The evolution for portable storage has come a long way from the very first smartphone featuring only a few hundred megabytes of storage to the latest smartphones averaging out at 256 gigabytes with the upper limit set to the 512-gigabyte threshold. Samsung out of all is keen on innovating the modern concept of smartphones pushing the limits to the extreme. The upcoming S10 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2019 and is expected to set the tone for smartphones coming out this year.
Samsung Electronics today introduced the industry’s first 1TB flash storage chip fit for upcoming smartphones. Storage is one of the core set of features considered by consumers when purchasing a new smartphone. Throughout the years’ many manufacturers have tried to find alternative solutions to unlimited storage on the go, with cloud storage acting as a catalyst for innovation during those years. The idea, however, couldn’t work due to the requirement of a stable internet connection in order to access the cloud. Now, the initiative itself isnt a total failure, in fact, a wide variety of services rely on it and Apple, Google all use cloud storage to maximize efficiency on modern smartphones.
The 1TB eUFS would bring notebook grade performance in the palm of your hand. Not only that but the 1TB eUFS possesses immense superiority in terms of performance and speed over the previous generation. Moreover, smartphone users will be able to hold over 260 10 minute videos in native 4K over a measly 13 which was possible until now. The read speeds have also bumped up to 1000 MB/s almost twice as fast as traditional SATA SSDs. Furthermore, the random read speed has increased by up to 38% over the 512GB version, clocking in at up to 58,000 IOPS. These numbers are 500 times better than the speeds possible on micro SD cards.
It is certain that we would see more phones equipped with 1TB of storage and won’t require any sort of additional storage options.
