Samsung today announced that this month in Taiwan, it is introducing premium Samsung memory cards for sale. In previous years, Samsung manufactured 'white-label' digital memory cards for a variety of leading electronics companies and memory card companies.

Samsung's new premium Plus memory cards, which comply with the Secure Digital class 6 ratings for performance, are available in SD, microSD and Compact Flash (CF) formats with densities of 4-gigabytes (GBs) and 8GBs, with a 16GB density for an SD Plus card.
The new Samsung memory cards are shock-resistant, water-resistant and protected from damage caused by magnetic interference. Samsung actually did a great job on the design of the new cards. The SDHC card is a real stunner. The question will be what the premium will be we have to pay on these beauties.

Samsung memory cards feature a modern brushed silver metallic design or a natural beige epoxy compound casing, and full compatibility with devices that have memory card slots. Most of the premium Plus memory cards can read data at 17MB/s (megabytes per second), though the CF cards provide read speeds of up to 45MB/s.

The new Samsung memory cards are available in Taiwan this month, with sales in other select countries likely to follow at a later date.
