  • Perfect for Shooting Photos, Video; Expandable Storage for
    Mobile Devices

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston
Technology Company, Inc., 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
Annette Chan, Flash memory business manager, 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 initially at Microsoft
stores
in the United States with additional outlets coming later
this quarter. It ships as a stand-alone card or with an SD card adapter
in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities. Kingston recommends its latest

for best card transfer speeds to and from a computer. The
