Micron has introduced its latest technological marvel at the Mobile World Congress 2024, showcasing the most compact UFS 4.0 package to date. With dimensions standing at just 9 x 13 millimeters, this innovation not only offers up to 1TB capacity but also delivers exceptional performance with a sequential read speed of 4300 MB/s and a sequential write speed of 4000 MB/s.

The key motivation behind Micron’s development of this smaller solution stems from feedback received from smartphone OEMs. These manufacturers expressed a desire for more space to accommodate larger batteries in their devices. Micron’s response was to create a product that not only addresses this need but also maintains top-tier performance.

Developed in joint customer labs across the United States, China, and Korea, the compact UFS 4.0 storage solution is built on its cutting-edge 232-layer 3D NAND technology. The footprint of this chip is 20% smaller compared to the previously launched 11 x 13 mm solution in June, resulting in reduced power usage without compromising overall performance.

One notable feature that was introduced is the High-Performance Mode (HPM), a proprietary optimization feature that enhances performance during intensive smartphone use. With HPM enabled, users can experience a 25% improvement in speed, showcasing Micron’s commitment to delivering high-performance solutions.

Micron is currently shipping samples of its new UFS 4.0 storage in three variations – 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB. This groundbreaking technology not only meets the growing demands of smartphone OEMs but also signifies Micron’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of compact, high-capacity storage solutions in the mobile industry.


Pokdepinion: I genuinely wonder how many brands would adopt this one specifically for storage on their smartphones / tablets. The smaller size would also allow for either a smaller body or having more parts inside, perhaps an additional module for an extra feature.
