Samsung Starts Producing 256GB Storage Chips For Mobile Devices, Note6 WinksBy cheatmaster 04:07 Sun, 01 Aug 2021 Comments
In February, Samsung introduced 256GB storage chips for mobile devices and now it has started production of assumed chips.
Those chips utilize the latest UFS standard and will rival SATA-based SSDs that are used in computers - Samsung claims 850MB/s read speeds and 260MB/s writes (sequential).
Obviously, it's too late for the S7, but perhaps the recent Galaxy Note6 can create utilize of these high power chips? It doesn't seem likely, now that Samsung re-introduced the microSD slot. After all, a 200GB microSD can be had for $80 ($60 on a fine day).
Of course, they don't have anywhere near the speed of UFS memory and some current devices even boast 256GB storage, so maybe there's room for premium devices for digital packrats.
