Galaxy Note 7 may feature a hybrid UFS/microSD card slot


Last updated: July 12th, 2016 at 14:00 UTC+02:00

Samsung introduced a new mobile storage format based on UFS 1.0 last week. The company said that the new storage format is going to provide read and write speeds that are 5x better than microSD cards. The only caveat here is that the new UFS cards are not compatible with existing microSD card sockets which means there’s every possibility that the Galaxy Note 7 is going to feature a hybrid UFS/microSD card slot.

Samsung has said in a statement that the new UFS cards are not compatible with existing microSD card sockets, however, it has developed a new socket design that supports both UFS and microSD cards. The company says that it’s working with different partners in the industry to integrate this hybrid slot in next-generation devices. Now that Samsung has created a new storage format that’s significantly faster than microSD and has created a socket that supports it as well as microSD there’s really no reason why it shouldn’t kick off things with the Galaxy Note 7. The slot will enable the Galaxy Note 7 to boast support for Samsung’s faster UFS 1.0 memory cards while also being compatible with existing microSD cards.
