If you thought your media was getting a little crammed inside that 32GB of internal storage, from your current smartphone, it seems Samsung will soon have you covered. Announced at Samsung Mobile Solutions Forum 2012 was Samsung’s “industry first” 128GB eMMC Pro. The high-capacity eMMC has officially gone into mass production for next-generation mobile devices.
Besides plenty of elbow room for all the apps, games, and media you can throw at it, the eMMC Pro is manufactured using Samsung’s 20 nanometer technology and adheres to JEDEC eMMC v4.5 specifications. This means the NAND flash-based memory is capable of hitting speeds of up to read/write speeds of 140MB/s and 50MB/s which, rough translated, means it’s about 5 times faster than current class 10 microSD cards.
I’ve said it before, multi-core processors are all good and dandy, but show me an OS installed on some uber fast memory and I’ll show you a snappy mobile experience. I wouldn’t expect these to make it into next year’s Samsung Galaxy S4, but an Android fanboy can dream…
