Samsung is planning to integrate its new 128GB Universal Flash Storage (UFS) memory chip into its smartphone models. Such large drives used to be slow, but by utilising command queuing and serial interface, the UFS chip can handle speeds that compare favourably to Solid State Drives. A UFS chip is 2.7 times faster at reading random data than the average flash drive found in other smartphones.
The UFS chip (also available in 32GB and 64GB models) could even make it to the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Images of both models were leaked and released earlier today.
