Samsung is bringing a huge 512GB storage chip to its phones

"The new Samsung 512GB eUFS provides the best embedded storage solution for next-generation premium smartphones by overcoming potential limitations in system performance that can occur with the use of microSD cards", said Jaesoo Han, executive vice president of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics. The company yet has to confirm whether it will use the new storage solution for the Galaxy S9, but it is possible that the upcoming flagship smartphone from Samsung could have a 512 GB option.

MicroSD storage seems to be the main target with this innovation, as Samsung suggest embedded storage is more stable and and less limiting than current external storage cards used in mobile devices.

Penn State to play Washington in Fiesta Bowl
Lehigh's hot start hit a brick wall as the team faced off against a string of Penn State's four returning national champions. The No. 9 Penn State Nittany Lions have a record six Fiesta Bowl victories.

In the end, this new storage solution helps Samsung to keep its comfortable lead in the flash memory market, but this does not mean we are going to see flagships with 512 GB of internal storage space anytime soon. Nothing is impossible these days. The devices are 64-layer 512GB V-NAND chips and have twice the number of cells as Samsung's previous controller chips and storage. Also according to Samsung, which this much storage, you will able to get the following benefits.

The new 512GB UFS device consists of eight 64-layer 512-gigabit V-NAND chips stacked together with a controller chip.

War with North Korea 'closer every day'
The North says the Hwasong-15 missile can be tipped with a "super-large heavy warhead" capable of striking the whole US mainland. The United States has 28,500 troops in South Korea as a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War. "U.N.

Store approximately 130 4K Ultra HD (3840 × 2160) video clips of a 10-minute duration (10x increase over 64GB eUFS storage).

Sequential read and writes reaching up to 860 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 255MB/s respectively. To transfer a 5GB Full HD video clip to an SSD, it'd take just six seconds (eight times faster than what most microSD cards are capable of). When it comes to random operations, Samsung's 512 GB eUFS offers up to 42,000/40,000 read/write IOPS, similar to the predecessors featuring 48-layer 256 Gb V-NAND ICs.

Salil S Parekh appointed CEO and MD of Infosys
Back in 2014, when Infosys was hunting for a new CEO, Parekh lost to Vishal Sikka. Another major contention was the Panaya acquisition by Infosys .

Finally, Samsung noted that it intends to "steadily" increase production volume for its 64-layer 512Gb V-NAND chips, while continuing to expand its 256Gb V-NAND production. Still, we do know Samsung has a habit of using a bunch of similar specs on these two classes and we don't expect anything different come 2018.
