Samsung has only announced that it is mass-producing 1TB storage chips for phones, which means that your phone can come with more storage space in the future than you would ever need. Say goodbye to the days with the very latest 16 GB phones.
Four years ago, Samsung introduced the first built-in Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) device. It was a hardware that could read and write files much faster than an SD card, and its 128 GB capacity eliminated the need for users to add additional storage to their phone.
Four years have passed since Samsung developed eUFS technology, and eUFS has expanded from 128 GB to offer 256 G and even 512 GB of mobile storage options, which is only massive. To put it in perspective, the basic model of the iPhone X only has a capacity of 64 GB, and the basic Surface Pro tablet, sold at nearly $ 1000, comes only with 128 GB of internal memory. But now Samsung has managed to break the terabyte barrier with its newest eUFS chips.
Samsung plans to announce a new phone at its UNPACKED event on February 20. With all the rumors of folding phones and 5G technology flying around, this super-fast 1TB storage device only raises more questions.
Chev Choi, Samsung's Vice President of Memory Sales & Marketing, says Samsung is planning to include a "notebook-like user experience for the next generation of mobile devices." Next Samsung phone will be a ridiculously fast, collapsible, high-performance step in the future? Will it challenge the way we think of smartphones? We have to wait to find out.
