Samsung just unveiled its newest creation: The World’s Highest Capacity microSD Card. The EVO Plus 256GB microSD card has enough memory for 12 hours of 4K video, 33 hours of full HD recording, 55,200 photos or 23,500 MP3s. It allows for expanded storage (that’s kind of an understatement) for premium smartphones and tablets. It can also be used on 360-degree video recorders, action cameras, and drones.
The card is powered by Samsung’s advanced V-NAND technology, and the company asserts that it offers high read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively.
This level of storage and performance is perfect for storing heavy-loaded, high-resolution photography and video recording, as well as graphic intensive multimedia like virtual reality and other gaming tech.
The card has a price tag of $250 , and Samsung will be offering it starting June, with a limited 10-year warranty in 50 countries around the world.
The former record holder was SanDisk, which offered a microSD card with 200 GB of storage.
