SanDisk, a major media storage company, has unveiled a new record-breaking microSD coming to market, which will deliver so much storage that one might be at a loss as to what to do with all that space! The new “400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I” memory card is the world’s highest capacity card of its type, and is ideally suited for use in Android smartphones and other modern devices that feature a storage expansion slot.
Android’s most recent versions allow you to adopt microSD-based storage as “native internal” storage, which allows you to use it to install apps, store photos and more as if you were using a built-in flash memory drive. Most recent Android devices that offer a microSD slot will most likely support the new 400GB chip out of the box, meaning you can get your phone up to almost double what the top-end iPhone devices currently offers in onboard storage, which is quite fantastic stuff, if you ask me.
The SanDisk 400gb microSD card can hold up to 40 hours of 1080p HD video, tens of thousands of HD photos, other media files in really large quantities and offers transfer speeds of up to 100mb/s. Technologically, It’s designed to comply with the A1 App Performance Class specification for flash memory, which means it can load and run apps faster when operating as adopted internal storage.
Even though it offers so much added storage, the price won’t break the bank much if you are in the United States – at $250, it’s actually very reasonable for in terms of price to storage ratio. But for people patronizing the Nigerian market, you will have to squeeze out over N90,000 for the accessory (blames squarely on the national fx situations).
It comes with a 10-year limited manufacturer’s warranty, and should be available soon via SanDisk directly and all major retailers accross markets worldwide. This could be a perfect partner for the new Galaxy Note 8, if you happen to be picking one of those up anytime soon.
