Samsung starts mass production of 10nm flash memory chips with the highest industry density

Good news for those who want to add a higher capacity memory card to their phones and tablets, or larger SSDs to their laptops without breaking the bank, as Samsung announced it has started mass production of 128 Gb NAND flash chips.

Samsung says these are made with the 10nm process, and have the highest density in the industry, so flooding the market with such chips will surely bring prices down for high capacity cards, embedded memory, SSDs and so on.

The new chips are capable of 400Mbps throughput, and Samsung plans to use them in expanding its mass production of 128 GB microSD cards, as well as SSDs with higher than 500 GB storage capacity, to facilitate the transition from hard drives to flash memory-based ones. Hopefully we'll see them one day embedded as internal storage in our phones and tablets.

It's "1xnm class" memory chip production, in other words, -non Samsung bulls**t marketing talk - it's 19nm flash memory chips.

"SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, announced today that it has begun mass producing a 128-gigabit (Gb), 3-bit multi-level-cell (MLC) NAND memory chip using 10 nanometer (nm)-class* process technology this month."

Follow to actual press release...

*10nm-class means a process technology node somewhere between 10 and 20 nanometers.

Still good news, but there's some quality marketing b.s.

Phonearena said 10nm, Samsung said 10nm class which is true. So Samsung isn't the one that is BSing.

What is the difference between internal storage in phones now and SSDs?

Otherwise, cheaper SSD...Great:)
