Similar to other large companies, Samsung relies on different vendors for its flagship smartphones. For example, the company’s latest flagship smartphone Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus feature Snapdragon 835 processor or the Exynos 8895 chipset while using camera sensors form competitors. Interestingly, the company is currently using two different types of storage solutions for the smartphone mdoels.
When the company released its flagship model, it mentioned that both models contain faster UFS 2.1 storage chips. However, a latest report from XDA Developers point out that Samsung might be using relatively slower UFS 2.0 storage chips depending on markets.
While you are unlikely to notice the difference between the two chips, it’s worth checking the specifications before you decide to purchase a new smartphone. Currently, the UFS 2.1 chip has a read speed close to 800 MB/s while the UFS 2.0 chips feature slower read speed of around 500 MB/s. If you use your smartphone for heavy multitasking, then you might benefit from the faster UFS 2.1 chip as it will make the processes faster.
