OnePlus 5 may have faster storage

OnePlus CEO Liu Zuohu (also known as Pete Lau in the west) has posted on Chinese social networking site Weibo about how UFS (Universal Flash Storage) is becoming the norm in flagship devices.

Translated into English, Lau’s message reads, “Now the flagship machine UFS have become a selling point, too much fun.”

Each OnePlus device until now has used eMMC storage, which isn’t as fast as the newer UFS tech. UFS 2.1 storage allows the phone to both read and write at the same time making memory reading and writing speeds much faster.
