Devices that support external memories just got a huge boost thanks to Samsung’s latest product – the 256 GB EVO Plus microSD card. So if you didn’t know where to store those 12 hours of 4K video, you’re in luck.

The announcement is set to make those with no microSD support incredibly jealous, as this could prove to be insanely useful in the future, when high-quality videos will use up gigabytes of storage like they’re nothing. Here’s a full breakdown of the new device:

With this new microSD card powering your phone you can use cloud services like Google Photos or Dropbox to really just back up photos instead of using them to free up that extra bit of space on your phone. Let’s just hope that more phones will end up supporting 256 GB in storage space. The specs really lend themselves to newer generation devices:

“The EVO Plus 256GB raises the bar for capacity and performance of microSD cards thanks to Samsung’s advanced V-NAND technology, offering high read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively. This level of performance will provide general consumers and professionals with superb user convenience for storing heavy-loaded, high-resolution photography and 4K video recording, as well as graphic intensive multimedia like virtual reality (VR) and gaming.”

You can find Samsung’s newest microSD device in stores starting in June, and the suggested retail price is $250.
