Here is good news for those who face a problem with memory shortage problem on their smartphone – thanks to Samsung. The company has announced bringing the world’s first 256GB flash memory, the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0 standard, for the next generation of high-end mobile devices.

The company is now mass-producing 256GB UFS though the company has not confirmed when it will be available in the market. It is based on the company’s bleeding-edge V-NAND technology, which is what allows for better density memory, as well as improved reliability.

Top smartphone manufacturers today offer up to 128GB of external storage capacity – the new chipset will give users greater opportunity to store images, music, and videos – for example, they can store 47 full HD movies on their device.

According to Samsung, the new 256 GB UFS is nearly twice as fast as a SATA SSD for a PC. The company launched 128GB UFS memory in February last year and has doubled within a year. The new UFS memory is Faster and Smaller than Micro SD. It supports up to 260MB/s, which is approximately three times faster than high-performance external micro SD cards.

The UFS memory handles up to 45,000 and 40,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) for random reading and writing, respectively, over two times faster than the 19,000 and 14,000 IOPS of the previous generation of UFS memory.

With the advent of next-generation smartphones that support the USB 3.0 interface, users will be able to transfer data much faster between mobile devices. The USB 3.0 interface will allow sending a 5GB-equivalent Full-HD video clip (average 90-min. movie size) in 12 seconds.
