Singapore – 27 September 2021 – Samsung Electronics Singapore announced that it will launch its new PRO Plus microSD, and a redesigned and enhanced EVO Plus microSD card starting end September. With the new line-up, Samsung aims to provide customers a comprehensive offering for day-to-day and professional storage needs with microSDs that offer lightning-fast read and write speeds, increased durability and a wide variety of capacity options.
The new microSD cards are ideal for expanded mobile device storage and capturing high-quality photos, 4K Ultra HD (UHD) video and other content on action cameras and drones – even in extreme conditions.
Samsung’s newest microSDs offer improved six types of protection – two more than the previous generation – making them able to withstand water, extreme temperatures, x-ray, wear out, drops and magnetic impact. Offered with a 10-year limited warranty, the PRO Plus and EVO Plus microSDs thus enable users to store data without the worry of lack of space, while also providing confidence that the content is well protected. The PRO Plus and EVO Plus microSD cards also feature an all-new Blue Wave design that gives the cards a fresh new look.
“Consumers want a storage solution that makes it easy to save and retrieve data, while also knowing that their valuable images and video files are protected,” said Jacus Long, Director & Head, Display and Brand Memory Business, Samsung Electronics Singapore. “Samsung’s new suite of microSD offer faster speeds along with increased reliability and durability to deliver the ultra-high performance that professionals or everyday users are looking out for, especially with the advent of 4K and 8K recording that has resulted in larger file sizes.”
PRO Plus microSD cards, a new addition to Samsung’s microSD lineup, are designed for more discerning content creators, offering exceptional read and write speeds of up to 160MB/s and 120MB/s, respectively. The PRO Plus microSD cards will be available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities.
On the other hand, the EVO Plus microSD is designed to give casual users peace of mind by providing high reliability and stable performance for day-to-day use.
