The Lenovo Legion Y90 will arrive with an SSD and UFS 3.1 storage in RAID 0

The Legion Y90 is taking shape to be a really exciting smartphone, especially after Lenovo’s latest teaser on Weibo. It mentions an SSD and UFS 3.1 storage chips working in RAID 0 configuration. This is possibly the industry’s first.

There have been smartphones with SSDs before, Apple’s iPhones have been using them instead of UFS chips ever since the iPhone X. However, the heterogenous design from Lenovo will allow using the UFS storage system alongside an SSD working in RAID 0 configuration.

For those unaware of RAID 0, it’s a way to increase storage performance by using two drives working simultaneously and writing bits of the data to each of them.

It’s been used in high-end PCs and laptops for years now but this is probably the first time a commercially available smartphone will have it. Lenovo says that this improves the read and write speeds of the UFS 3.1 storage by 50%.
