The 1TB Samsung eUFS chip is now in mass production and now smartphones can easily have the same amount of storage as a laptop.

Samsung has announced the brand new 1TB Samsung eUFS flash storage chip for smartphones — making it a world’s first. Samsung is one of the leading makers of storage chips for mobile devices and this is a major development for the industry. The 1TB Samsung eUFS chip is now in mass production and now smartphones can easily have the same amount of storage as a laptop.

Within the same package size (11.5mm x 13.0mm), the 1TB eUFS solution doubles the capacity of the previous 512GB version by combining 16 stacked layers of Samsung’s advanced 512-gigabit (Gb) V-NAND flash memory and a newly developed proprietary controller. Smartphone users will now be able to store 260 10-minute videos in 4K UHD (3840×2160) format, whereas the 64GB eUFS widely used in many current high-end smartphones is capable of storing 13 videos of the same size.

“The 1TB Samsung eUFS is expected to play a critical role in bringing a more notebook-like user experience to the next generation of mobile devices. What’s more, Samsung is committed to assuring the most reliable supply chain and adequate production quantities to support the timely launches of upcoming flagship smartphones in accelerating growth of the global mobile market.”

This chip is also supposed to be faster giving users the ability to move files much quicker. The chip can operate up to 1,000 megabytes per second and features the sequential read speed of a 2.5″ SATA SSD. Samsung says that 5GB-sized full HD videos can be offloaded to an NVMe SSD in as fast as five seconds.
