Samsung is about to make microSD cards in phones redundant. Well, probably after a few years. The company has just announced that it has started the production of the world’s first 512 GB flash memory using the new UFS standard. This behemoth of a storage solution is intended for use in “next generation” mobile devices, which probably means we’ll get to see it when the Galaxy S9 gets announced early next year. Which also means it might not have a microSD card reader as well.
