Samsung says this is particularly noteworthy, given that its 512GB eUFS solution contains twice the number of cells as its 256GB eUFS solution. Obviously, these chips are being used in more than just mobile phones, since SSDs and high-performance removable memory cards also take advantage of their performance and reliability.

Do you think the Galaxy S9 will be able to tout 512GB of internal storage?

It was nearly two years ago that Samsung announced that it was kicking off mass-production of 256GB storage chips implementing the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0 interface boasting speeds of up to 850MB/s for sequential reads and 260MB/s for writes.

Samsung announced on December 5 that it had officially begun mass production on a 512GB embedded Universal Flash Storage chip - a first for the mobile industry. It has built 64-layer 512 gigabit chips. For example, the new high-capacity eUFS enables a flagship smartphone to store approximately 130 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) video clips of a 10-minute duration, * which is about a tenfold increase over a 64GB eUFS which allows storing only about 13 of the same-sized video clips.

In the end, this new storage solution helps Samsung to keep its comfortable lead in the flash memory market, but this does not mean we are going to see flagships with 512 GB of internal storage space anytime soon.

The Samsung 512GB eUFS also features strong read and write performance.

For the other part of the equation-random performance-Samsung rates the new eUFS for up to 42,000 IOPS for random reads and up to 40,000 IOPS for random writes. This will improve the speed of storage-intensive tasks such as high-resolution burst photos, file searches, and downloading videos in dual app mode, the company states. With 512GB of onboard storage, it would, for most people, eliminate the need for supplementary storage options, such as microSD cards.

The 512GB eUFS consists of eight stacks of 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND chips and a controller. It's a remote possibility for now, and even if flagships are released with variants having 512GB of storage, they are sure to be priced extremely high.
