsungs new chip hitting 512GB.

Samsung has just announced that they are now manufacturing new 512-gigabyte embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) for flagship smartphones and mobile devices coming next year. The entire package consists of eight 64-layer 512GB V-NAND chips and single controller chip, and although it's packing twice the storage capacity as Samsung's 48-layer 256GB chip, it's physically the same size.

"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, executive vice president of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics. This year, flagships have moved to the UFS 2.1 standard which brings even higher storage performance. Nothing is impossible these days.

The new solution is also really fast, allowing users to "store approximately 130 [10 minute] 4K Ultra HD video clips", a feat that might make the experience very sluggish on current storage solutions.


The 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND's advanced circuit design and new power management technology will potentially help the Galaxy S9 to exhibit better battery life.

High storage phones models now come with 128GB or 256GB of memory, but Samsung's new 512GB chip is double or quadruple that.

The UFS devices are said to be supreme in speed, reading up to 860 MB/s and writing at 255MB/s. That means you only need about six seconds to transfer an HD video clip to an SSD, Samsung says.

Samsung didn't say which of its upcoming new phones will get the 512GB eUFS first. 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. Tell us your thoughts down in the comments.
