SSDs are known for their lightning-fast storage rates in PCs, laptops, gaming consoles, and other devices. Solid-state drives (SSDs) have long been a feature of iPhones, but Android phones now include Universal Flash Storage (UFS). This type of storage is fast, though not as fast as SSDs.
Lenovo’s new gaming phone, the Legion Y90, is expected to change that. The Chinese gaming phone will be the world’s first Android phone to use a RAID 0 configuration that combines SSD and UFS 3.1 memory efficiently.
A RAID 0 system optimises storage performance by having two drives working at the same time. It can write bits of data to each storage type at the same time. This setup, according to Lenovo, will enhance storage speed by up to 50%.
RAID 0 has been around in PCs and laptops for a while, but this is the first time we’ll see it on a commercially available smartphone.
Specifications and Availability
The Lenovo Legion Y90 will be available for purchase in China on February 28. It will have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, LPDDR5 RAM, a massive 5,800 mAh battery with 68W rapid charging, a 144Hz AMOLED display, and a 64MP camera with 8K video recording capabilities.
