After reading today’s press release, we can give a hint what will go into Samsung’s high-end phones from now on. Don’t be surprised if the Galaxy S IV and the Note III have versions with super fast 64 GB of internal memory that takes 20% less space inside the phone than the current embedded NAND flash chips.
Samsung just announced that it has created a 64 GB eMMC unit with the 10nm technology, that is 30% faster than the current solution, yet takes much less space inside your phone or tablet, leaving room for other things. Myungho Kim, vice president of Memory marketing at Samsung Electronics, clarified:
The new high-speed, small form factor eMMC reinforces Samsung’s technology leadership in storage memory solutions. We look forward to expanding our line-up of embedded memory solutions in conjunction with the new chip’s design, in pursuing a system-level adoption of application processors and other key components that form the foundation for the most advanced mobile platforms. This will allow us to better attend to time-to-market demands enabling the design of more convenient features for next-generation mobile applications.
