Samsung announced its first 1TB eUFS 2.1. The chip has already entered mass production so we can expect the next-generation premium smartphones to feature it and the Galaxy S10+ will likely to be the first one.
The new 1TB eUFS chip is just as big as the previous 512GB chip while holding double the storage capacity by combining 16 stacked V-NAND flash memory layers and a newly developed controller.
The new chip boasts sequential read speeds of up to 1000 MB/s and sequential write speed of 260 MB/s. A standard 2.5-inch SATA SSD caps at around 540 MB/s read speeds, so this is mighty impressive. Compared to the previous generation of 512GB storage, the 1TB chip’s random read speeds have increased by 38%.
