Samsung Semiconductor has announced its newest UFS storage tech. UFS 4.0 uses Samsung’s 7th Gen V-NAND memory and with a proprietary controller that offers some insane read and write speeds as well as big power savings. Interestingly, Samsung did not choose to announce this via their usual Newsroom website but through Twitter. There were plenty of tweets, though, going over some of its specs.
Samsung’s UFS storage is intended primarily for use in smartphones, although with the number of Android-powered devices out there and cameras that run entire operating systems and feature internal storage, there is a lot of potential in other markets, too. And boasting read and write speeds of up to 4,200MB/sec and 2,800MB/sec respectively, they certainly seem capable of handling the demands of today’s high-resolution cameras.
