Samsung's memory marketing VP Cheol Choi says that this 1TB eUFS is "expected to play a critical role in bringing more notebook-like user experience to the next generation of mobile devices".

Samsung is designing storage chips that will allow smartphone users to save up to 1TB of data, or the equivalent of around 500,000 photos, ahead of the launch of its rumoured Galaxy S10 smartphone next month.

The new chip also has exceptional sequential read speed up to 1,000 MB / s, twice the sequential read speed of a typical 2.5-inch SATA SSD drive and about 10 times the speed of a typical microSD card.

They can participate in "Meatless Mondays" or enjoy vegan substitutes such as "plant-based for breakfast". Borges told Shape the effort was Jay-Z's idea after he wrapped up a tour in Europe.

With 16-stacked layers of V-NAND and a new proprietary controller, the UFS will allow users to store up to 260 4K 10-minute long videos.

In real-world terms, the above translates to offloading of 5 GB full HD videos to an NVMe SSD in just about 5 seconds. By contrast, a smartphone with 64 GB of storage can only 13 videos of the same size. Samsung noted that the module itself is the same size as the 512GB chip found on the Galaxy Note 9. The rollout of high-speed 5G mobile tech likely will be the next major driver of smartphone sales growth, with Gartner predicting 5G mobile phones sales will reach 65 million units in 2019. Samsung's new chip, on the other hand, will let manufacturers stack this much storage without inserting cards whatsoever.

This really is a powerful new weapon in Samsung's armoury for one main reason: top-spec flagship phones are increasingly being marketed as laptop replacements, with the incredible processing power and storage in a mobile being harnessed by pioneering new desktop-mode hardware like Samsung DeX. Till the company starts supplying the memory chips to the smartphone companies, we will still have the Galaxy S10 as the only smartphone with that much storage space. Time, of course, will tell.
