E.g. good old Spansion S25FL512S supports single/dual/quad DDR, but
apparently only for read, not write.
Other FLASHes may support both directions. I guess.

Quoting the manual for the above part:

Double Data Rate (DDR)
Mode 0 and Mode 3 are also supported for DDR commands. In DDR
commands, the instruction bits are
always latched on the rising edge of clock, the same as in SDR
commands. However, the address and input
data that follow the instruction are latched on both the rising and
falling edges of SCK. The first address bit is
latched on the first rising edge of SCK following the falling edge at
the end of the last instruction bit. The first
bit of output data is driven on the falling edge at the end of the
last access latency (dummy) cycle.
SCK cycles are measured (counted) in the same way as in SDR commands,
from one falling edge of SCK to
the next falling edge of SCK. In mode 0 the beginning of the first SCK
cycle in a command is measured from
the falling edge of CS# to the first falling edge of SCK because SCK
is already low at the beginning of a

Yeah, especially Octal and Hyper modes are far from serial ;-)
