Samsung has a 256 GB microSD card, and will sell it to you for $249
Samsung today announced that it's ready to start selling a 256 GB microSD card, which will offer the highest capacity for a card in its class. At the moment, the highest capacity that you can get from a commercially available microSD card is 200 GB (that 512 GB Microdia card announced last year is nowhere to be found yet).
Called Samsung EVO Plus 256 GB, the new microSD card is made for high-end smartphones and tablets, as well as for drones, action cameras, and 360-degree video recorders - like Samsung's own 360 Gear. This is a Class 10 card that offers read speeds of up to 95MB/s, and write speeds of up to 90MB/s. Thanks to its high capacity, the card lets you conveniently store up to 12 hours of 4K video, or up to 33 hours of Full HD footage. Or, if it's music what you want, you can store up to 23,500 MP3 files on it.
The Samsung EVO Plus 256 GB is water-resistant (IPx7-certified), temperature-proof, magnetic-proof, and X-ray-proof. It will be available around the world (including in the US) starting June for $249.99. Do you plan to buy one?
