A couple of days back Samsung launched the brand new Galaxy Note 10 and while the device had its own share of bells and whistles, it was also the first device from Samsung to come with UFS 3.0.
For those who don’t know, UFS stands for Universal Flash Storage and it is commonly used in handheld devices for storage. The UFS 3.0 is the latest storage standard and is twice as fast as UFS 2.1. The new standard also allows a mind-boggling data transfer speeds of up to 23.2Gbps (11.6Gbps in two lanes). For some, this might sound a little too familiar and that’s because OnePlus was the first company to add UFS 3.0 to its OnePlus 7 series which was launched a couple of months back. Ironically, OnePlus was using UFS 3.0 tech made by Samsung but the company didn’t use its own tech on the Galaxy S10. Samsung was supposed to be the first company to launch a device with UFS 3.0 support. For some reasons, Samsung added UFS 3.0 on Galaxy Fold and skipped Galaxy S10 but that turned out to be a disaster as Galaxy Fold was cancelled due to the design issues.

The good thing for Samsung is that Note 10 comes with UFS 3.0 and it managed to beat both OnePlus 7 Pro and Galaxy Fold in the read/write benchmarks. The Galaxy Note 10 managed to beat all the devices with UFS 3.0 in terms of Random write and SQLite. This is definitely good news for Samsung as the company was beaten to the punch by OnePlus but Note 10 now outperforms OnePlus 7 Pro in terms of data transfers.
