Version 4.0 of Samsung’s Universal Flash Storage solution, which is utilised in a variety of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, has recently been released. With UFS 4.0, Samsung promises massive speed and efficiency advantages, with commercial manufacturing set to begin in the third quarter of this year.
That means Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldable, as well as the Galaxy S23 series next year, will be among the first to use UFS 4.0 storage. That’s simply speculation on our side, but it appears that Android devices will get significantly speedier very soon.
Samsung Develop UFS 4.0 Storage
Samsung claims that UFS 4.0 has a per-lane capacity of up to 23.2 Gbps, which is double that of UFS 3.1, making it “ideal for 5G handsets that require massive volumes of data processing.” Samsung’s new 7th-generation V-NAND technology will allow for sequential read rates of up to 4,200 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 2,800 MB/s, both of which are significantly faster than the existing UFS 3.1.
Finally, Samsung claims that battery economy has been enhanced, allowing UFS 4.0-enabled mobile devices to last longer while providing quicker read and write rates and increased data bandwidth. Samsung claims a 46% gain over UFS 3x, or a sequential read performance of 6 MB/s per mA if you want more detailed data.
UFS 4.0 storage will be available in quantities of up to 1TB, making it ideal for premium Samsung Galaxy devices with several storage options. UFS 4.0 will very certainly be utilised in either Samsung’s upcoming foldable or the Galaxy S23 series; Samsung will collaborate with other manufacturers to integrate UFS 4.0 into automotive, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) applications, as well as other Android handsets.
