Samsung Electronics has announced that it is now mass producing Ultra High SpeedíV1 (UHS-1) interface microSD cards that support the highest performance levels required on advanced LTE (Long Term Evolution) smartphones and tablets.

The new UHS-1 memory card comes in a 16 gigabyte (GB) density. It is comprised of Samsung's 20nm-class 64Gb toggle DDR 2.0 devices and an advanced Samsung controller supporting the ultra fast UHS-1 interface.

According to internal tests, the new 16GB UHS-1 microSD card has a maximum sequential read speed of 80MB/s, the vendor said. This is more than four times the read speed of today's advanced microSD cards, which operate at 21MB/s.

Initiating production of the 16GB UHS-1 microSD cards began late March. In the future, Samsung plans to expand its microSD card offerings with higher density solutions.
