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.
