South Korea’s Samsung Electronics started churning out a smartphone memory, which enables users to store a high-definition movie in a few seconds.

The Seoul-based company announced Tuesday that it had begun mass producing 512-GB embedded universal flash storage (eUFS) 3.1 for the first time in the industry.

The tech giant said that the product is about 60 percent better than the previous norm in terms of random performance.

In particular, the new product delivers three times the write speed of the previous mobile memories. As a result, it takes just 4 seconds to store a 5-GB movie, according to Samsung.

The firm added that a smartphone equipped with its eUFS 3.1 will offer the speed of an ultra-slim notebook in storing massive files like video clips or large-sized photos.

With our introduction of the fastest mobile storage, smartphone users will no longer have to worry about the bottleneck they face with conventional storage cards,” Samsung Executive Vice President Choi Cheol said.

The new eUFS 3.1 reflects our continuing commitment to supporting the rapidly increasing demands from global smartphone makers this year.”

Together with the 512GB memory, Samsung plans to make 256GB and 128GB options available for smartphones, which will hit the shelves this year.

As the flagship unit of Samsung Group, Samsung Electronics is the world’s largest manufacturer of memory chips and smartphones.
