Samsung Announces 256 GB microSD Card

Samsung EVO Plus 256 GB MicroSD CardSamsung took a lot of flak when they released the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge without microSD card support.  They apparently realized their mistake and took steps to correct it because when the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge were released they both sported a nice little microSD card slot tucked in with the SIM card slot.

Officially the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge support up to a 200 GB microSD card but Samsung has given us a reason to test those limits.  Today they announced the EVO Plus 256 GB microSD card.  That’s right, 256 GB!

I still remember when I upgraded my first computer to a full gigabyte and thought that would be enough to last me for a lifetime.  A little more than a decade later and I can now fit that single gig and 255 more of them on a little chip the size of my thumbnail!

The EVO Plus 256 GB will support read speeds of 95 MB/s and write speeds of 90 MB/s.  It will come with a 10-year warranty and sell for $249.99 starting in June.
