Samsung Begin Mass Produce 1TB Flash Storage Chips, Coming Soon To iPhone

Samsung has begun mass production of 1TB eUFS (embedded universal flash storage) flash storage chips, it uses Samsung's fifth-generation V-NAND technology. It has been a hot topic for users that iPhones don’t include the microSD card slot to include double the storage. However, with a 1TB flash storage chip, there’s no need for a memory card, as the iPhone can reach the laptop-level storage.

In addition, to have higher capacity, eUFS technology is faster than the standard SSD and microSD memory cards, with a continuous read speed of 1000Mbps and a random read speed of 58000 IOPS. Even more impressive, the 1TB flash storage chip size is the same as the current 512GB one.

Samsung also claims that with 1TB storage, it will let you store 260 10-minute videos in 4K UHD (3840x2160) format. For comparison, the 64GB eUFS widely used in many current high-end smartphones is only capable of storing 13 videos of the same size.

As a leader in NAND flash solutions, Samsung has been supplying flash storage chips to Apple since 2017. This also means that the 1TB eUFS chip will eventually appear on the iPhone, and push the price even further. The 2018 iPad Pro is available in a 1TB version, which is the highest capacity it ever offered in the current iOS device lineup.
