Yes, you heard it right. Samsung has started mass producing a new memory chip which gives insane amount of storage space – as large as that of computers.
As per reports, the South Korean company is now producing a memory chip for smartphones that has memory of 512 GB!
Right now, some top end smartphones like iPhone X’s top model come with 256 GB of internal storage.
“The new Samsung 512GB eUFS provides the best embedded storage solution for next-generation premium smartphones by overcoming potential limitations in system performance that can occur with the use of micro-SD cards,” Jaesoo Han, Executive Vice President of Memory Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics, was quoted as saying.
By assuring an early, stable supply of this advanced embedded storage, Samsung is taking a big step forward in contributing to timely launches of next-generation mobile devices by mobile manufacturers around the world,” Jaesoo added.
The new high-capacity storage will enable a flagship smartphone to store approximately 130 4K Ultra HD video clips of a 10-minute duration — which is about a tenfold increase over a 64GB chip which allows storing only about 13 of the same-sized video clips.
