  • 1TB MicroSD

Both brands unveiled microSD cards with a whopping 1TB of storage - that's a million megabytes, fact fans - this morning at MWC. I guess someone should tell the guys at SanDisk and Micron that the world is now preferring cloud storage over local storage. Officially dubbed the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card (which is quite the mouthful), prospective buyers might want to start saving now, because it certainly has the price tag to match its high capacity and potential transfer speeds.

WD's SanDisk's UHS-I microSDXC, meanwhile, boasts "up to" speeds of 160MB/s reads and 90MB/s writes. Now, you can add an unprecedented amount of storage to your devices, provided there's a microSD card slot.

If you're anxious that this kind of high capacity won't come cheap, then you'd be right, with the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC costing $449.99 (around £340, AU$630) when it hits shops in April.

The US pricing for this one has been announced at $449.99 ($199.99 for the 512GB) and is slated for an April release.

The faster speeds may improve the gaming experience, the recording of 4K or virtual reality videos, and anything else that benefits from fast read or write speeds.

As time goes on, you can safely assume that digital storage will increase but also become smaller in size. The cards reach these record-breaking speeds by leveraging Western Digital's proprietary flash technology.

The card we're talking about right now is the SanDisk 400GB Extreme microSD card. 2019 in Barcelona, the SD Association has announced a new storage format for smartphones which are supposedly the "fastest memory cards for mobile devices". This still meets UHS-I Speed Class 3 and Video Speed Class 30 specifications. SanDisk has committed to launching its card in April, and it's already available for pre-order from SanDisk's web site. But in terms of capacity, as long as they can get the price point low enough, they'll be very versatile cards.
