Samsung Set To Produce The First 4-Bit SATA Solid-State Drive (SSD) For Consumers.

The South Korean tech giant said it would launch several 4-bit consumer SSDs later this year with 1TB (terabyte), 2TB, and 4TB capacities in the widely used 2.5-inch form factor.

Setting the stage for rolling out advanced memory technology to meet the growing demand for faster, more reliable performance across a wide span of applications, Samsung on Tuesday said it began mass producing the industry’s first 4-bit SATA solid-state drive (SSD) for consumers.

The South Korean tech giant said it would launch several 4-bit consumer SSDs later this year with 1TB (terabyte), 2TB, and 4TB capacities in the widely used 2.5-inch form factor.

The new 4-bit quad-level cell (QLC) SSD is expected to bring a new level of efficiency to consumer SSDs.

“Samsung’s new 4-bit SATA SSD will herald a massive move to terabyte-SSDs for consumers,” said Jaesoo Han, Executive Vice President of Memory Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics.

South Korean brand Samsung is all set to launch several 4-bit consumer SSDs later this year.
“Samsung’s new 4-bit SATA SSD will herald a massive move to terabyte-SSDs for consumers.

“As we expand our line-up across consumer segments and to the enterprise, 4-bit terabyte-SSD products will rapidly spread throughout the entire market,” Han added.

Typically, as data stored within a memory cell increases from three bits to four, the chip capacity per unit area would rise and the electrical charge (used to determine information from a sensor) would decrease by as much as 50 per cent, making it considerably more difficult to maintain a device’s desired performance and speed.

However, Samsung’s 4-bit 4TB QLC SATA SSD maintains its performance levels at the same level as a 3-bit SSD, by using a 3-bit SSD controller and TurboWrite technology, according to the company.

With its new 1Tb 4-bit V-NAND chip, Samsung said it will be able to efficiently produce a 128GB memory card for smartphones that will lead the charge toward higher capacities for high-performance memory storage. (IANS)

Google has rolled out a “Go Edition” of its recently launched Artificial Intelligence (AI)-packed Android 9 Pie with additional storage, faster boot time, better security and more to bring improvements to entry-level phones.

The “Go edition” brings a fully redesigned set of Google apps, which are specifically built to serve the needs of first-time smartphone owners.

“Along with an additional 500MB storage, Android 9 Pie (Go Edition) also comes with features like verified boot and an accessible dashboard for tracking and monitoring data consumption,” Sagar Kamdar, Director of Product Management, Android wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.

“We welcomed our first wave of Android (Go edition) phones this April, and now there are more than 200 devices available in 120+ countries including India, South Africa, U.S., Nigeria and Brazil,” Kamdar added.

Android Pie is now available on Google’s Pixel phones and the Essential Phone followed by Motorola, which plans to ship Pie to many of its flagships this fall.

“A core part of these apps include unique features, like free downloading in YouTube Go, that aren’t found in the classic app,” Kamdar added.

Google launched Android 9 Pie earlier in August that uses AI to predict how users would like to experience their devices while offering a smoother navigation system and features like “Adaptive Battery” which learns the apps users use most and prioritises battery for them.
