The first smartphones with UFS 3.0 memory hit the market in 2019.3 years in the world of technology are forever, so it’s no wonder that the next, much better generation is already on the horizon.
Samsung announces UFS 4.0 memory. What’s new?
The memory announced by Samsung complies with the specifications established by the JEDEC organization. Samsung declares that its bones are characterized by:
- speed up to 23.2 Gb / s per line (increase from 11.6 Gb / s in UFS 3.1);
- sequential write speed up to 2800 MB / s (up from 1200 MB / s in UFS 3.1);
- sequential read speed up to 4200 MB / s (up from 2100 MB / s MB / s in UFS 3.1);
- consumption of 1 mA of energy for every 6.0 MB / s of sequential write (46% higher energy efficiency compared to USF 3.1).
Samsung’s UFS 4.0 bones are to measure up to 11 x 13 x 1 mm and hold up to 1 TB of data.
The new type of memory provides roughly twice the performance of UFS 3.1. This will translate into the overall operation of the phone, including speed of installing and starting the application.
Samsung also argues that the UFS 4.0 standard is ready for the dynamic development of the 5G network. Using a new generation network, theoretically, it is possible to transfer data faster than UFS 3.1 bones would be able to save them.
When will UFS 4.0 hit the first smartphones?
Mass production is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2022. So there is a chance that the new memory will go to the foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, which should debut in late summer.
It is worth recalling here that the Galaxy Fold from 2019 was announced as the first smartphone with UFS 3.0, but & hairsp; – & hairsp; due to the need to postpone the market launch of & hairsp; – & hairsp; finally was overtaken by OnePlus 7 Pro. Now Samsung has the opportunity to rehabilitate itself.
We can be sure that for several years, UFS 4.0 memory will be directed mainly to smartphones from the top price range. In addition, it is also to land on board cars or virtual and augmented reality sets.
