Samsung Announced UFS 4.0 Storage with upto 4200MB/s Read Speed
Samsung announced the new version of Universal Flash Storage as UFS 4.0 on Wednesday. The mass production of the product will start in the last quarter of this year. The latest UFS 4.0 will enhance the efficiency as well as the speed of electronic devices like smartphones. The storage chipset is more likely to debut in Samsung's new foldable devices or new galaxy series flagship smartphones.
The bandwidth of UFS 4.0 is almost double that of UFS 3.1 of up to 23.2Gbps per lane, ideally suitable for 5G smartphones as it requires more data processing speed, according to the company. The performance speed of the latest storage version goes up to 4,200 MB/s read and up to 2,800 MB/s write, much faster than the previous version of UFS 3.1 storage.
" UFS 4.0 will come in a compact package with a maximum dimension of 11mm x 13mm x 1mm for more effective space utilization and design convenience, and will come in a variety of capacities ranging up to 1TB." - Samsung Semiconductor Tweet.
The company also mentioned that Samsung will work with other tech companies to make UFS 4.0 available for other Android smartphones, Automobiles, and AR/VR apps. As per this Korean electronic giant, UFS 4.0 has improved 46% over the UFS 3.1 version.
