The professional version of the new memory cards, the 'Pro" series, provides ultra high speed-1 (UHS-1)* performance and up to 64 gigabytes (GBs) of data storage. The full line-up includes the premium series 'Plus' and commercial series 'Standard.'

Samsung's new 64GB micro SD Pro series, utilizing its advanced semiconductor technology with 20 nanometer-class** NAND flash offers the highest levels of reliability against SD cards available in the market today and speed up to 70 Megabytes per second (MB/s)*** for read performance, making them three-times faster than the conventional micro SD cards,.

Such higher speeds and larger data storage space match the rapidly transforming user environment with the advent of LTE communication networks. The memory cards are designed to fully meet users" expectations for ultimate quality in accessing and storing large multimedia content of advanced quality such as full HD (1080p) videos.
