The chips should also have applications in cars, laptops, tablets, and other devices that need power-efficient, high capacity storage.

As noted, Samsung has not confirmed whether this new chip will be used on the upcoming Galaxy S9 or even the Galaxy Note 9 that is expected to be here in H2 2018.

The new flash storage (eUFS) will feature Samsung's 512-gigabit V-NAND chip and will overcome current limitations posed by the use of MicroSD cards.

The chip is constructed out of eight 64-layer V-NAND chips, the same memory chips that make up Samsung's 256GB chip, and a controller chip that translates commands into actions.

It was nearly two years ago that Samsung announced that it was kicking off mass-production of 256GB storage chips implementing the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0 interface boasting speeds of up to 850MB/s for sequential reads and 260MB/s for writes. Samsung claims that the new eUFS solution will enable 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 about 13 of the same-sized video clips.

After drinking at two locations, she said his friends were insistent that Anderson take her home. "Mr. It is incumbent on our community to reserve judgment and to treat this allegation on its own merit.

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.

Samsung rates the new 512GB eUFS for sequential read speeds up to 860MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 255MB/s. To put that in a real-life scenario, a user would be able to transfer a 5GB 1080p full HD video clip in around 6 seconds.

As for random read speeds, Samsung says that the 512GB eUFS has a read speed of 42,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) and write speed of 40,000 IOPS.

Finally, Samsung noted that it intends to "steadily" increase production volume for its 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND chips, while continuing to expand its 256Gb V-NAND production. However, if the company starts using this storage module, we may be facing the prospects of losing the microSD card slot.

Samsung says that it has introduced a new set of proprietary technologies to maximize performance and energy efficiency.
