The company says the new storage solution is 20 times faster than a conventional microSD card, with:

  • Sequential read speed of 2100 MB/s
  • Sequential write speed of 410MB/s
  • Random Read Speed of 63,000 IOPS and
  • Random write speed of 68,000 IOPS

For example, Samsung says it successfully transferred a 3.7GB full HD movie file from a mobile device to a PC – using the 512GB eUFS 3.0 – in just three seconds, a non-conventional speed. The Korean tech giant also plans to debut a 128 GB version of the storage chip in soon time, with 1TB and 256GB versions to come in the second half of this year.

In recent times, Samsung has also caught the eyes of many with the debut of its 1 terabyte (TB) storage chip – a storage capacity previously unheard of for smartphones, and a foldable smartphone.
