Samsung is launching a record-setting 256GB microSD card. Named the EVO Plus, it offers 95MB/s read speeds and 90MB/s write speeds, which the company says means it's up to the task of 4K, virtual reality, and gaming content.

The price tag is steep, naturally: $249.99. However, you get a little insurance with your purchase, courtesy of a limited 10-year warranty available in more than 50 countries, including the USA and Europe.

The EVO Plus 256GB launches in June.
