SK hynix said on the 20th that it will provide 1TB UFS 3.1 samples to smartphone manufacturers this month, which means that 5G smartphones with 1T 4D NAND flash memory, computers and data centers may be available next year.
Starting with this supply sample, SK hynix plans to expand the 5G smartphone market. As early as SK hynix released its third quarter earnings report, it was mentioned that the Chinese government is vigorously popularizing 5G smart phones, and demand for memory semiconductors is expected to increase sharply next year.
On the other hand, SK hynix has recently provided customers with 2TB cSSD for computers and E1.L 16TB eSSD for data centers. It is estimated that if these products are certified by customers, SK Hynix will start mass production next year.
