Samsung launches its first 512 GB microSD card for nearly 300

Yordan, 29 October 2018

Samsung announced in the summer that a 512 GB microSD card is being prepared for launch and the time has come. The German version of the company website and online store listed the accessory with the staggering price tag of 289.90. It is yet to launch it, but you can sign up to be notified when it becomes available.

The immensely high price tag is even more surprising when you see how much is the 256 GB microSD - just 99.90. This means you get twice the storage for three times the price and the luxury to have half a terabyte for extra storage in your smartphone. At least the German website offers some monthly installment deals.

The read and write speeds of the EVO Plus card are up to 100 MB/s. According to Samsung, a 3 GB video in 4K will be transferred in just 38 seconds. The capacity is equal to 78 hours of Full HD video or 150,300 images, but the fine print says the storage capacity is actually 93.1% of the designated capacity. There is also an SD adapter in the package and Samsung has a 10-year warranty on the product.

Well the price is insane and i bet a manufacturing price is maybe 1/4 of selling price. As has been said on XS Max review its just a same thing and the diifference between XS MAX 256 GB and 512 GB is 350 dollars. This price is out of this world...

yes your right but hybrid trays weren't a standard either and they are now, so nano sd cards might just be the beginning

Eh, some people would rather keep it on something physical. I like the cloud though personally
