Alongside the new line of smartphones that Huawei launched at their big event in London, was the unveiling of a new memory card format – called the Nano Memory Card, or also known as NM card.
This new card will replace the traditional micro SD card in the recently announced Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. Also confirmed during the event was that Huawei has collaborated with Toshiba, who has promised to manufacture the new NM cards.
The new memory card format will go in one of the slots on the dual-SIM tray available on the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. The dual-SIM card tray gives users the ability to choose between either more storage or a second SIM card.
We’ve accumulated all the details we know so far. So carry on reading to find out more about the new Nano Memory Card.
NM Card size:
Identical in size and shape to a Nano SIM card, Huawei has stated that the NM cards will be 45% smaller than a standard microSD card.
NM Card capacity:
The new flagship phones can support a Nano memory card of up to 256GB of storage capacity and with the cards featuring transfer speeds up to 90MB/s.
NM Card standard:
There is an assumption that the Nano-Memory card is merely a new shape for a micro SD card, which in theory would enable it to be used in other devices via an adaptor. However, so far there has been no indication as to whether the brand plans to introduce this card as a new industry standard for a storage format or if it will be used by other smartphone manufacturers.
Pricing and availability:
The new Nano Memory Cards from Huawei are available to purchase from MyMemory, so head on over to our website now.
