Samsung has begun volume production of 128-gigabyte (GB) embedded memory for next-generation mobile devices. The production of the new 128GB eMMC (embedded multimedia card) Pro Class 1500 has started in late August. My iPhone 3G has just 8GB built-in storage, but after 4 years, I have no way to spend such capacity. But now when HD format becomes default, we need larger and larger storage capacity, and 128GB could make everyone happy. With 128GB of the new embedded memory storage, users can store up to 15 full HD, 8GB-equivalent video files in to their lovely device.
“By doubling the highest density of its previous eMMC products, Samsung expects to contribute significantly to a timely release of leading-edge mobile devices,” said Wanhoon Hong, executive vice president, Memory Sales & Marketing, Samsung Electronics. “The higher data storage and faster data transmission will bring a range of benefits to users that compare to those of ultra-slim notebook PCs.”
