Samsung is known for its great smartphones, but also for its internal advancements in the same field. The company is said to be gearing up for the launch of its upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 series, after the launch of the Galaxy M10 and the Galaxy M20. Last year, with the Galaxy Note 9, the company offered storage up to 1TB with 512GB internal and 512GB external support. However, new reports suggest that Samsung could be doubling up on that number for its upcoming smartphones.
Samsung 1TB flash storage chip
In an official blog post, Samsung has announced that it has begun mass-producing a 1TB flash storage chip for phones. “Smartphone enthusiasts will soon be able to enjoy storage capacity comparable to a premium notebook PC, without having to pair their phones with additional memory cards,” said Samsung.
According to the company, its new tech reaches speeds of up to 1,000 megabytes per second (MB/s). It would allow you to transfer a 5GB-sized full HD video in just five seconds to transfer, as opposed to nearly one minute with conventional microSD cards. What’s more is that increased memory will also enable better quality high-resolution video shooting thanks to faster random read speed.
As of now, there is no word on which smartphones could come with 1TB of internal storage. While most of us were expecting the upcoming Galaxy S10 to feature it, that won’t be the case. Samsung has said that it plans to increase production during the first half of this year. Stay tuned to Mr. Phone to get notified on everything new that happens in the smartphone world.
