Samsung has announced its latest flash storage module based on the Universal Flash Storage 2.0 standard, with modules available in variations of 32, 64 and 128GB.

The highlight of the new modules is that they offer SSD-levels of read and write performance while consuming 50 percent less energy.With read and write speeds of 19,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second), Samsung claims that its UFS 2.0 flash storage is 2.7 times faster than what is currently available in embedded memory solutions that utilize the eMMC 5.0 standard.

As to when we'll see the latest flash modules, it is possible they'll be in launching with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge next week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Seeing as how Samsung is a major manufacturer for embedded flash memory storage, it is likely we'll see these modules in other handset vendors' smartphones later this year.
