Samsung officially announces mass production of 1 TB eUFS smartphone storage
Samsung has begun mass production on a solution for anyone who ever wanted more than 250 10-minute UHD-quality videos on their phone’s internal storage: the 1 TB eUFS 2.1. The company has offered details about the new product with its massive one terabyte of space in a newsroom article. The post offers some very interesting facts and figures about the component that will give future Samsung smartphone releases a 1 TB option, as is expected from one of the upcoming Galaxy S10 Plus variants:
- It can store 260 4K 10-minute videos
- It can reach a sequential read speed of 1000 MB/s
- It can reach a random read speed of 58,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second)
- It comes in the same package size as Samsung’s previous 512 GB solution
- It can make your friends with 64 GB eUFS solutions in their flagship smartphones green with envy
Unsurprisingly, Samsung has boasted about the 1 TB eUFS in the news post, claiming the new solution will make smartphones lucky enough to wield it comparable to a “premium notebook PC”. There’s not much to object to in the company’s statement: If the top-end Galaxy S10 model does come with the expected 12 GB RAM, 1 TB storage, and all the other rumored bells and whistles, then it is more than comparable to a premium laptop.
Samsung expects strong demand from other smartphone manufacturers for the 1 TB eUFS solution, and it’s very likely the company’s expectations will be met. Storage space is one of the key areas where OEMs often try to outdo each other, and Samsung’s latest news could spell the end of flagship smartphone owners requiring microSD-card storage expansion.
