SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – November 1, 2016 – As people nowadays rely more and more on mobile devices to take high-quality photos and videos, the need for higher capacity and reliable backup functionality is even more important. Kingston, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the addition of the 256GB capacity to its line of Class 10 UHS-I microSDHC / microSDXC cards. The large capacity and Class 10 UHS-I speed allows users to capture more photos (up to 64,000 12MP images) and HD videos (up to 976 minutes at 1080p 30 frames per second) without interruption*.

The microSDHC / microSDXC Class 10 UHS-I is the smallest form factor SD card available and is the standard expandable storage option for many tablets, smartphones and action cameras. It is ideal for cinema-quality HD (1080p) video1 and reduces buffer time between shots when compared to Class 4 cards. The versatile card can withstand harsh environments for adventurous travelers as it is waterproof2, temperature proof3, shock and vibration proof4 and X-ray proof5. Capacities of 16GB to 256GB make it easy to find the right card for one’s needs and provides space for thousands of hi-res photos and hours of video6.

“We are excited to ship our new higher capacity 256GB microSDXC card for consumers who need more storage for photos, videos and other data,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “As image quality and 4K content continues to rise, we strive to push storage densities higher to match our customers’ needs for larger capacity and stable products.”

Class 10 UHS-I microSDHC / microSDXC is available as a stand-alone card or with an SD card adapter in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities.
