Do you ever feel the need to have more storage on your mobile device than your notebook? There are plenty of microSD cards that can make that happen currently but the storage capacity of these cards is only set to grow. Both Micron and Western Digital’s SanDisk have launched new microSD cards at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona that boast 1 terabyte of storage.
It wasn’t long ago when Samsung boasted about putting 1 terabyte of storage in your pocket through a combination of 512GB internal storage on the Galaxy Note 9 and its support for 512GB microSD cards. Samsung has now launched a variant of the Galaxy S10+ with 1TB of internal storage six months after unveiling the Galaxy Note 9.
Western Digital claims that the SanDisk UHS-I microSDXC card boasts 160MB/s read speed and 90MB/s write speed. Micron’s figures come in at 100MB/s read and 95MB/s write. It goes without saying that both of these cards are going to cost a pretty penny.
SanDisk is going to start selling its card from April for $449.99. It also has a new 512GB card in the same line for $199.99. Micron hasn’t confirmed the price as yet for its UHS-I microSDXC card but it does mention that the card will be out in the second half of this year.
