And now, with 1 TB of flash storage available for smartphone, rumor world is rife with speculation the upcoming Galaxy S10 will have a 1 TB top-end model.

Samsung has announced that it has started mass producing eUFS 2.1 hardware, with storage capacities of 1TB. Smartphone users will soon be able to leverage storage capacity comparable to a premium notebook PC, without having to pair their phones with additional memory cards, the company said. For those unable to imagine just how big 1 TB is, Samsung offers some perspective: With 1 TB, a user will be able to store 260 4K UHD videos that are 10 minutes long. The Korean tech giant, which is also a market leader in other popular technologies such as display manufacturing, will some time in the future ship devices with one terabyte of internal storage. While that actually doesn't sound that fantastic, Samsung points out that your typical 64GB smartphone can only store 13 such videos.

Although Samsung has not confirmed when the first smartphones will arrive with this chip, it is expected that some of the Samsung Galaxy S10 versions will debut this storage. That's compared to 13 videos of the same size that can be stored on the 64GB flash storage "widely used in many current high-end smartphones", Samsung says.

While Samsung claims that the eUFS 2.1 based storage can achieve sequential read speeds as high as 1,000 megabytes per second, you are unlikely to hit that number in real-world use.

Seagate's officially licensed PS4 game drive adds 2TB storage
Eleven months ago, Sony announced they would be ending the PlayStation Plus titles for PlayStation 3 and Vita . PS Plus cloud storage also allows people to save character profiles and quickly move these to another PS4.

This means that we can copy 5GB of Full HD video from the NVMe SSD in 5 seconds - 10 times faster than a typical microSD card.

Random write speeds, in particular, should help enable applications like continuous high frame shooting.

Samsung believes there will be strong demand for the 1TB storage chip, so it is expanding production of the 512Gb V-NAND chips it relies on at the Pyeongtaek plant in South Korea.
