This MicroSD Card Packs Massive Capacity into a Minute Form Factor

By Andrew Tarantola on at

At the company's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, SanDisk announced the single largest-capacity MicroSD card ever created. This tiny storage medium offers an unprecedented 128GB of space, but don't expect it to come cheap.

The 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I memory card provides desktop computer amounts of storage in your mobile device—thousands of hours of music and hundreds of hours of video. The need for cloud storage options to supplement the paltry 16 - 32GB of local hard drive space have suddenly become a moot point. This breakthrough marks a magnitude increase in storage since the first Micro SD card hit the market a decade ago with just 128MB of space.

What's more, the new MicroSD card will include access to a new version of the SanDisk Memory Zone app which enables users to view, access, and backup locally stored files from a mobile device's internal storage, transferring them to the the new card.

They'll retail for between 17 Euros and 150 Euros, in capacities from 8GB to 128GB.
