OnePlus 7 could use the new UFS 3.0 storage technology that will far exceed UFS 2.1. This would allow the Chinese company’s new smartphone to improve performance in various areas.
OnePlus 7 could bring with it different technologies to allow it to continue to be defined as one of the best performing Android smartphones. We already know that it will probably adopt a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC able to be decidedly performing, but it seems that the company will also focus on something else.
In fact, OnePlus 7 could adopt as a storage memory a UFS 3.0 solution that far surpasses the currently available technology. According to a first result shown by the leaker Ice Universe, the performance would be about twice as much as seen with OnePlus 6T.
Some useful comparisons, to give an idea of the performance of the new OnePlus 7 report the following.
- Sequential read (MB / s) = UFS 3.0: 2279.8 – UFS 2.1: 734
- Sequential writing (MB / s) = UFS 3.0: 1801.1 – UFS 2.1: 203
- Causal reading (MB / s) = UFS 3.0: 146.4 – UFS 2.1: 138
- Random writing (MB / s) = UFS 3.0: 137.5 – UFS 2.1: 22
As you can see, the differences between the UFS 3.0 and the UFS 2.1 technology should be very important. This should mean that OnePlus 7 would have a technological advantage not just in various sectors and especially in everyday use. Combined with at least 6 GB of RAM (but also 8 GB) and with the new processor, there would be room for a significant increase in performance.
Obviously being rumors we still have no certainty that UFS 3.0 will not be used for OnePlus 7 nor will it be used for all memory cuts. For example, it could be used only for the most expensive model, while for the 64 GB and 128 GB versions it could still use UFS 2.1. All that remains is to wait for more details about it.
