Get ready 4K enthusiast. Samsung is introducing a microSD card with 256 GB capacity with its cutting edge V-NAND advance technology which offers unrivalled feature.
This card has a write speed of 90MBPS and a read speed of 95 MBPS allowing users to take high-resolution photos and videos. This 256 GB Evo plus microSD card can be used in smartphones, camera, computer tablet and even drones that record videos at high speed.
“With the upward trend of consumers using high-performance, high-capacity mobile devices, our new, V-NAND-based 256 GB microSD card solution allows us to deliver the memory card consumers have been craving,” said Un-Soo Kim, senior vice president of Brand Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung. “Our EVO Plus 256 GB microSD card will provide consumers with large capacity and high read and write speeds.”
The numbers are mind boggling with this 256 GB microSD card. Users can record up to 12 hours of non-stop 4K video, 33 hours of 1080p video, 55,200 high-resolution images, and 23,500 mp3 songs.
Samsung proudly announced that this card has IEC 60529, IPX7 ratings. It essentially makes the memory card water proof, temperature proof. Hell, it’s even x-ray and magnetic proof.
The storage card comes with 10 years limited warranty but all this comes at a cost as Samsung has mentioned that the memory card will cost a mind-boggling $250 when it launches. SanDisk has a similar memory card with 200 GB capacity and will only set you back $79 if you think Samsung’s offering is expensive.
One other feature is that the memory card can be formatted into adoptable storage that essentially converts the available memory as internal storage for devices running Marshmallow. But all the existing data will be erased and the new data will be encrypted to work only with a single parent device.
