Yesterday, Samsung unveiled their range of Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 1.0 memory cards to the world and they will have significant advantages over micro-SD cards that we use now. These are specifically targeted towards D-SLR and 3D VR cameras, along with action cameras and even drones! Apart from the standard 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants, the UFS 1.0 cards will offer even a 256GB variant.


If you are like us, you must be wondering what advantage it will give you over traditional micro-SD, when using it in a smartphone. The answer to that is better 3D gaming on phones that use their external memory as the first choice and faster, smoother 4K and VR media playback. The UFS card will read data at a speed of 530MBps, which will put it in the same category as a standard SATA Solid State Hard Disc used in full fledged computers! To give you an idea of the speed, consider the fact that the next time you are transferring a movie on to your UFS card, every GB of data will just take 2 seconds to write onto it. That's five times more than what micro-SD cards are capable of right now and very impressive.

Galaxy Note 4

 

Well, There is no question that the Galaxy Note 4 will have some scrumptious specs on board. We're talking about a 5.7 inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution display. A Snapdragon 805 is powering the phablet, which is expected to employ 3GB of RAM, a 16MP rear-facing camera, and 32GB of native storage. While it sounds like a power user's dream, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 might not be able to single handedly turn around Samsung's fortunes.

 

Neil Shah, research director at Counterpoint Technology Market Research, says that specs are not Samsung's problem. Samsung needs to use premium materials for the Galaxy Note 4, says the analyst. And with a larger screened iPhone just weeks away, Wall Streeters are hoping that Samsung has included something new with the device. Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics, says that at this point in the game Samsung needs a "revolutionary design," like a bendable screen. He says that the manufacturer also needs to lower prices, and add more high-end features to its entry-level phones.

 

S5

 

Samsung also needs to consider markets like India, where just 6% of the population owns a mobile phone. In both India and China, Samsung's entry-level models are priced 30% above the low-end offerings produced by local companies like Xiaomi. And Google's Android One program will help manufacturers build low priced Android models that will be sold for $100 or less. These phones will start rolling out in India later this year, with local firms like Micromax selling them. Local brands in China and India have been eating away at Samsung's market share in those countries. Last quarter, Xiaomi topped Samsung to take over the top spot in China.


"I hope the Note 4 will have all those factors missing from the S5. For example, a premium design with a new design language that includes some metal instead of the plastic design of its existing products. If you look at the Note 2 and 3, and the Galaxy S4 and S5 from the front they all look the same." - Neil Shah, research director, Counterpoint Technology Market Research
