128GB Samsung Galaxy S23 to use slower UFS 3.1 storage

by admin

As the upcoming Galaxy S23 series approaches, the vanilla Galaxy S23 is expected to keep one foot in the past – it will launch with 128GB of base storage. lexter ice world Bringing more bad news for potential S23 buyers, the 128GB version will apparently use the older UFS 3.1 storage format.

The top-end 256GB version will use the new, faster and more efficient UFS 4.0, and will be available at least at launch for the same price as the 128GB model. iceSamsung did not create 128GB UFS 4.0 packages, only 256GB and above. At the moment, only the Japanese competitor Kioxia seems to have 128 GB UFS 4.0, but Samsung Electronics is reluctant to use it.

UFS 4.0 can achieve sequential speeds of up to 4200 MB/s for reads and up to 2800 MB/s for writes

There may be a good reason for this. Flash storage connects chips in parallel to increase data transfer speeds – the more chips, the faster the storage. This means that small storage configurations are often slower than large ones. This means that 128 GB UFS 4.0 packages may not perform at levels worthy of the “UFS 4.0” label.

another way, @chunvn8888, claims that Samsung has further lowered the vanilla Galaxy S23. You can read our article What to expect for more details on the specs. For starters, the tiny S23 will be the only one to ship at 25W, so that’s no huge surprise.

But Chun The tweet paints a gloomy picture for the S23 – Wi-Fi 6E instead of Wi-Fi 7, thicker bezels around the display and a less advanced vibration motor. Not mentioned in the tweet, but it looks like the little S23 won’t get UWB.

The latter is important if you want to use the more advanced SmartTag+ trackers with guidance. As for Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi 7 is not yet finalized, so current devices that claim to support it only support an early version of the standard. But something similar happened with 802.11n (now called Wi-Fi 4) and it worked just fine.

Even with all these cost-cutting measures, the base price of the Samsung Galaxy S23 is expected to increase in Europe and India, but not in the US. This is all based on unconfirmed information, and the official reveal will take place on Wednesday.
