Data Transfer Speeds
The new eUFS consists of 128-gigabyte (GB) and 64GB versions and will provide advanced data transfer speeds and robust data reliability.
The new eUFS solution also features an efficient and reliable error-handling process, which is essential for next-generation in-vehicle infotainment, read a press statement from the company.
