Samsung releases UFS 4.0 storage with faster data transfers and more power efficiency.

Samsung has unveiled has UFS 4.0 storage, which boasts faster data transfer rates and more power efficiency over UFS 3.1.

The foundation of many Android smartphones, tablets, and other portable electronics is UFS, or Universal Flash Storage. It decreases load times and, when combined with a powerful processor, makes your flagship smartphone feel speedy. Faster than other types of flash storage.

Several aspects of UFS 4.0, which might be used in the future Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, but is more likely to be used in the Galaxy S23, have now been confirmed by Samsung Semiconductor. With maximum data transfer speeds of 23.2Gbps per lane, this new flash storage standard significantly outperforms UFS 3.1 in terms of performance. Samsung claims that this is twice as fast as the 11.6GBps maximum rates of UFS 3.1 and will improve the processing of AR and VR on 5G handsets.

Not only that, but sequential write rates can reach 2,800MB/s and sequential read speeds can reach 4,200MB/s. This is made feasible, according to Samsung, using 7th Gen V-NAND technology. In addition to these performance improvements, UFS 4.0 is stated to have a 46% higher power efficiency than UFS 3.1. With a sequential read speed of 6MB/s per mA, this might help guarantee that your next smartphone has an even longer lifespan.

In addition to being employed in next flagship smartphones, AR, VR, and even automotive applications, this new storage technology is based on the JEDEC standard specification.

According to Samsung, UFS 4.0 will start going into mass production in Q3 2022 and be offered in capacities up to 1TB. We may see late-2022 flagship phones using UFS 4.0 storage, which suggests Samsung’s upcoming wave of smartphones and foldable devices will use the quickest flash storage currently available.
