Samsung Announces High-End EVO Plus And PRO Plus Memory Cards

Both memory cards cater to different segments of compatible electronic devices.


Samsung has announced through its official blog, details about the new memory card entrants of its external storage family. The new cards (available as Micro SD and SD chips) called the EVO Plus and the PRO Plus, cater to different types and classes of devices, be it camera, mobile phones or tablets.

The EVO Plus cards are high-end external storage solutions for mobile phones, camera and tablets and provide high capacity storage for the same. The cards are available in 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB storage capacities and provide read and write speeds up to 80MB/s and 20MB/s.

Performance is up there in the UHS-I Speed Class 1 (U1) and Speed Class 10 range indeed, but it is the PRO Plus series that truly impressed us.

The PRO Plus series of SD and Micro SD cards come in smaller storage capacities but provide faster read and write speeds in the range of 95MB/s and 90 MB/s.

These cards are available in just 32 GB and 64 GB capacities but are basically purpose built for performance over storage capacity. They easily satisfy UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3) and Speed Class 10 performance levels, making them ideal for professional use in DSLRs, and for recording 4K UHD video.
