Samsung Begins Mass Production of Industry’s Fastest NAND Storage for Smartphones and Tablets

Today, Samsung announced that they have begun production of the industry’s fastest embedded NAND storage. The production model name is the eMMC Pro Class 1500 and will come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB size options delivering read speeds of up to 140MBps and write speeds of an equally impressive 50MBps. Based on Samsung’s testing, in comparison to previous eMMC offerings, it is four times faster in random reading and writing – processing up to 3500/1500 IOPS (inputs and outputs per second). 

The benefits from speeds like these will most definitely be noticed in system-wide applications such as the galleries, file browsers, HD video and 3D recording, high-performance mobile games, and things of that nature.

Samsung did not mention specifics for when we can see these in devices, but with volume production taking place already, our guess is by the end of this year or maybe sooner.

    Should be great in the next Nexus device

    Apple is going to be granted a dress patent for square black chips. Its a shame these will never see the light of day. But there goes Apple innovating up ways to hold back progress through litigation.

    No doubt its going to the iphone first. Dont understand why they do that.

    • Apostrafee

      Because they are two separate companies in one….the side that makes these parts shares nothing but the Samsung name and they pretty much do what they want

      its all about the money

    Tim, it’s MB/s not mbps. Big difference as the latter is not very impressive.

      Nope, you’re 100% correct! Fixed! Thanks :)

        Remember little b is mostly internet speeds and big B is for just about anything else.

          b = bits, aka the smallest stored information unit, B = bytes, also somewhat resembles an 8, which coincidentally is 8 bits per byte. so B > b, and also B=b8

            I am a computer scientist I know the difference between a bit and a byte.
            I was just saying that to easily remember that just about only time the something is measured in bit notation is internet speeds. The rest of the time things are typically measured in binary byte notation, with the only notable exception I can think of being at stores where storage is measured in bytes rounded to be 1000 per MB instead of 1024 MB.

            Which in storage terms if you want the OS displayed amount you use MiB and GiB.

          • cashx3r0

            But how many bits are in a nibble?

          • xformulax

            Irrelevant, but 4

    • TheOiulkj

      One of my biggest pet peeves, when someone mixes up bits and bytes.

  • zepfloyd

    Can’t wait till Apple sticks this in their devices then claims it was all their magic that allowed for 4x the device speed. Clowns.

    This should read “140MB/s and write speeds of an equally impressive 50MB/s”. 140/50Mb/s wouldn’t be all that impressive ;)

    Hopefully these are in the next Nexus phone (or Nexii), regardless of the manufacturer.

    Apple will use these memory chips in their next iPhone iteration in 2013, and sue them at the same time just for shits and giggles.
