Smartphone owners have been looking for as much expandable storage as possible that was considered by an affordable 200GB SD card from SanDisk, but to increase its capacity and become an envy to iPhone, Samsung just came up with a microSD card that’s able to deliver even more storage space for your Galaxy S7 or any other device that supports expandable memory. This new 256GB EVO Plus card from Samsung offers the highest capacity in its class.

Samsung has finally announced the plans to release the EVO Plus 256GB microSD card, that can store up to 12 hours of 4K UHD videos or 33 hours of Full HD video recording.
