UFS 4.0 flash drive: a new standard for high-speed memory in smartphones

Smartphone memory will be doubled

Samsung has announced a new flash memory standard, UFS 4.0, which promises a significant performance boost over its predecessor, UFS 3.1. In particular, we are talking about the fact that productivity will double.

 

Flash 4.0 delivers up to 23.2Gbps per lane, according to Samsung, which is twice the capacity of UFS 3.1. The company says UFS 4.0 bandwidth will be particularly useful for 5G smartphones given the large amount of data that will need to be downloaded to the devices. The new memory will also help meet the data demands of augmented and virtual reality applications.

Energy efficiency is another benefit of the new flash memory, with sequential read speeds of 6.0 MB/s per milliamp (mA). And it's 46% more efficient than what UFS 3.1 offers, meaning users will see an increase in battery life despite better performance.

 

The compactness of the new flash memory module is also among the achievements. For example, a 512 GB UFS 3.1 module measures 11.5 x 13 x 1.0 mm. Whereas the maximum size of a UFS 4.0 module will be 11 x 13 x 1 mm for 1 TB of storage.

 

Mass production of UFS 4.0 will start in the third quarter of 2022, which means that UFS 4.0 could appear in smartphones at the end of this year or early 2023. Perhaps the UFS 4.0 flash drive will debut in one of Samsung's flagships.
