Samsung has announced the latest version of its Universal Flash Storage (UFS) solution and version 4.0 will go into mass production in the third quarter of this year. UFS 4.0 will bring big speed and efficiency gains for mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. We could see the debut of the UFS 4.0 storage solution on the latest versions of Sammy’s new foldable devices like the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4. If not, UFS 4.0 will likely mark its first appearance in the 2023 flagship series of Galaxy S23.
