Samsung starts mass production of the first 1 TB built- in universal smartphone flash storage

Samsung Electronics has announced the world’s first 1TB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) 2.1 for use in next generation mobiles just a few weeks ahead of the Galaxy S10 launch. The Korean company has begun the mass production of 1TB eUFS, which suggests its presence on the upcoming Galaxy S10+. The range topping model of Samsung’s upcoming flagship is also expected to feature 1TB of onboard storage and 12GB of RAM.

Using the same 11.5mm x 13.0mm package as the previous 512GB version, 1TB eUFS 2.1 doubles up the capacity by combining 16 stacked layers of 512Gb V-NAND flash memory and a newly developed proprietary controller. As a result, it’ll allow users to store 260 10-minute videos in 4K UHD (3840×2160) resolution compared to 13 videos of the same size in 64GB eUFS.
The new eUFS offers a sequential read speed of up to 1,000MBps, which is 10 times faster than the speed of a normal microSD card and a random read speed of up to 58,000 IOPS (up to 38 percent more than the 512GB version). Random writes are also faster coming in at up to 50,000 IOPS, which are 500 times faster than a high-performance microSD card (100 IOPS).
“The 1TB eUFS is expected to play a critical role in bringing a more notebook-like user experience to the next generation of mobile devices,” said Cheol Choi, Executive Vice President of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “What’s more, Samsung is committed to assuring the most reliable supply chain and adequate production quantities to support the timely launches of upcoming flagship smartphones in accelerating growth of the global mobile market.”
Samsung further said that it plans to expand the production of its fifth-generation 512Gb V-NAND at its Pyeongtaek plant in Korea throughout the first half of 2019 to meet the demand for 1TB eUFS.
