Samsung Electronics News

Samsung Electronics: The iPhone X is causing Samsung problems - just not the way we predictedFor the second time in a matter of days, a report from Asia claims that Apple's iPhone X is seriously hurting Samsung. It's just not the way we thought back when the iPhone X launched. Weaker-than-expected sales forced Apple to revise its iPhone X parts orders, these reports say. And Samsung, the only manufacturer of OLED screens good enough for Apple's iPhone, is now forced to slash its OLED panel production. In a follow-up story, Nikkei says that Samsung decided to cut OLED screen production in response to Apple's decision to reduce iPhone X orders. Samsung apparently plans to make 20 million iPhone X OLED screens at most during the March quarter. That's a significant drop compared to the initial goal of 45 million to 50 million iPhone panels. This translates into a 60% overall drop in production for the plant, and a 50% drop for Apple-dedicated OLED production. Samsung has not decided its production target for the June quarter, but the company envisions further cutbacks in the second quarter. Samsung is looking to offset the iPhone X losses by selling OLED screens to Chinese and other customers. But the company is still expected to see a profit decline for the first half of the year, compared to 2017. Samsung invested $12.6 billion last year in anticipation of large OLED panel orders from Apple. Analysts also expect Apple's OLED orders to recover in the second half of the year. That's when Apple's 2018 iPhones are supposed to be unveiled and launched. Apple should launch three distinct iPhones this fall, with up to two models packing OLED screens.BGR

Samsung Electronics: Samsung announces a whopping 30TB SSDSamsung today announced it has begun mass production of the world's largest solid state drive (SSD). While unassuming in its 2.5 inch form factor, this drive packs a whopping 30.72 terabytes and leverages Samsung's latest V-NAND technology. Called the PM1643, the drive combines 32 new 1TB NAND flash sticks, each comprised of 16 stacked layers of 512Gb V-NAND chips. Nerd speak aside, these 1TB packages allow for super speedy transfer - about three to four times that of an average SSD - and incredible capacity to boot. Each drive is reportedly capable of storing 5,700 full HD movies. With our...This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: SamsungThe Next Web
Samsung Electronics: You won't be able to afford Samsung's record-setting 30TB SSDYou probably don't need 30.72TB of fast SSD data at home, but plenty of companies around the world will be excited to hear that Samsung is now ready to manufacture the industry's largest capacity SSD ever, which also happens to be insanely fast. Announced on Tuesday, the drive targets enterprise systems, and it's built on Samsung's 512Gb V-NAND tech. The company says it offers the "industry-first 1TB NAND flash package, 40GB of DRAM, new controller," and new software, which will allow it to store some 5,700 5GB movies and only fail every two million hours. The PM1643 is a dull, unassuming name for this SAS SSD, but it's one to remember. The device doubles the capacity of the previous 15.36TB high-capacity SSD that Samsung introduced nearly two years ago. "This breakthrough was made possible by combining 32 of the new 1TB NAND flash packages, each comprised of 16 stacked layers of 512Gb V-NAND chips," Samsung explains. "These super-dense 1TB packages allow for approximately 5,700 5-gigabyte (GB), full HD movie files to be stored within a mere 2.5-inch storage device." The PM1643 features new tech innovations, including a "highly efficient controller architecture," that makes room for more storage space by combining nine controllers, and Through Silicon Via (TSV) technology that interconnects 8GB DDR4 chips to create 10 4GB TSV DRAM packages. Samsung says this is the first time TSC-applied DRAM was used in an SSD. Software features, meanwhile, include metadata protection, data retention, and recovery from sudden power failures. The drive can deliver one full drive write per day over a period of five years without failure. The mean time between failures is of two million hours, Samsung says. The drive offers sequential read and write speeds of up to 2,100MB/s and 1,700MB/s, respectively, which is three times faster than a typical 2.5-inch SSD. Random read and write speeds are at 400,000 IOPS and 50,000 IOPS, or four times the performance of a regular SSD drive. The price for the 30.72TB SSD was not announced, but the 15.36TB cost more than $10,000 two years ago. Samsung plans to launch other capacities using the same technology, including 15.36TB, 7.68TB, 3.84TB, 1.92TB, 960GB and 800GB versions.BGR
