Our mobile devices are power houses for content creation and consumption. So it often happens that we find ourselves short on storage. That’s despite the fact that devices now ship with generous amounts of internal storage.

That’s why there’s such great demand for high quality microSD and SD cards. Samsung makes some of the best storage cards in the business. Its 2021 lineup of Pro Plus and Evo Plus cards are also its best yet.

Samsung’s new Pro Plus and Evo Plus microSD/SD cards are its best yet

Samsung has created the new microSD and SD cards with everyday users, content creators as well as professional and enthusiast photo/videographers in mind. These new cards are best for storing high quality video from smartphones, action cameras, drones and other devices even in extreme conditions.

The Pro Plus and Evo Plus microSD cards provide six-proof protection, that’s two additional layers of protection compared to the previous generation. They can withstand x-ray, wear out, drops, magnetic impact, water and extreme temperatures all while providing a 10-year limited warranty.

The Pro Plus microSD cards are available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities with read and write speeds of up to 160MB/s and 120MB/s. The Evo Plus microSD cards are meant for casual readers with transfer speeds of up to 130MB/s. That’s a 1.3x speed improvement compared to the earlier model. These cards are available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities.

Both feature a new Blue Wave design for a fresh look. An SD adaptor will ship with the box so that the cards can be used across a wide range of devices. These microSD cards will be available for purchase next month. Prices start at $18.99.

The Pro Plus and EVO Plus SD cards also have similar read and write speeds as the microSD versions. They effortlessly work with a wide range of devices like mirrorless and compact cameras, DSLRs, PCs and camcorders.

They also come with a V30 video speed class rating for 4K UHD content capture. The Evo Plus SD cards are available in 32GB to 256GB and the Pro Plus cards in 32GB to 512GB capacities. Prices start at $8.99.
