You certainly won't remember this, but the Samsung Galaxy S6 didn't support a microSD , integrating an innovative technology
called UFS (Universal Flash Storage) that would have been severely
slowed down by traditional external memory cards.
The GS7 , however, found a way to merge UFS 2.0 and microSD
features without you even noticing it, while back in February, the
road was paved for a GNote 7 packing blazing-fast 256GB flash
memory chips .
Samsung is always thinking about the “next big thing”, and earlier
today, we may have received indirect confirmation for the first
groundbreaking technology supported by the Galaxy S8 . This one’s
kind of a huge deal if you’re into downloading HD movies and high-
quality photos, which will be made easier and faster on UFS
memory cards ranging from 32 to 256GB in capacity.
Designed primarily for use in DSLRs, 3D VR cameras or drones,
these aim to make the microSD standard obsolete with SATA SSD-
rivaling sequential read speeds of up to 530MB/s, and a 35,000
random IOPS writing rate which is roughly 350 times higher than
that of a “typical microSD card.”
Although it’s not explicitly mentioned in the company’s press
release, we don’t see why the world’s first Universal Flash Storage
cards wouldn’t work on future Galaxy flagships, possibly starting
with the S8 or perhaps foldable X .
I wonder what SanDisk Will have to say about this.
