Samsung Galaxy S10 may debut with super-fast UFS 3.0 storage: The UFS 3.0 (Univeral Flash Storage) standard was announced earlier this year, promising to double the memory bandwidth of UFS 2.1, which is the current go-to standard for flash storage in the mobile space. The Samsung Galaxy S10 may be the first smartphone to feature the new ultra-fast storage when it launches next year.
Samsung’s head of mobile memory product planning Jay Oh revealed at this year’s Qualcomm 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong that the company will launch its next wave of UFS 3.0-enabled devices in the first half of 2019. Though the Galaxy S10 itself wasn’t mentioned by name, it is a very likely candidate for the tech to debut on.
Previous leaks suggest that in 2019, we’ll see three Galaxy S10 models from Samsung. The Galaxy S10 and so-called Galaxy S10 “Lite” are set to pack 5.8-inch displays, while the larger Galaxy S10+ is expected to boast a much larger 6.44-inch screen. All three are said to feature OLED screens, though only the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will have curved edges. The phones are likely to be announced at MWC 2019 in February.
