Samsung starts mass production of 128GB memory cards for mobile devices

Samsung has reportedly started mass producing its upcoming 128GB eMMC Pro memory cards for mobile devices. The new storage cards, announced as the industry's first of its kind at the Samsung Mobile Solution Forum 2012, are built based on 20nm technology and offer read/write speeds of 140MB/s and 50MB/s, respectively. That's about five times faster than today's class 10 microSD cards.
