Seems good to me. I hope my next phone has this. Who wouldn't want another standard if that standard actually greatly IMPROVES things?
swirly, 07 Jul 2016Way to go, Samsung! Yet ANOTHER new standard for expandable storage.But as long as this new standard is there to take over MicroSD card as the UFS cards is WAAAAAAAY WAY better than the current MicroSD cards, then it's fine. And that's even normal progression of technology.
It's not like Apple that is going to take away the 3.5mm minijack (as rumored) that is a widely used standard today and replace it with something new that isn't better in any shape of form than the 3.5mm minijack is today, then that's a bad way of replacing something.
Samsung isn't that dumb to do anything like Apple is going to do here (if the rumours are correct about this).
Julliard, 07 Jul 2016Pressure other company to use UFS card. The same way how other company pressure Samsung to use... morei didn't catch the need for the reply to my comment and i'm not really sure if u like or not the usf card mentioned in the post (too many different arguments)
as a reply i can say that alternatives or upgrades are always welcome wether they're good, practical or welcomed is another thing... usf card seems really good for the speed and i can agree with u in the fact that SD are really usefull nowadays but u can't deny the fact it can be faster/better
Estimu, 07 Jul 2016Really nice from samsung to be upgrading the stuffs even more, we won't be hearing much about ... morePressure other company to use UFS card. The same way how other company pressure Samsung to use USB Type C. Yeah, thats right. Taste your own medicine. Btw, why are people making a big deal of this changes?
"It will be expensive. There no device support it. What if they make this their proprietary format? It will dies out. Blablablabla..."
Shut up with the stupid comment. UFS card will never dies out because it is super fast. With 4k video demand and VR recording availability faster card is just what we need.
Now, Samsung even 'gladly' change the external storage card format for you since they changing the usb format anyway. Btw, who said sd card so 2010 and we don't need it? Professional camera, video camera still use sd card. The tv station, news, graphic-art-design professionals used it everyday. They use and fill the whole card and submit it and insert new card on the go. Don't underestimate the power of sd card.
Way to go, Samsung! Yet ANOTHER new standard for expandable storage.
i would cut those fins to adjust it with my present micro SD slot
I'm afraid to buy another samaung sd card.I bought two sd cards (32gb) but both can't store more than 4gb.It shows 29gb on PC but it automatcally deleted my files when over 4gb.That samsung producing defect products.
Really nice from samsung to be upgrading the stuffs even more, we won't be hearing much about ufs cards for now (since there're no phones available yet) but hopefully in a couple months they start producing phones and let the pressure for other companies to step up IF ppl get hype about it :D
Thank Heavens .. march of technology keeps on -despite trolls hitlers shylocks ..we have electricity ! 4G LTE .. JAPAN is the only nation in the world with TRUE LTE speeds 120mbs + while usa uk france germany even china with FALSE lte of less than 20mbs max.. we recorded max of 16mbs on our samsung galaxy note 4..usually 8mbs ..
PROBLEM- is networks are VERY slow to invest in new tech..trying to squeeze every cent of profit from customers .. lots loud false claims by networks ..proven by tests by independent consumers associations .. trolls gtfo ..

Pro cameras having only internal storage would be beyond retarded, instead of just going to site, take pictures, give card to editors and move along with a new card.
"memory cards are so 2010" ayy, yeah having the option to expand your storage is bad in his mind, ignore the troll. Laugh on and move along.
TheNoteMan, 07 Jul 2016I wonder if Samsung had already fine the Note7 with an adaptor to taking in either a microSD o... morejudging by the format of the card, I could see a combo slot that could take both Micro SD and UFS cards, I just hope this won't be a proprietary Samsung only format but universal like Micro SD is now.
Either this, or some Micro SD revolution that can take both the super speed and backwards compatibility.
this will probably cost me a eye and a kidney... but hey I need these :p

What are you on guys? We're talking about 5x read speed and 2x write speed and you guys are bashing Samsung. You should be thankful and be excited by this insane improvement. Now you can load your apps in sd card and don't even care cause that read speed is as good as internal storage.
It's a huge improvement. It's different from whole 3.5 mm jack that is most likely being removed just for the thinness of phone. Yeah...yeah i know you can use external dac and amp but that would be also expensive to buy a good pair of earphones with high quality dac. Not to mention you won't able to enjoy music while charging, this is seriously fucking annoying.
