At the Qualcomm 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong, Samsung revealed that consumers will see UFS 3.0 storage products commercial in the first half of 2019 and commercial LPDDR5 memory (bandwidth 51.2GB/s) by 2020.
The UFS 3.0 specification was released at the beginning of this year, and the single-channel bandwidth has been increased to 11.6 Gbps. The theoretical maximum speed is about 2.9 GB/s, which is double the UFS 2.1 that is currently used in the flagship. In the demonstration session, Samsung announced that the UFS 3.0 solution can provide three capacities of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The maximum data transmission rate is 2000MB/s, and 1TB chips will be shipped by 2021.
Samsung leak the news that since the Samsung S10 series started with 64GB and the UFS 3.0 start-up capacity is already 128GB, the S10 will not be equipped with UFS 3.0 flash memory as standard. The 5G network version launched in the middle of the year may be the first to adopt. Samsung, a big international company, doesn’t know if UFS 2.1 and UFS 3.0 will be mixed?
