Samsung launches new microSD memory cards

Posted on Sep 8, 2021 by Alex Fice

Samsung are adding to their range of memory cards with the PRO Plus microSD and newly upgraded EVO Plus microSD

The latest additions to Samsung’s range of memory cards have lightning-fast read/write speeds and are more durable than ever. They offer guaranteed protection and outstanding storage options for day-to-day or professional use.

Both the PRO Plus microSD and enhanced EVO Plus microSD cards can be used to expand mobile device storage, capture high-quality photos and 4K Ultra HD video, and with action cameras and drones.

The cards can withstand even the most challenging of environments thanks to Samsung’s new six-proof protection, designed to prevent against damage from water, extreme temperatures, x-ray, wear out, drops and magnetic impact.

Samsung’s PRO Plus microSD cards are aimed at more discerning content creators, with impressive read speeds of up to 160 MB/s and write speeds of up to 120 MB/s, and will be available in three capacities: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.

The newly improved EVO Plus microSD is a great option for casual users, since it’s a highly reliable card with stable performance for everyday use, offering transfer speeds of up to 130 MB/s. Compared to its previous version, it has a 1.3x faster sequential read speed, making it a quick and efficient storage option. It will be available in a wide range of capacities: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.

Both the PRO Plus and EVO Plus microSD cards come with a 10-year limited warranty so users can be sure they will have plenty of storage space and protection for their content.

Vice president of the Brand Product Biz Team at Samsung Electronics, KyuYoung Lee, says “Samsung’s new suite of microSD cards offer the features and capabilities consumers and professionals need: faster speeds along with increased reliability and durability to deliver the ultra-high performance every user wants.”

The cards will become available in early October, recognisable by a new and distinctive Blue Wave design. Each card will come with an SD adaptor that will expand its usage across multiple devices.
