Samsung MicroSD Cards for LTE Smartphones and Tablets

Samsung Electronics, which offers advanced memory technology, says that it is now mass producing Ultra High Speed–1 (UHS-1) interface microSD cards that support the highest performance levels required on advanced LTE (Long Term Evolution) smartphones and tablets. It was announced Wednesday, April 4.

“MicroSD cards with a UHS-1 interface offer users an extremely high level of performance on their LTE smartphones and for other advanced mobile applications. This allows them to enjoy high-quality images and video playback directly from the memory cards,” said Wanhoon Hong, executive vice president, memory sales & marketing, Samsung Electronics.

The new UHS-1 memory card comes in a 16 gigabyte (GB) density. It is comprised of Samsung’s 20 nanometer-class 64 gigabit (Gb) toggle DDR 2.0 devices and an advanced Samsung controller supporting the ultra fast UHS-1 interface.

According to internal tests, the new 16GB UHS-1 microSD card has a maximum sequential read speed of 80 megabytes per second (MB/s). This is more than four times the read speed of today’s advanced microSD cards, which operate at 21MB/s, says the company.

Initial production of the 16GB UHS-1 microSD cards began late last month. In the future, Samsung plans to expand its microSD card offerings with higher density solutions.

    on my laptop when i put the memory card in and go to MY COMPUTER, it does not bring the memory card up under REMOVABLE disks/storage. i clicked on LOCAL DRIVE and it said something about Samsung MicroSD so i figured that was where i will copy the music to. However, after i copied all the music to the card and but the card back into my phone, it said there was nothing on it. How do i get it to work?
