What is UFS that people still don’t know? where?

If you describe the storage capacity of the phones that have been released recently, you may have noticed that there are various types of storage, such as 128GB, 256GB, etc., as well as UFS 2.1 and UFS 3.0.


So what does that UFS and the numbers behind it mean to indicate…?

In order to fully understand, I will first explain a few things that existed before UFS.

Before UFS, many phones in the past and some current phones use the embedded MultiMedia Card (eMMC) storage standard. Using the eMMC storage standard, the information is entered and recorded.

It is easy to remember that Storage Standard is a storage ‘standard’ specification and a type of memory card that is embedded in phones. eMMC also has various versions, so I won’t mention it anymore.

Now…If we want to continue about UFS, UFS stands for Universal Flash Storage and it is also a kind of storage standard. We can see UFS included in today’s flagship phones. For example – Oneplus 7 Pro, Galaxy Note 10,… .

What are the advantages of UFS?
As UFS – Universal Flash Storage, Universal = common” means “applicable to all” so it can be used “anywhere, It can be used in many ways.”
In other words, it can be widely used in phones, digital cameras and other mobile devices.

Flash Storage = Read & Write is a storage that can be done very quickly when reading/importing data. And because the power consumption is very low, the battery can last a long time.

How much faster

is UFS than eMMC?

(His work is too confusing with too many technical terms to describe it anymore.)

UFS and eMMC work differently and their speeds are different.

There are currently 5 versions of UFS. UFS 1.0, UFS 1.1, UFS 2.0, UFS 2.1 and finally UFS 3.0 have been released.

(in theory)

The latest eMMC 5.1 is 250 Mb/s per second

UFS 1.0 and 1.1 300 Mb/s per second

UFS 2.0 and 2.1 600 Mb/s per second (1200 Mb/s max)

UFS 3.0 1450 Mb/s per 1 second (max 2900 Mb/s)

They have different speeds.
Calculate yourself how fast…

It’s so fast, when opening big games, it’s very fast when opening applications. In addition, it can perform large-scale operations with high speed requirements, such as 4K video recording.

Because of this, the latest phones include UFS storage. But Apple’s iPhones and iPads use NVMe (non-volatile memory express).

I hope you will get something to remember. Thank you very much for reading till the end.
