Samsung’s smartphones could be quicker next year, if the company decides to implement its newest technology in mobile devices in the first place.

The South Korean tech goliath has as of late declared it has begun mass-delivering 256 gigabyte installed memory modules. The chips depend on the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0 innovation standard, and are obviously littler than a MicroSD card.

The company says that the high 256GB capacity will make it possible to store weighty content like 4K movies and also transfer them faster thanks to the USB 3.0 interface. We’re not sure if you’ve downloaded too many 360-degree movies lately, but those are not exactly lightweight, either — and Samsung, for one, has made a bit bet on virtual reality. The company has started production of the chips and will ramp it up in line with global demand.

The new innovation can duplicate information at 850 megabytes for each second, or handle being composed onto at 260 megabytes for every second. This is double the rate today’s SSD drives can deal with, and it implies you could duplicate a 5GB Full-HD motion picture through USB 3.0 at around 12 seconds.

“By giving high-thickness UFS memory that is almost twice as quick as a SATA SSD for PCs, we will contribute to a paradigm shift within the mobile data storage market,” said executive VP at Memory sales and marketing at Samsung Electronics, Joo Sun Choi.

“We are resolved to push the focused edge in premium stockpiling line-ups – OEM NVMe SSDs, outside SSDs, and UFS – by moving forcefully to improve execution and limit in every one of the three markets.”

However, that is the catch – Samsung may choose not to put the new innovation in cell phones just yet – that is the reason Galaxy S7, that just got uncovered like a week back, still games the same-old 32GB stockpiling in addition to the MicroSD opening. The Register trusts it may turn out to be valuable.
