Samsung Starts Production of First 512GB UFS Package for Mobile Devices

Samsung starts cranking out 512GB eUFS storage

But come next year, we should see that number double as Samsung has announced that it has begun manufacturing 512GB embedded storage for phones. By comparison, most smartphones today - including the iPhone X - are capped at 256GB of storage.

If you can't imagine using that much storage Samsung also announced that it'll expand production of its 256GB chips too. "For example, the new high-capacity eUFS enables a flagship smartphone to store approximately 130 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160) video clips of a 10-minute duration*, which is about a tenfold increase over a 64GB eUFS which allows storing only about 13 of the same-sized video clips". That sort of content is becoming more popular as sharper displays and enhanced cameras are included on smartphones.

"The new Samsung 512GB eUFS provides the best embedded storage solution for next-generation premium smartphones by overcoming potential limitations in system performance that can occur with the use of micro SD cards".

MicroSD storage seems to be the main target with this innovation, as Samsung suggest embedded storage is more stable and and less limiting than current external storage cards used in mobile devices.

High storage phones models now come with 128GB or 256GB of memory, but Samsung's new 512GB chip is double or quadruple that. The chips consist of eight 64-layer 512 GB V-NAND chips and a controller chip.

While the moon is always a handsome sight in the sky, occasionally skywatchers are treated to a special "supermoon". A Super Moon is when the moon appears brighter and closer in the sky because its orbit takes it closest to Earth.

The 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND's advanced circuit design and new power management technology will potentially help the Galaxy S9 to exhibit better battery life.

The Samsung 512GB eUFS also features strong read and write performance.

Sequential read and writes reaching up to 860 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 255MB/s respectively.

Samsung didn't say which of its upcoming new phones will get the 512GB eUFS first. Compare that to the 100 IOPS that conventional MicroSD cards read and you have about a 400x improvement in performance. No, not really. That's why Samsung says it is going to steadily increase its production volume for both 512 GB and 256 GB V-NAND chips.
