Samsung today announced 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. 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. The initial production of the 16GB UHS-1 microSD cards began late last month.
