The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is the next flagship device that Samsung will announce later this year and now it looks like it could come with 256GB of storage.
Samsung has just announced its new 256GB Universal Flash Storage for mobile devices and we suspect the company will use it in the new Samsung Galaxy Note 6.
The new Samsung UFS memory satisfies needs for ultra-fast speed, large data capacity and compact chip size in high-end smartphones. It is based on the company’s most advanced V-NAND flash memory chips and a specially-designed high-performance controller. The UFS memory handles up to 45,000 and 40,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) for random reading and writing respectively, over two times faster than the 19,000 and 14,000 IOPS of the previous generation of UFS memory.
“By providing high-density UFS memory that is nearly twice as fast as a SATA SSD for PCs, we will contribute to a paradigm shift within the mobile data storage market,” said Joo Sun Choi, Executive Vice President, Memory Sales and Marketing, Samsung Electronics. “We are determined to push the competitive edge in premium storage line-ups – OEM NVMe SSDs, external SSDs, and UFS – by moving aggressively to enhance performance and capacity in all three markets.”
Samsung have not revealed any details on which devices will be using their new 256GB UFS storage, but we suspect that the Galaxy Note 6 will be one of them, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.
