Samsung Unveils a New Line of SD Express microSD Cards

Samsung has released a new range of SD Express microSD cards with some very astounding specs, including 1TB capacity and 800 MB/s transfer speeds.

Samsung’s announcement does not indicate when these new SD Express microSD cards will be available, but rather that production has begun. The company intends to offer a series, beginning with a 256GB capacity and progressing to a 1TB capacity, which it claims it has begun to mass produce.

“With our two new microSD cards, Samsung has provided effective solutions to address the growing demands of mobile computing and on-device AI,” says Hangu Sohn, Vice President of Samsung Electronics’ Memory Brand Product Business Team.

“Despite their tiny size, these memory cards deliver powerful SSD-like performance and capacity to help users get more out of demanding modern and future applications.”

These are the industry’s first microSD cards that employ the SD Express specification, which promises maximum transfer speeds of up to 800 MB/s, substantially faster than the UHS-I interface, which is limited to 104 MB/s, according to Samsung.

Samsung claims that these cards are designed to meet the needs of the “new era in mobile computing and on-device AI.”

Samsung aims to launch the cards later this year, specifically in Q3 2024.
