Samsung and SanDisk are looking to one-up each other when it comes to expandable memory for smartphones and any other device that supports a microSD card. SanDisk made a 200GB card last year that is quite affordable, and then Samsung came up with a 256GB model. A few weeks ago, SanDisk matched Samsung’s 256GB card with two new microSD options of its own, both more affordable than Samsung’s card. But Samsung stepped up its game and killed the microSD card completely.
The company’s latest memory offering is a UFS
2.0 1.0 storage solution that will work with any device that has microSDXC support future devices that can support expandable storage, but it offers the same lightning-fast storage experience as the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7. In fact, these new cards are just as fast as SSD drives.
