SanDisk has announced the world’s largest capacity microSD card, named SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I.
The new memory card has a capacity of 128GB, making the largest in the world, the leading flash storage solutions provider says.
According to SanDisk, consumers can now use their phones and tablets as if storage limitations were never a concern, allowing users to capture thousands of songs and photos, and hours of video on a single, removable card. Up to16 hours of Full HD video or 7,500 songs or 3,200 photos and more than 125 apps can be stored on the removable card.
Stuart Robinson, Director, Handset Component Technologies, Strategy Analytics says “SanDisk’s high-performance 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC memory card will reshape the way users interact with their devices. Until now, consumers had to spread out their content between multiple products because the memory on those devices was not able to hold enough data in one place. This 128GB microSD card is going to be popular as the preferred removable storage option, giving users fast, secure and reliable access to their personal data archives.”
Christopher Chute, research director, Worldwide Digital Imaging, IDC says “The technology used to design the 128GB Ultra microSDXC card is well in line with what mobile users expect, and demonstrates SanDisk’s commitment to mobility. Being able to fit this much capacity into a microSD card smaller than a fingernail is a game changer, and expands the possibilities of what people can do with their mobile devices. The 128GB Ultra microSDXC card frees users from constant concerns around storage limitations.”
