Alongside the anticipated Huawei phones that were announced earlier today, the company also had another interesting addition to bring to the table: an expandable storage that they are calling Nano Memory (NM). It replaces the familiar microSD card in both of their new flagship phones, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.
According to Huawei, the cards are 45% smaller than the usual microSD cards and, on the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, you will have the choice between two nanoSIM cards or you can swap one of them out for a NM card, saving a bit of space. The NM cards will allegedly come with at least 256GB of storage and a 90MB/s transfer speed.
For now, the NM card is only available to Huawei so it will be interesting to see if they expand to other companies and become the new standard.
At the moment though, everything else is a mystery – there is no hint about the pricing or the availability of the cards but we can imagine that, being a novelty, they won’t come as cheap as the microSD ones.
