Your next smartphone could be a whole lot faster – but not because of the CPU

Samsung has revealed that it has developed the industry’s first Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 4.0 solution which promises to give the next generation of smartphones a major performance boost.

In a series of posts on Twitter, Samsung Semiconductor explained that UFS 4.0 is significantly faster than the previous generation (UFS 3.1). However, the new smartphone memory standard will eat up less of your device’s battery while also being more compact.
