A new feature of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge regarding the more remarkable generation S6 is not only water protection but also they can have support for micro SD cards, something expected and desired by many.

The fact is that Samsung Electronics is much more than a signature of smartphones, TVs and tablets, but they are also something like the new kings of mambo as memory cards are concerned, the South Koreans have launched the first cards memory based on the new standard JEDEC UFS 1.0 (Universal Flash Storage), which is primarily intended for mobile phones last generation and especially mobile devices of large capacity as DSLRs cameras Virtual Reality 3D action cameras and drones ; In other words, devices with 4K compatibility.

The IFS memories, welded plate, are the internal memories of terminals as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. What the Korean has done has been to make such a removable memory format.

Ransomware headaches

As for its features, let's start with the bad news, it is that despite its resemblance to the MicroSD cards are not compatible with each other simply because the contacts do not match. If the smartphone has IFS cannot function slot MicroSD and vice versa.
Saving that, it has a couple of advantages. The main thing is the speed of reading and writing. According to Samsung, the UFS memory is five times faster than the average MicroSD, with a speed of 530MB / s (HD can read a 5GB movie in just 10 seconds.
As for writing, far exceeds the fastest MicroSD (models such as the Sandisk Extreme Pro 100MB / s) and raises this figure to 170MB / s. In other words, it will be especially useful for use in high-resolution cameras, drones, or 4K to record video and take pictures in burst.
The UFS are certified performance and consumption of the Universal Flash Storage Association, but that does not mean they will automatically succeed.

Sony tried to make the same move with Memory Stick and others never managed to win universal formats. Of course, if a firm has financial and marketing muscle to impose a new format, that is Samsung. We must wait to see if the rest of the industry accepts the UFS.
They have set up four memory capacities that start from the 32GB and take us to a striking 256GB. But these memory cards are no longer just big, they are also as fast as needed in the new generation of gadgets, the problem is that you need.

We are talking about up to 5 times faster in reading and 3 times faster in writing, compared to current MicroSD. 1.0 based UFS (Universal Flash Storage) is a technology that Samsung decided to incorporate into their high-end mobile phone from the Galaxy S6, in 2015.
But placed in the internal memory of the computer, where necessarily need a lot of speed, the difference now is that we talk about storage card, which well be able to take advantage of smartphones, such as drones, or next-generation cameras, which mainly takes a lot speed to handle the flow of video data.
