Next year's flagships may use Samsung's new 512GB internal flash storage

There are a number of reasons why Samsung would want to rush to bake the 500GB+ non-removable chip into the Galaxy S9. "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".

With Samsung's new 512GB eUFS storage, the South Korean company will soon be able to manufacture smartphones or tablets that have built-in flash storage that's the same as or even more than some desktop or laptop computers.

According to Samsung, its new 512GB eUFS offering features eight 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND chip and a controller chip that stacked together in one single solution.

Samsung has confirmed nothing about which devices would be getting the new 512GB chips but we can assume that the phone maker's next flagship phone - Galaxy S9 - will have 512GB internal storage as an option. The company added it would expand production of 256Gb V-NAND chips, while it would be aggressive in ramping up the newer 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND chips.

Aside from the increased amount of storage, Samsung has also implemented new power management technology into the new solution in order to minimize its power consumption that comes from having more storage on the solution.

"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. That means you only need about six seconds to transfer an HD video clip to an SSD, Samsung says.

For the other part of the equation-random performance-Samsung rates the new eUFS for up to 42,000 IOPS for random reads and up to 40,000 IOPS for random writes. You'd expect UFS storage to be faster than a microSD card, but that's impressively fast.

Samsung said the 512 GB eUFS is significant as it provides solutions to the technological limits of micro SD cards in which their speed slows down on mobile devices. This year, flagships have moved to the UFS 2.1 standard which brings even higher storage performance.
