In SD, microSD and compact flash formats
Samsung Electronics said that it is introducing Samsung memory cards for sale in Taiwan. Samsung’s new Plus memory cards are available in SD, microSD and Compact Flash (CF) formats with densities of 4-gigabytes (GBs) and 8GBs, with a 16GB density for an SD Plus card.
The company said that the cards are designed to ensure that valuable data is not lost. The memory cards are shock-resistant, water-resistant and are protected from damage caused by magnetic interference.
According to Samsung, the new memory cards feature a brushed silver metallic design or a beige epoxy compound casing, and full compatibility with devices that have memory card slots. Most of the plus memory cards can read data at 17MB/s (megabytes per second), though the CF cards provide read speeds of up to 45MB/s.
Dong Soo Jun, executive vice president of strategic marketing team, memory division at Samsung Electronics, said: “The market for memory cards continues to grow in leaps and bounds as consumers push for added storage in smart phones and other mobile devices.”
“Our well-established leadership in the digital memory card space provides an ideal footing from which to launch premium memory cards that can match rapidly evolving high-end premium devices such as smart phones and high-performance digital still cameras. Our cards also provide consumers with more of the outstanding reliability that they have come to expect from Samsung semiconductor products.”
