This latest addition to the PRO Plus lineup provides speeds of up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s for read and write, this level of performance making it an ideal choice for use in high-end devices.

Large and fast memory cards are a must for most smartphone users who carry their music collection around or simply shoot many photos and videos using their handsets. Most mid-range and high-end smartphones and phablets support at least 128 GB memory cards, if not larger. Earlier today, Samsung Electronics unveiled a new 128 GB microSD card globally, adding a new member to its PRO Plus lineup.

According to the official press release, "this 128GB memory card provides a powerful new standard for advanced multimedia memory solutions, delivering the highest speed and storage capacity currently available for the growing consumer base using action cameras, drones, premium smartphones and DSLRs with 4K recording and playback feature." It uses high-end MLC NAND flash memory and can achieve speeds of 95 MB/s for read and 90 MB/s for write operations, offering both U3 and Class 10 support.

The new Samsung PRO Plus 128 GB microSD card will be available for purchase in over 50 countries, including China, Europe, and the US. It comes with a 10-year limited warranty, and can handle extreme temperatures, water (IEC 60529, IPX7), as well as magnetic and X-ray interferences.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
