Samsung has announced that it is building 256GB embedded chips using the Universal Flash Storage 2.0 standard.

“For sequential reading, the 256GB UFS takes advantage of two lanes of data transfer to move data at up to 850MB/s, which is nearly twice as fast as a typical SATA-based SSD used in PCs,” said Samsung.

“In terms of sequential writing, it supports up to 260MB/s, which is approximately three times faster than high-performance external micro SD cards.”

Samsung said the new chips will allow smartphone users to store 4K movies, and transfer data faster over devices that support USB 3.0.
