Samsung has just announced 2 new SD and microSD cards that has faster transferring speeds. This is due to much bigger media files being introduced and used; eg 4k UHD video content and bigger gaming files size.
The new PRO Plus is designed to handle storing and transferring professional-grade photos and 4K UHD content from D-SLR, smartphone, tablets and etc. It has higher read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively. The PRO Plus comes in 32GB and 64GB variants on SD & microSD. Both cards are UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U) and Speed Class 10 performance.
The EVO Plus will be available on both SD and microSD cards and has capacity in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. The reading and writing speeds is up to 80MB/s and 20MB/s respectively which provide UHS-I Speed Class 1 (U1) and Speed Class 10 performance.
Both of the PRO Plus and EVO Plus cards are equipped with Samsung 5-proof features; waterproof, temperature proof, X-ray proof, magnetic proof and shock proof protection. Both of the cards can now withstand up to 72 hours submerged in seawater.
