Samsung to soon launch the world’s first 1TB chip for smartphones

Samsung is designing storage chips that will allow smartphone users to save up to 1TB of data, or the equivalent of around 500,000 photos, ahead of the launch of its rumoured Galaxy S10 smartphone next month.

Previously, while there were a handful of phones with 1TB of storage like the relatively unknown $1,400 Smartisan R1, the price and difficulty sourcing the parts to put that much storage in the phone made such devices incredibly niche.

While Apple and Google are busy pushing cloud storage services for your mobile devices, Samsung has been developing the next generation of physical storage.

According to Samsung, the 1TB eUFS solution retains the same 11.5mm x 13.0mm package size as the previous 512GB version but they have doubled the capacity by combining 16 stacked layers of Samsung's 512-gigabit V-NAND flash memory with a new proprietary controller.

Further, Samsung says a 5GB HD video could be transferred from a phone with this chip to an SSD in as fast as five seconds - 10 times faster than the typical microSD card. Random reads are 38 percent faster on the 1TB variant compared to the older 512GB chip. Samsung says that this media-hoarding room runs 10 times faster than ordinary memory cards.

"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 Samsung. Samsung is touting sequential read speeds of up to 1000Mbps and write speeds of 260Mbps, which should enable the storage module to offer continuous video recording even at 960fps. Concepts of laptop shells powered from smartphones have been popping up sporadically over the past few years.
