Samsung recently announced a UFS cards of 256GB which is the first of it kind in the world line-up. Based on the UFS 1.0 standard, they are supposed to be the successors to the microSD cards that we have been using even up till now. UFS cards are much, much faster than anything microSD can achieve, so they are clearly the future.

Samsung  designed a slot for both UFS(256GB) and microSD cards

But the only drawback is that they aren’t compatible with existing microSD card slots, featured in anything from phones to some Chromebooks. This obviously creates an adoption problem, but Samsung may have found a solution.

According to an official statement issued to Droid-Life, the Korean company has designed a slot that can take both microSD and UFS cards, and it says it’s working “with different partners in the industry on this integration for next-generation devices”.

It means that, when you buy a new device with UFS slot inside it, you’ll be able to use your old microSD cards if you so wish, and you also can grab a faster UFS card if you think you need that extra speed. Perhaps Samsung will show its “industry partners” the way by integrating that socket design into the upcoming Galaxy Note7.
