Samsung Firing Up Mass Production Of World’s Fastest NAND Storage For Mobile Devices!!!
In the busy world of Android development there are the usual players- Samsung, HTC, Motorola, ASUS, Sony, LG, etc. One of the things a lot of people forget is that Samsung in addition to selling millions of Android devices, also provides the hardware for vast amounts of devices, including one of its biggest customers-Apple. Today Samsung announced some big hardware news that will surely affect the next generation of top-tier mobile devices.
When you pick up your new phone or tablet I am pretty sure most of you scope out the processor and it’s clock speed as one of the first hardware checks right? One of the things a lot of people just glance over however is the RAM on board. RAM stands for Random-access memory and have been around since the Williams Tube in 1947. Things have come a VERY long way since this cathode ray tube was cutting edge and today the RAM on your device and what type it is has a lot to do with how fast your phone performs. Samsung has taken the wraps of the current world champ in RAM speed and says they are starting production. This NAND storage is known as the Pro-Class 1500 high-speed embedded memory(eMMC) and will be available for devices in 16, 32, and 64GB densities. The 1500 delievers what is currently the industries fastest imbedded memory speeds at 140MB/s with the ability to write it up at 50MB/s. These speeds are roughly 4 TIMES the current fastest chip made by Sammy so we are looking at quite a step forward.
So what is this going to do for your next phone? Think a smoother swifter end-user experience along with improved web browsing, video playback, social networking, augmented reality, and of course gaming graphics performance! Just for fun the 64GB eMMC can store 16,000 MP3 files on a chip weighing only 0.6 grams, Freddie Williams eat your heart out!!! Look for these to start finding their way into Sammy’s next generation of high-end mobile devices. With Processors becoming more and more bad ass it is great to see that NAND storage is not going to be left behind!!
