Galaxy S9 Could Sport 512GB of Internal Memory as Samsung Announces First-Ever UFS Storage for Next-Gen Phones
Samsungjust announced that it has begun mass production of a 512GB embedded Universal Flash Storage memory chip for mobile devices, meaning that your next Galaxy phone could have seemingly endless storage.
As the saying goes, you can never have too much storage space on your phone. Although only claims for the moment, Samsung said it will be able to store 130 10 minute 4K Ultra HD video clips, ten times as many as a 64 GB eUFS. That sort of content is becoming more popular as sharper displays and enhanced cameras are included on smartphones. Even though there is no mention of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9, it's possible that this new module will find its way into both or either phone.
According to Samsung's Jaesoo Han, executive vice president of Memory Sales & Marketing, "By assuring an early, stable supply of this advanced embedded storage, Samsung is taking a big step forward in contributing to timely launches of next-generation mobile devices by mobile manufacturers around the world".
The new 512GB UFS device consists of eight 64-layer 512-gigabit V-NAND chips stacked together with a controller chip. The 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND's advanced circuit design and new power management technology in the 512GB eUFS' controller minimize the inevitable increase in energy consumed, which is particularly noteworthy since the new 512GB eUFS solution contains twice the number of cells compared to a 256GB eUFS.

Soon after the attack, army along with additional reinforcement launched a cordon and search operation to nab the assailants. However, an official of the Indian army claimed that the martyred youth were killed in an exchange of fire.
For the other part of the equation-random performance-Samsung rates the new eUFS for up to 42,000 IOPS for random reads and up to 40,000 IOPS for random writes.
As for speed, Samsung says that the 512GB eUFS is able to offer read and write speeds of up to 860MB/s and 255MB/s, respectively. That means you only need about six seconds to transfer an HD video clip to an SSD, Samsung says.
Would you still be interested in picking up the Galaxy S9 if it shipped with 500GB of internal flash storage instead of a microSD slot?
They 64-layer V-NAND chips should also do well in other embedded devices, which are expected to soon proliferate as 5G networks create possibilities for sophisticated devices in a great many locations. Let us know down in the comments.
