As hype for the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 increases, it seems like the first details regarding the OnePlus 6T’s successor, most likely the OnePlus 7, have started to chime in.
UFS 3.0 Flash Is Coming To The OnePlus 7, Tipster Suggests
The trusty tipster from China, Ice Universe, has just tipped off some details regarding the OnePlus 7’s storage, suggesting that the next flagship from OnePlus would most likely feature the newly-introduced UFS 3.0 storage standard under its clamshell.
After showcasing some impressive numbers regarding the alleged new flash storage medium, Ice Universe suggested users look for the new storage in the next OnePlus device.
For those who don’t know, we recently reported that the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup could feature the newly-introduced flash storage medium after Samsung announced their new Exynos 9820 SoC. While Samsung had been clear about the introduction of the new standard, Qualcomm, on the other hand, hasn’t been very vocal about their flash storage standards.
As many would expect, the next-gen OnePlus 7 would most likely feature the Snapdragon 855 SoC. And since development for the OnePlus 7 is most likely underway, there’s a good chance OnePlus may opt to jump in onto the new standard as soon as they could to keep up with the status quo. However, the linking doesn’t end there. If the Snapdragon 855 actually supports the new hardware, there’s an even better chance that Samsung would include the new storage medium on the Galaxy S10 lineup of devices to keep their Qualcomm and Exynos variants in parity.
If true, OnePlus could potentially join Samsung in the race towards the next-generation of mobile flash storage technology thanks to its blazing fast read and write speeds. However, as expected, many users wouldn’t be able to experience the full speed of the device other than the fact that devices that feature UFS 3.0 might be a bit more responsive than the current UFS 2.1 storage standard.
Where this would be a killer would definitely be for users who always prefer to record videos in 4K, are active in content production and care about getting some serious would done while on the go. After all, all the 23.2Gbps reads need some justice.
There’s a ton of hype that OnePlus has to meet later this quarter with the launch of the OnePlus 7, especially at a time when Samsung and Huawei are done with their Galaxy S10 and P30 launches. There’s a ton of leaks still to come regarding the OnePlus 7 and there’s a good chance that the device may release in at the end of the first half of 2019, eventually allowing our speculation regarding the Xiaomi Mi 9’s release window to slip through.
