Micron aims to cram more storage in smartphones with 3D NAND flash
#Micron announced its first #3DNAND chip for mobile devices with the goal of cramming more storage into handsets, and maybe reducing reliance on SD card slots. 3D NAND provides more capacity in the same size chip than other technologies can. Micron’s 3D chip has 32GB of capacity and is targeted at mid-range and high-end phones. It’s based on the new UFS 2.1 standard, a fast storage protocol that isn’t in smartphones yet.
