  • Samsung is set to release its 512GB microSD memory card.

  • Samsung is currently selling some of its other microSD cards at a heavily reduced price.

Those waiting for Samsung’s 512GB microSD card may not have to wait much longer as the company has listed the card on its official website in Germany. Spotted by AllAboutSamsung (via SamMobile), the listing suggests it will cost 289.90 euros when it goes up for sale.

The 289.90 euro price tag in Germany is quite a step up from the price of the 256BG version of the card. This currently costs only 99 euros in Germany or $109.99 in the U.S, making double the capacity close to three times the cost. The card is also listed on the U.S. version of the Samsung website, but as yet we haven’t seen a price, or an indication as to when it will be on sale.

The card will be part of Samsung’s Evo Plus range of expandable storage, boasting read speeds of up to 100MB per second and a write speed of up to 90MB per second. If Samsung’s other Evo Plus microSD cards are any indication, it will also have a 10-year warranty and be water resistant.
