MicroSD cards have been with us for a few years to allow us to store more content on our smartphones. Expand the capacity to have more music, photos, movies, etc.
No abrupt change for small improvements in technology that have these microSD so far has not happened in this fixture safe. Samsung has created the first UFS card , a standard non - volatile storage market. Assuring breakneck speeds in reading and writing.
speeds similar to those that would result from an SSD are achieved. So video recording devices 4K today improve the speed capacity saved as much.
UFS slots compatible with microSD cards will be
However, many will have the concern that shelve the microSD cards in the next terminal. As we say you do not have to worry about. The manufacturer will create in the next hybrid terminals incorporating such technology slots. We can use a microSD card or UFS as we have.
If we look at the horizon, the next terminal that will come with support for UFS cards would be the new Galaxy Note 7 and Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe. They would benefit from a hybrid slot compatible with UFS cards and also with microSD. But something important, current microSD slots are not compatible with these new UFS cards.
For those who do not know what this is the UFS cards, we leave here a table where you can see the read and write rates of a microSD card class 10 and UFS SD card. A good jump, right?
|SD cards UHS-I Class 10||SD cards UFS|
|Maximum reading rate||95 MB / s||530 MB / s|
|Maximum write rate||90 MB / s||170 MB / s|
|Reading random Ratio||2,000 IOPS||40,000 IOPS|
|Ratio random write||190 IOPS||35,000 IOPS|
The shift to this new storage technology will not be something sudden and abrupt. But a slow pace that could last a couple of years until the UFS cards have penetrated the market and many users may gain a bird.
It remains to be seen how they behave in terminals as the Galaxy Note 7 and if they offer the speed to ensure your specifications.
