ZUFS 4.0 is a type of NAND flash storage which optimizes data management for AI on the device. It achieves this by classifying and storing smartphone data according to its characteristics in designated areas within the storage device.

This targeted storage approach, unlike conventional UFS, improves the speed and efficiency of data access for the smartphone operating system and artificial intelligence applications.

Benefits of ZUFS 4.0:
  • Faster AI performance: ZUFS 4.0 reduces app launch times on smartphones by up to 45% compared to traditional UFS.
  • Improved Durability: The technology significantly improves read/write performance stability, extending product life by 40%.

SK hynix he says which began development of ZUFS in 2019, anticipating the growing demand for high-performance storage solutions for on-device AI. It collaborated with a global platform services company to improve the technology and ensure it meets industry standards set by JEDEC.


SK hynix will begin mass production of ZUFS 4.0 in the third quarter of 2024, aiming to supply it to several global smartphone manufacturers for integration into their next-generation AI devices.
