UFS 4.0 flash storage has been around for a while now. It is about twice as fast as UFS 3.1 in terms of read and write speeds. All major flagships use it nowadays, and it has been that way for quite some time. Well, the Samsung Galaxy S25 could up the ante, and end up offering even faster storage.

The Galaxy S25 series could come with faster storage

Samsung Semiconductor has revealed a roadmap of sorts, which reveals the details. Next year, in 2025, Samsung plans to offer UFS 4.0 4-lane CS. This memory combines two UFS controllers for increased sequential read speed.

It seems like UFS 4.0 4-lane CS will be capable of 8GB/s speeds, compared to 4GB/s of the current UFS 4.0 storage. So, it’ll be about twice as fast. Samsung highlights that this will help with loading times and on-device AI applications.

We’re not sure if this memory will be ready for the Galaxy S25, though. It is expected to arrive at some point in 2025, with production set in 2024. The Galaxy S25 series is expected in early 2025, most probably in January, so… it remains to be seen.

UFS 5.0 is not scheduled to arrive before 2027

We’ll have to wait until 2027 for UFS 5.0, though, according to Samsung’s roadmap. UFS 5.0 will be capable of offering 10GB/s speeds. So, the Galaxy S27 is expected to debut this storage, if everything goes according to plan, and Samsung sticks to its naming scheme.

Considering that the UFS 4.0 4-lane CS will offer quite a boost over UFS 4.0, we do expect many OEMs to utilize it starting next year. Many companies opt for the fastest RAM and storage when it comes to their flagship smartphones. That is to be expected considering the price tags flagship smartphones go for these days.
