SanDisk released the world’s highest capacity microSD card to date: the 400GB SanDisk microSDXC Ultra UHS-I card. It’s targeted at mobile users who have a lot of data to store on their smartphones, including high-res photos and videos. The card comes about a year after SanDisk previously broke records by creating a 256GB microSD card that was the world’s fastest of its size.
This time around, this new Class 10 card looks pretty robust, too: it’s water, shock, temperature, and even X-ray proof.
The new microSD card is ideal for Android smartphone users and can hold up to 40 hours of Full HD video. The transfer times are fast too, with a read speed of 100 MB/s (that’s about 1,200 5MB photos per minute) and write speed of 10 MB/s. The card is also said to load apps faster, thanks to its adherence to the A1 App Performance Class specification.
The 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card comes with a 10-year warranty and SD adapter (for using it as a standard SD card) and is available on the SanDisk website and through retailers such as B&H for $250.
