Samsung Introduces EVO Plus 256GB MicroSD Card

Samsung has introduced the EVO Plus 256GB microSD card — the highest capacity for a microSD card in its class designed to handle the video from 360-degree recorders, action cameras and drones.

Samsung said users can now record up to 12 hours of 4K UHD video or 33 hours of Full HD video on their camera or mobile device without needing to change or replace the memory card.

The EVO Plus 256GB raises the bar for capacity and performance of microSD cards due to its V-NAND technology, which offers high read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively.

This level of performance will provide user convenience for storing heavy-loaded, high-resolution photography and 4K video recording, as well as graphic intensive multimedia like virtual reality (VR) and gaming.

The EVO Plus 256GB microSD card provides advanced protection, capacity and performance with long-term reliability.

The new card comes with a limited 10-year warranty in more than 50 countries, including the U.S., Europe, China and other regions starting in June, 2016. The price is $249.99.
