As a leading provider of advanced memory solutions, Samsung has upped the ante once again with EVO Plus 256GB – the highest capacity microSDXC U1 memory card in its class currently available on the market. For instance, if you want to record high-resolution video on your mobile device or action camera for a whole shooting day or just want to upgrade your existing EVO Plus 128 microSDXC card, the EVO Plus 256 is a solid upgrade option that can hold up to 12 hours of 4K UHD video or 33 hours of Full HD video. Apparently, by utilising this microSD card you will eliminate the necessity to swap memory cards after every couple of hours of shooting on your GoPro or VR camera, plus you get an incredibly reliable piece of memory solution.



Unsurprisingly, Samsung utilised its proprietary V-NAND technology to push the limits of its EVO microSD lineup as the EVO Plus 256 microSDXC card provides considerably high read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s respectively. This superb level of performance can be extremely useful for those of you who want to store heavy-loaded, high-resolution video, as well as graphic intensive multimedia like 360-degree videos on your VR video recorders, action cameras, or drones.
