Flash storage spec doubles speeds on future smartphones

Smartphones already have storage speeds that rival PCs and they’re going to take another big leap soon. Standards group JEDEC has unveiled UFS 3.0, a new flash storage standard for mobile devices, Chromebooks, VR headsets and automotive devices that doubles the bandwidth of UFS 2.1 to a stellar 2.9 GB/s. That’s only a theoretical maximum that real-world devices won’t likely reach, however, and requires that the host device has the hardware to support it.
