It is a common knowledge that the Honor brand has been sold. Let’s not talk about how independent the company is from Huawei and how much the sale was really a sale, not a gimmick. In any case, Honor returned to the market as a full-fledged player and was able to renew its partnership with Qualcomm and Google.
The company is now preparing to announce the flagship Honor Magic 3 series, which should bring some surprises. One of them is Micron’s UFS 3.1 flash drive. This is an improved version of high-performance flash memory and the Honor Magic 3 will be the first device to receive it.
Micron’s NAND Flash is a 176-layer UFS 3.1 solution that offers up to 75% faster sequential write speeds and 70% faster random reads over its predecessor. The advantages of the microcircuit also include high download speed, which reaches 1500 MB/s and it can download a 10-minute 4K video in just 0.7 seconds (provided that the file size is 1 GB) and 2 hours 4K -film in 9.6 seconds.
Micron’s UFS 3.1 promises a smoother mobile experience with response latency reduced by about 10% compared to previous generation flash memory. It also stores twice as many shared files in a compact size. The series includes drives with a capacity of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB.
