At MWC 2015 this week SanDIsk made an interesting unveiling, revealing their latest microSD card which claims to be the world’s largest microSD card.
To get that title SanDisk have fitted the memory card with 200GB of storage, which is nearly double the size of SanDisk’s previously large microSD card offering, which had 128GB of storage.
This new card has been dubbed the SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Premium Edition, and offers transfer speeds of 90MB/sec, which means that it would only take 35 minutes to fill the entirety of the 200GB capacity.
The only problem is that the microSD card will only be compatible with Android smartphones and tablets.
Christopher Chute, Vice President, Worldwide Digital Imaging Practice, IDC explains more with the following statement:
“Mobile devices are completely changing the game. Seven out of 10 images captured by consumers are now from smartphones and tablets. Consumers view mobile-first devices as their primary means for image capture and sharing, and by 2019 smartphones and tablets will account for nine out of 10 images captured,”-“As the needs of mobile users continue to change, SanDisk is on the forefront of delivering solutions for these demands as is clearly illustrated through their growing portfolio of innovative products, including the new 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card.”
The SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Premium Edition will launch in the coming months for $400.
