Samsung now mass producing 128GB memory for smartphones, tablets
Samsung has now started mass production of its 128GB eMMC memory chips for mobile devices, according to an announcement at the Samsung Mobile Solutions Forum 2012.

128GB is not just tons of storage, but it’s also fast storage with transfer speeds of up to 140MB/s. The new eMMC cards support JEDEC eMMC v4.5 specification for higher memory bandwidth and generally improved performance.

Samsung uses 20nm manufacturing technology for the new 128GB eMMC chips. Like its other eMMC Pro cards, this new one uses NAND with a DDR 2.0 interface.

128GB is equal to a day's worth of HD porn.

Apple should be kept out as a customer for this unless it stops its boorish patent strategy.

Thats a bad idea, if Samsung do that and Apple will sue Samsung out of business. Samsung cant deny any company for ordering.

You're grossly misunderstanding how business works. "No Quoting" or quoting with 200% margin, while a horrible business strategy, is not illegal.

Samsung is free to overquote by say a margin of 400% ... no need to refuse just overquote ...

imagine that 16g might be dropped as high end storage ...and for the phone to be high end it will have at least 32gb ...that would be awesome XD

if they make a good price point for this, i mean smartphones/tablets with 128GB of flash memory, then i would be very happy, the cloud is amazing but until the world and the evolution reach a very stable and wide coverage of data transmissions, i would prefer real storage.

I've done my fair share of complaining about phones that lack expandable storage but if my phone had 64GB of storage or more, I'd let that one slide.
