"The new Samsung 512GB eUFS provides the best embedded storage solution for next-generation premium smartphones", said Jaesoo Han, executive vice president of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics. The chips should also have applications in cars, laptops, tablets, and other devices that need power-efficient, high capacity storage.

Samsung announced it has begun mass producing the industry's first 512GB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS). After Samsung announced its Exynos 9810, which would no doubt be found running in the upcoming flagship, the company is back with another announcement, which suggests that the smartphone could feature tons of internal storage. Together, they double the density of the previous 48-layer V-NAND 256GB eUFS memory. Imagine pairing a ton of storage alongside Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC), or Samsung's recently announced Exynos 9810 (Samsung typically uses two SoCs for its flagship phones, tapping its own silicon for models that ship internationally and Qualcomm's hardware for U.S. variants). Even though the 512GB eUFS solution contains 2x the number of cells as compared to a 256GB eUFS, Samsung states that the "inevitable increase in energy consumed" will be minimized by the 64-layer 512-gigabit V-NAND's "advanced circuit design" and new power management technology in the controller. The controller chip also helps by speeding up the process that converts logical block addresses to physical blocks. According to Samsung, the random writes of the UFS package are approximately 400 times faster than the 100 IOPS speed of a conventional microSD card. And the phones will be advanced enough to handle multiple demanding operations at once, such as downloading a video while also searching through big files in dual-app mode.

Protective order filed against OU running back Rodney Anderson
On Monday, a team spokesman said Oklahoma was "gathering information" but has not commented on Anderson's status since then. Anderson has been an integral part to the Sooners' 12-1 season and College Football Playoff semi-final appearance.

Would you still be interested in picking up the Galaxy S9 if it shipped with 500GB of internal flash storage instead of a microSD slot?

On a related note, Samsung intends to steadily increase an aggressive production volume for its 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND chips, in addition to expanding its 256Gb V-NAND production.
