Samsung starts manufacturing 512GB eUFS chips for mobile devices

Today, the company announced that it started production of 512GB eUFS flash storage chips, designed for use in phones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

If Samsung does offer 256GB and 512GB editions of its flagship phones next year, they'll certainly be more expensive.

This chip will give upcoming flagship Samsung phones unparalleled storage capacity. The obvious advantage of built-in storage is that it's significantly faster than expandable memory.

Users can save 130 files of 10-minute 4K Ultra HD videos with the new eUFS while only 13 of the same-sized videos are allowed with a 64 GB eUFS adopted on existing smartphones.

With so much next-generation storage potentially on board the S9, presumably there's no need for a microSD port to add even more - it's a big step up from 64GB and even 128GB, and means we're unlikely to see the same kind of outcry as there was when the microSD card slot was pulled from the Galaxy S6.

Increasing sizes of internal storage is a good thing. So in case that there will be 512GB Galaxy S9 and Note 9 models, expect to pay a premium for the extra bump in flash memory. Samsung says the chip consists of eight 64-layer 512GB V-NAND chips, but what's interesting is that although it doubles the storage and density of Samsung's 256GB chip, it takes up the same amount of physical space.

Alabama's Jeremy Pruitt set to take Tennessee gig
Reports linked Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy and Purdue's Jeff Brohm to Tennessee's vacancy, but both stayed with their teams. Before that he served as the defensive coordinator at Georgia from 2014-15 and at Florida State in 2013.

On a related note, Samsung intends to steadily increase an aggressive production volume for its 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND chips, in addition to expanding its 256Gb V-NAND production.

Phones with the new chip will feature increased speed and performance as well.

What do you think of these new chips?

It also provides outstanding storage capacity and performance. Sequential read speeds reach as high as 860 MB/s and write speeds are up to 255 MB/s. Samsung says that the chips will transfer a 5 GB video clip to an SSD in about six seconds.

This seems to suggest Samsung is keen on equipping plenty of products with lots and lots of storage.
