It was just last month that Samsung made a splash by introducing its 256GB UFS2.0 memory chips which will no doubt target the mobile device market, and we were left wondering as to just how soon would it be before we are able to pick up devices that come with 256GB of storage space right out of the box. Well, it looks like the wait is definitely shortened with word that Samsung has already kick started the production of such memory chips.
These memory chips by Samsung are said to make use of the latest UFS standard and will be able to rival SATA-based SSDs which currently see action in computers and laptops – and this is surely a high ask by any standards. Samsung is proud that their 256GB UFS2.0 memory chips will boast of 850MB/s read speeds and 260MB/s writes (sequential).
Needless to say, by being too late to appear on the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge should not be a deterrent at all, but rather, it might prove to be something interesting as we can keep our fingers crossed that the new Galaxy Note6 should arrive with such a copious amount of storage space right from the get go.
