Smartphones have only just gotten access to 128GB of storage right out of the box and Samsung’s already working on moving that generous storage capacity to lower-cost smartphones. That’s why the company has announced that they’ve got a new type of NAND flash storage on the way.

Samsung’s Dr. Jung-Bae Lee, Senior Vice President of the company’s Memory Product Planning and Application Engineering Team, said “With the introduction of our value-focused, 3-bit NAND-based eMMC 5.0 line-up, we expect to take the lead in the expansion of high-density mobile storage. We are continuing to enhance our next-generation embedded mobile memory offerings with improved performance and higher densities to meet increasing customer demand across the mobile industry.”

What does this mean? It means that mid-range devices will soon have access to 128GB storage capacities without the need for a microSD card and without a significant bump in price. Just as soon as Samsung gives us a time-frame for its rollout onto the market.
