In three weeks, the Mobile World Congress opens in Barcelona, and here Samsung will present the company’s first 1TB storage chip for smartphones.
The new storage chip is fully developed and ready for mass production, and Samsung is expected to initially use it in the Galaxy S10 +, which Samsung is expected to present at Mobile World Congress in late February.
Apparently, the new eUFS chip has the same physical size as Samsung’s current 512GB storage chip.
According to Samsung, the new flash-based 1TB chip could both write and read data much faster than previous chips.
“1TB eUFS is expected to play an important role in creating a more notebook-like user experience in the next generation of mobile devices,” Samsung said.
Consumer expectations and demands for smartphones storage are steadily increasing: they expect more and more space as apps, games, videos and other space-consuming content are used more for more.
With 1TB storage, a smartphone will accommodate more than 18,000 hours of music in MP3 format – more than two years of continuous streaming.
If you are in video format in super format, 1TB will be able to hold almost a day’s video in 4K format –
Samsung is a major supplier of chips to other smartphone manufacturers, who are expected to be very interested in the new 1TB storage option.
The company therefore plans to increase the production of the chip, which is manufactured at Samsung’s factory in Pyeingtaek, South Korea.
