Samsung has begun manufacturing memory modules that offer as much as 256 GB of storage. The new embedded memory chips use Universal Flash Storage 2.0. Samsung says UFS 2.0 can handle 45,000 input and 40,000 output operations per second, more than twice as fast as previous generations. The chip can move data at speeds up to 850Mbps, and write at speeds up to 260Mbps, which Samsung says is more than three times faster than high-performance micro SD cards. The 256 GB capacity is enough hold about 47 full HD movies. Samsung says the card is intended for mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablet, and laptops.

Saw this one coming

Not sure if I said it here or not, but when Samsung dropped their memory cards in their devices I advised everyone I knew that this wasn't Samsung being an Apple knockoff. Samsung is the number 1 memory supplier in the world, so why would they shoot themselves in the foot by making a device that doesn't support their own technology? Because they were developing an alternate technology and had the power to move the market to their technology by first doing away with the old technology on their own devices, and then releasing new devices with the new memory. Lo and behold, here it is.

I sincerely believe that the GS7 only has a Micro-SD slot because they took so much flack for leaving it off last year's devices and weren't ready to put UFS ...
