Samsung boost internal memory storage to 4GB

Samsung is no stranger to flash memory technology and the company has announced numerous advances over the past year. Today, the company announced that it has developed a new 4GB multi-chip package (MCP) destined for mobile phones.

"We’ve now perfected a memory chip that allows handset manufacturers to significantly reduce development time while deploying an extremely robust design that will result in higher performance for smaller phones, with higher storage capacities," said Samsung's Jim Elliott.

Since its hip to put a brand on new products, Samsung call its new chip package "moviMCP" and the NAND flash memory included within the package is referred to as "moviNAND".

The moviMCP uses an eMMC interface which allows easy integration into mobile phone platforms. Also, Samsung reckons that mobile phone manufacturers can save money and complexity by not including an external SD, miniSD or microSD slot for memory expansion due to the inclusion of 4GB of storage onboard.

Samsung is currently sampling its moviNAND and expects to ship 392 million units by the end of the year.

why don't we make a larger chip module that comprises not only the function of the traditional sim cards but also incorporates memory

Or just make it the same size as a SIM and call it MegaSIM.

Then SanDisk can buy that company...;)

Obviously forcing Samsung to come up with a new strategy.
