Samsung starts production of 32GB microSD cards with 12MBps write and 24MBps read speeds

Samsung announced production of its new line of microSD cards with advanced data transfer speeds, made to support the performance requirements of modern smartphones. The new 20-nanometer-class 32GB microSD cards have a class 10 speed rating suitable for transmission of full HD video. In other words, they can write at 12 megabytes per second (MB/s) and read at 24MB/s, providing users with more than double the maximum write speeds of a class 4 rated 32GB microSD card.

Specs wise, the new 32GB memory card incorporates 32GB 3-bit NAND flash memory chips and a proprietary 3-bit NAND controller to deliver the high performance.

To sum things up – Samsung’s new faster 32GB cards are coming soon. The 64GB version will follow at some point next year…

Commenting on the news, Samsung Electronics’ Wanhoon Hong said: “The industry demand for high-class-rated memory cards addresses the growing performance push for next generation mobile applications in more advanced smartphones including 4G models. As the industry adopts microSD cards with a class 10 rating, the superior data transfer speeds are expected to improve the mobile user experience tremendously.”
