1TB SSD by Samsung. On sale on Amazon.co.uk
There's also a 2TB model on sale as well! I'm pretty sure you can get it all over the place.
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2016Its pcie ssd , not emmc/ufs2.0 in mobile not even SATA. None of the ARM based procrssor will... moreIts made by Samsung. Surely they can make a similar piece of technology for ARM processors.
I know, I wondered why camera makers don't slap some DDR on digi cams to make those work faster. Sony did that with RX4, took them 10 years to figure out this basic thing - they just glued some DDR on the bottom of CMOS sensor, done.
Now I wonder why phone makers don't use SSDs in phones and instead use uber-slow memory. Surely its not because battery would drain 0.1% faster! I'd sacrifice 3% of my battery life for a 50% faster boot! That'd actually SAVE battery by making the boot time faster and memory usage lower overall.
I guess Samsung didn't catch up to basic ideas yet.
All I'm saying is: when trying to perfect a technology, you may get lost in specifics. Take a deep breath, walk 3 steps backward and take a look at the general picture. SSDs in phones are a good idea, not a bad one. Surely it needs some tweaking here and there, but overall its a win-win for both memory makers and customers. And Samsung is both a phone maker and a memory maker!
Samsung is making HDD obsolete. Now laptops and even tablets can have SSD in the TBs. No other company can say that. Kudos Sammy.

try finding even a 1TB one, still nothing on sale in europe.
Sammy always amazes me. From ships down to chips they just keep innovating. Clearly representing the meaning of "SAMSUNG",Big,numerous and powerful.
Stan, 01 Jun 2016Correction. Meant to say 4TBD'hoh... you beat me to your correction. Lol. I DO like where you're going with this, btw.
Yuri84, 01 Jun 2016Just one question: why doesn't Samsung use these chips in their own Samsung Galaxy lineup of p... moreIts pcie ssd , not emmc/ufs2.0 in mobile not even SATA. None of the ARM based procrssor will support this.
Now imagine, 8 of these, on board of a typical 2.5" SSD.
4GB mainstream SSDs are finally becoming reality.
Nihei, 01 Jun 2016"Samsung managed to fit 512GB LPDDR RAM" The image on the right states 4Gb LPDDR4, which tota... moreactually, you read that image wrong. look at it again, it is like this: controller + (16x256Gb V-NAND) + 4Gb LPDDR4 = 512 GB SSD. so the storage space is 512GB helped by 512MB of RAM for buffer - I think.
AnonD-482637, 01 Jun 2016You just announce a non removable storage era, congrats, more money for industry, more wasteLike you would ever need to expand a 256 or 512 storage in a smartphone...
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2016ooooooh impressive. No. Not really. Thats why more of the world on Android.Well, considering its 402MB/s reads and 163MB/s writes, i say its plenty impressive, much higher than UFS 2.0 as of now, with the one with it having "only" 233MB/s reads and around 50MB/s writes, considering the S6 had around 40MB/s writes and 209MB/s reads...
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2016Apple uses its own custom designed PCI-E controllers. Hence the iPhone 6S/6S Plus/SE's impress... moreYeah , impressive Read & Write speed...but still it is half of Samsung's UFS 2.0 speed...!
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2016ooooooh impressive. No. Not really. Thats why more of the world on Android.Most of the world is on Android because there's low, mid, and high range Android phones... It all has to do with what they can afford.
Apple's dream came true. One thing that was user upgradable left. Soon MB series will have a fixed storage option too. Either settle for less hardware or spend more money on high-end.
