Samsung launches super Fast Memory Card for fourth generation Smartphones
Samsung Announced yesterday that it has launches a new series of Super Fast Class 10 32GB MicroSD Cards for fourth generation Smartphones. Incorporating 3-Bit NAND Flash, these MicroSD Cards offers a 12MB/s writing speed and 24MB/s maximum reading speed. While there are not exact date available on these cards will be available on the market and at what cost, Samsung however announced that they will launch a 64GB version of these microSD cards as early as next year.
“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,” said Wanhoon Hong, executive vice president, memory sales & marketing, Samsung Electronics. ”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.”
The new 32GB microSD cards 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. 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.
The new card follows the introduction of Samsung’s 30 nanometer (nm) class*, 32 gigabit (Gb) 3-bit-per-cell (3-bit) NAND-based 32 gigabyte (GB) microSD cards in February 2010. By applying the finer 20-nm-class process technology, the productivity of the chips is raised over 30 percent.
As an industry pioneer, Samsung plans to continue to aggressively introduce new NAND-based mobile memory solutions for timely market adoption. Mass production of its 20nm-class 64Gb 3-bit NAND designed on advanced toggle NAND architecture is anticipated for early next year.
