Samsung has announced that it has designed the world’s first storage chip that will allow users to save 1TB of data.

The 1TB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) comes ahead of the rumoured launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone next month.

“The 1TB eUFS is expected to play a critical role in bringing a more notebook-like user experience to the next generation of mobile devices,” said Cheol Choi, executive vice president of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics.

“What’s more, Samsung is committed to assuring the most reliable supply chain and adequate production quantities to support the timely launches of upcoming flagship smartphones in accelerating growth of the global mobile market.”

Compared to the previous 512GB version, the new storage chip is the same package size but has double the capacity.

Additionally, the 1TB chip will allow users to transfer large amounts of multimedia content more quickly.

It has a 1,000-megabyte-per-second sequential read speed, twice that of the usual SSD and faster than its 512GB predecessor.

Samsung said that it anticipates that there will be "strong demand for the 1TB eUFS from mobile device manufacturers around the world” and therefore, it plans to expand the product of its fifth-generation 512Gb V-NANDS at its Pyeongtaek plant in Korea.
