Samsung starts production of 1TB smartphone storage chip

Samsung has announced that it has started mass production for the industry’s first one-terabyte embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) 2.1. Its intended for next-generation mobile applications, so we’re pretty certain at this point that there will be 1TB versions of the Samsung Galaxy S10, to be unveiled on February 20.

Samsung’s goal is to offer smartphone users the amount of storage that can be found on computers. “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.

The chip measures 11.5mm x 13.0mm, and, according to Samsung, offers 1,000 megabytes per second (MB/s) transfer rate at sequential read speed. Sequential write speeds are advertised at 260MB/s. Samsung anticipates strong demand for the new chip, from “manufacturers around the world”.
