Furthermore, the random reading speed has increased up to 38 percent compared to the 512 GB version, registering up to 58,000 IOPS. The new Samsung’s 1 TB eUFS solution maintains the same encapsulation size of 11.5mm x 13.0 mm. It doubles the capacity by combining 16 stacked layers of 512 GB V-NAND flash memory and a new development controller of its own.

Even if, Samsung Galaxy S10+ won’t get 1TB of storage, it’s likely other vendors will want to launch 1TB mobile devices this year.
