Samsung's new 128GB Pro Plus microSD card is spacious, extremely fast, and highly resistant


Although it is probably best known as the world's largest smartphone manufacturer, Samsung is also one of the world's leading microSD card makers. Earlier today, the company officially unveiled a 128GB microSD card in its Pro Plus series, a brand that only consists of the fastest and most resistant microSD cards that Samsung can currently make. Previously, Samsung launched 32GB and 64GB models in the series, and the new 128GB maintains the characteristics but doubles down on stage space.

The 128GB Samsung Pro Plus is able to sustain read rates of 95MB/s and has a maximum write speed of 90MB/s. Naturally, Samsung says that its new card will be best put to good use in modern smartphones and digital cameras with 4K recording capabilities. On top of these extreme transfer rates, the card can also resist extreme temperatures, water, and even X-Rays.

Interestingly, Samsung's impressive 128GB microSD card will do you no good if you happen to own one of the company's 2015 premium smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, and Galaxy Note 5 all lack microSD card slots, but if a recent rumor is to be believed, the 128GB Samsung Pro Plus microSD card will be the perfect match for the upcoming Galaxy S7.

Spacious, fast, and resistant as Samsung's new microSD card may be, its $199.99 price tag will turn out to be highly prohibitive for most of those interested.

... And you can't use it with ANY Samsung flagship. Or the next one. Or, ever. Oh, the irony.

Funny, I am using a 128GB Samsung Evo card (the yellow one) with my Note 5. Hasn't been an issue. It has all my media on it.

The Note 5 doesn't have a built-in micro SD card slot

Maybe he meant he transfers his data from his Note 5 to his Note 4 and then to the card.

Techie will say whatever to protect Sammy. And I'd rather use thishttp://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/memory-storage/usb-flash-drives/usb-flash-drive-duo/MUF-128CB/EU It's blazing fast as well, much cheaper and you can easily transfer data from PC to your phone. Anyway Techie is idiot

There are a lot of alternatives to MicroSd slot. And yes you may use MicroSd card with the Samsung last flagship. The author is lost in his narrow mind.

I would put the yellow one in my G3 if it had a built-in micro SD card slot... Oh wait, its already in there. I hope G5 retains this feature.

Yellow one is nice. I have the red one on my rose gold 128GB Note 5 with removable battery and IR blaster. Love the built in SD card slot.

That would be the ultimate device. The Note 5 is already the best large phone on the market. It'd be the best ever with those additions.

They can use to the new A series (2016). The A series and J is more profit than their flagship S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus and Note 5.

I've had a Sandisk 64GB Class 10 also die inside my PC. I plugged it in its own adapter, put it in my PC and for some reason ti got hot and it stopped working. It can happen to any of them.

Conveniently placed, useless anecdotal story. How nice.

Interestingly enough, I have had both a Samsung and Sandisk killed by my S5. The right conditions will kill anything. However, I don't get why people still haven't learned to back your photos up if you want to keep them. Geez, I mean seriously.

The fail rate on microsd cards is very high. I deal with them almost everyday at work and they die all the time regardless of the brand. As a matter of fact I just had 2-2gb Sandisk cards die this week.

They died of old age. I've only ever had one of dozens of cards die, it was a SanDisk. And they replaced it no questions asked.
