Samsung 512GB microSDXC EVO Plus Announced
Samsung has announced the new 512GB microSDXC EVO Plus, doubling the size of its previous highest capacity. It is designed as a premium storage solution for high-performing smart phones and other current mobile devices with microSD card slots. Just last week, Samsung indicated it has begun mass producing their 1TB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) 2.1, which will be used in next-gen mobile applications.
The new EVO Plus is essentially a capacity upgrade, as it is quoted with the same read and write speeds (100MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively) as the other models in the line. As such, the new cards can play 4K video content on TVs or monitors without much hassle, says Samsung. The new Samsung microSD card also features the company’s usual 4-proof protection to withstand 72 hours in seawater, extreme temperatures, airport X-ray machines and magnetic fields.
