How about a microSD card that can read/write at 80MB/s

Like computers, smartphones require a storage medium, and yes we use memory cards which are very crucial to store apps, pictures, music, videos, etc. Since the past few years memory cards have been reduced in size, but have reached huge capacities.


Today we use the microSD card, which as big as a human nail but can store up to thousands of songs, photos, videos, etc. While memory cards can store in gigabytes today, there is also something a measurement of the speed at which data can be written or read from the card.

Today Samsung has announced that it has made a microSD card that has a maximum read speed of up to 80MB/s. Now that’s about 40 images of a decent resolution in one second. The new 16GB memory cards come with a 20nm 64GB chip with toggle DDR 2.0 support and an advanced Samsung controller. The company will also be launching higher capacity cards, so we can expect 32 or even 64GB microSD cards capable of speeds of up to 80MB/s.
