The company is offering 32, 64, 128, or 256 GB capacity models and the performance is incredible compared to even the high-end current microSD cards. UFS cards offer sequential read speeds of up to 530 MB/s, multiples faster than microSD.
Samsung says you can transfer a 5GB, 1080p movie in about 10 seconds compared to 50 seconds for the average UHS-1 microSD card. Write speeds are up to 170 MB/s, as well, about seven times faster than the average card aimed at consumers.
For now, it is unclear what devices will support removable UFS cards and what the price will be for such a powerful chip.
