Micron Unveils Ultra-Compact UFS 4.0 Storage Chip for Smartphones

Micron's UFS 4.0 storage chip represents enables greater efficiency, functionality, and user experience.

Micron, the renowned American memory chip manufacturer, introduced its latest innovation at the MWC 2024. The company unveiled its most compact UFS 4.0 package to date, measuring a mere 9 x 13 millimeters, while still boasting impressive features, including up to 1 TB capacity and exceptional performance with sequential read speeds of 4300 MB/s and sequential write speeds of 4000 MB/s.

The development of this diminutive storage solution was primarily driven by feedback from smartphone OEMs, who expressed the need for more space to accommodate larger batteries. Micron responded by designing and refining the product in collaboration with its partners in joint customer labs across the United States, China, and Korea, leveraging its advanced 232-layer 3D NAND technology.

Compared to its predecessor launched in June, which measured 11 x 13 millimeters, the footprint of the UFS 4.0 chip has been reduced by 20%. This reduction in size not only conserves space within smartphones but also contributes to lower power consumption while maintaining overall performance levels. Additionally, Micron introduced the proprietary High-Performance Mode (HPM), which enhances performance during intensive smartphone usage, resulting in a 25% improvement in speed when enabled.

As smartphone manufacturers strive to enhance the performance and capabilities of their devices, Micron's groundbreaking UFS 4.0 storage chip represents a significant step forward in enabling greater efficiency, functionality, and user experience in the increasingly competitive mobile market.
