Samsung 256GB UFS card
Samsung Electronics has unveiled removable memory cards based on the JEDEC Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 1.0 Card Extension Standard for use in high-resolution mobile shooting devices such as DSLRs, 3D VR cameras, action cams and drones. Samsung's UFS cards come in storage capacities of 256, 128, 64 and 32 GB. The new 256GB UFS removable memory card provides more than five times faster sequential read performance compared to that of a typical microSD card, reading sequentially at 530MB/s which is similar to the sequential read speed of the most widely used SATA SSDs. With this UFS card, consumers have the ability to read a 5GB, Full-HD movie in approximately 10 seconds, compared to a typical UHS-1 microSD card, which would take over 50 seconds with 95MB/s of sequential reading speed. Also, at a random read rate of 40,000 IOPS, the 256GB card delivers more than 20 times higher random read performance compared to a typical microSD, which offers approximately 1,800 IOPS. When it comes to writing, the new 256GB UFS card processes 35,000 random IOPS, which is 350 times higher than the 100 IOPs of a typical microSD card, and attains a 170MB/s sequential write speed, almost doubling the top-end microSD card speed. To shoot 24 large/extra fine JPEG photographs (1,120MB-equivalent) continuously with a high-end DSLR camera, the 256GB UFS card takes less than seven seconds, compared to a UHS-1 microSD card which typically takes about 32 seconds, at 35MB/s.

Samsung PRO Plus 128GB microSD cards
Samsung Electronics has unveiled its PRO Plus 128GB microSD card series, which is built with company's MLC NAND flash solution. With the introduction of its new 128GB microSD card, Samsung provides consumers with a memory card solution for capturing heavy-loaded, high-resolution video, photography and multimedia contents for use in today's mobile devices. The PRO Plus 128GB microSD is the newest addition to Samsung's PRO Plus lineup, which was first introduced in 32GB and 64GB versions in May 2015. The 128GB microSD features the highest-quality MLC NAND flash memory and UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3) and Speed Class 10 support, offering the industry's fastest speeds of up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s for read and write respectively, Samsung said. The new PRO Plus 128GB microSD is meant for use in high-end smartphones and tablets, as well as fulfilling the security, capacity, performance and environment requirements inherent in newly emerging audio and video consumer electronics, specifically action cameras and drones. The new memory card is equipped to handle storing and transferring professional-grade photos and 4K UHD video recording and playback. It can record up to three hours and 50 minutes of 4K UHD video or 16 hours and 20 minutes of Full HD video in action cameras without the need to change or replace the memory card. In addition, the PRO Plus 128GB microSD can store a maximum of 10,940 photos or 30,670 MP3 songs based on Samsung's estimated user settings and configurations. Samsung will now offer the new PRO Plus 128GB microSD memory card in more than 50 countries including China, Europe, Korea, the US and other regions.
