    Tech is impossible to keep up with these days. The instant you buy something sometimes even before it arrives on your doorstep the next big thing is announced. This is exactly the case with Samsung's new 256GB UFS 2.0 Mobile Storage. I just put in my pre-order for the Galaxy S7 Edge.

    A year after Samsung announced 128GB UFS 2.0 storage Samsung announces they have doubled the capacity of their UFS 2.0 storage. The 256GB UFS 2.0 storage is capable of 850MB/s read speeds, and 260MB/s write speeds. These speeds are up to 3xs faster than the speeds of SSD hard drives. The chips are smaller than a standard micro sdcard. It's too bad that Samsung decided no to put this innovative storage option inside the Galaxy S7. This could have been just one more feature to help Samsung's S7 to stand out among the crowd.

    That's pretty impressive. I wonder if it'll debut on the Note 6....

    My guess is Sammy will use this chip in the Note 6 and it will not be available to the Galaxy S line for a year.

    Where did you get your data from?
    Intel 750 NVMe SSD is 2200MBs read and 900MBs write.
    That memory is ⅓ the speed or SSD drives.
