Samsung has detailed its new storage chip for smartphones, which aims to make handheld devices thinner and faster. Delivering a considerable amount of storage space and enhanced performance, the Korean firm said its new 64GB chip is 20 percent thinner than previous ones.
It's made possible thanks to the utilization of 10 nanometer technology instead of the 20nm used in previous offerings. In addition to taking up less space inside the smartphone, Samsung stressed that the company has managed to enhance performance by 30 percent, subsequently leading to 10 times faster speeds than external memory cards.
While smartphones are already shifting towards a thinner and faster designs that offer more internal storage, battery life is also a concern because increased performance will demand more power.
The forthcoming chips have entered the production phase with Samsung expected to incorporate them into the Galaxy S4.
Is it just me, or this world is going nuts?
Does it really make sense to have a 64GB vs a 32GB device if the non-replaceable storage starts failing in a year?
Dunno why some people seems so obsessed with "excessively" thin phones,. if hardware is becoming more efficient,. why make it thinner and have the same battery life when they could simply keep the same girth and slap in bigger battery.
Something to think about.
Keep the faith, keep the critical look, try to do something, despite any solution will come at an initial cost that is unaffordable for most of us (only the ones who have nothing to loose...)
I am living in Spain and have to see that 5 years ago, there were years of waste and steal of public money and now we need to trim budgets... having the only solution of cheaper dismissal and higher taxes (both direct and indirect) to solve a financial crisis and avoid banks going bankrupt while the population is being evicted for nonpayment (with suicide cases...)
Cheaper + Faster + more efficient are what I think is better.
