Samsung has announced the arrival of a eUFS storage chip (embedded Universal Flash Storage) for phones, with a capacity of one terabyte, which is a worldwide first. This new chip is the same size as the previous one, which was 512 GB, and offers up to 1,000 megabytes per second in read speed, which is ten times faster than a typical microSD card. The first phone to offer such a storage capacity will probably be the Galaxy S10 whose release is imminent.

Circuit Breaker, “Samsung is making 1TB storage chips for phones.”

Ars Technica, “Terabyte smartphones are coming, thanks to new Samsung storage chip.”
