Galaxy S9 Rumors: Will New Samsung Phone Feature 512GB eUFS?

Samsung's new 512GB eUFS V-NAND storage

Samsung starts cranking out 512GB eUFS storage

"By assuring an early, stable supply of this advanced embedded storage, Samsung is taking a big step forward in contributing to timely launches of next-generation mobile devices by mobile manufacturers around the world".

Would you still be interested in picking up the Galaxy S9 if it shipped with 500GB of internal flash storage instead of a microSD slot? Samsung is also using a bunch of new technologies to increase performance and energy efficiency. Using UFS proved to be the right decision for Samsung, as it achieved much better performance than eMMC, which was predominantly used by Android phones at the time.

"The new high-capacity eUFS enables 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 only about 13 of the same-sized video clips", Samsung points out.

The new solution will provide a huge boost for storage on flagship phones, as well as another product for the strong performing division of Samsung to continue growth. A full, 5GB HD video can be transferred from 512GB chip to a solid-state hard drive in about six seconds, Samsung says, which is over eight times faster than it takes to transfer one from a typical microSD card.

Having a smartphone with 512GB of fast storage on board would certainly reduce the propensity for users to pine for SD card expandability.

Speed's sufficient for most application: Samsung's promised "sequential read and writes reaching up to 860 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 255MB/s respectively" and random data access speeds of 42,000 IOPS when reading and 40,000 IOPS when writing. Imagine pairing a ton of storage alongside Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC), or Samsung's recently announced Exynos 9810 (Samsung typically uses two SoCs for its flagship phones, tapping its own silicon for models that ship internationally and Qualcomm's hardware for U.S. variants).

Samsung didn't say which of its upcoming new phones will get the 512GB eUFS first. This means the eUFS storage will be adept at multimedia experiences that rely on high-bit rate media, great for burst photography, and be capable of high resolution movie recording without any issues. So in case that there will be 512GB Galaxy S9 and Note 9 models, expect to pay a premium for the extra bump in flash memory.
