MWC 2019 continues to break massive news with the recent announcement of the world’s first 1-terabyte microSD cards. Barely the size of a fingernail, these tiny cards can hold up to 500 hours of HD movies and up to 200,000 songs. Not to mention innumerable pictures for even the most selfie-obsessed.
The cards, debuted by Micron and Western Digital’s SanDisk, are both UHS-I microSDXC products. Western Digital say its card can reach up to 160MB/s read speed. The Micron can hit a respectable 100MB/s.
Going on sale in April, and at $450 for the SanDisk card, consumers might well have to decide whether it’s a fair price to pay to boost their smartphone storage. SanDisk’s 512GB card will sell for $199.99.
The Micron card, which features its latest 96-layer 3D quad-cell QLC NAND tech, will go on sale in the second quarter of 2019.
Micron are yet to reveal its pricing but reports suggested the cards will be priced “competitively.”
