A short video clip of a Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone running AndroBench 5 ends with the device achieving some very impressive results. The sequential read rate was measured at 1478.85 MB/s, and a 4 kB random read performance measurement of 37,635.85 IOPS was also recorded. The Galaxy Fold utilizes Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 3.0.

A video showing a Samsung Galaxy Fold’s flash storage being tested on AndroBench 5.0.1 has been shared on Twitter, thanks to Ice universe. The clip starts with a quick look at the Fold’s opened display, before the AndroBench app is selected. After a few moments, there is a close-up of the smartphone’s results, which are as follows:

  • Sequential Read: 1478.85 MB/s
  • Sequential Write: 383.62 MB/s
  • Random Read: 147.01 MB/s; 37,635.85 IOPS (4kB)
  • Random Write: 30.51 MB/s; 7,811.42 IOPS (4kB)
  • SQLite Insert: 2449.37 QPS, 0.83 sec
  • SQLite Update: 3518.98 QPS, 0.57 sec
  • SQLite Delete: 4201.0 QPS, 0.49 sec

The results achieved by the Samsung Galaxy Fold’s UFS 3.0 storage are quite different to the results leaked by the same source in January. However, the device was unnamed in that benchmark run and obviously the rates can vary depending on the individual smartphone. There’s no denying the sequential read and random read rates are very fast, though.

Comments to the tweet have ranged from general amazement and iPhone users remarking that their devices have faster storage write rates to negative impressions about the rather unsightly notch the Galaxy Fold sports in its top right-hand corner when unfolded. But there’s no doubt that UFS 3.0 is a quick step in the right direction over its UFS 2.1 predecessor.
