Yes, you heard that right! It was in November 2017 only, when we heard about SanDisk unveiling the world's highest capacity 400GB microSD card. The world record feat beat's SanDisk's most recent 400GB card (it's $250). It also meets V10 standards for video transfer rates, so it's designed for capturing full HD video.
There's now a microSD card capable of holding over half a terabyte of data.
The new Integral's microSD card comes with firmware number SDXC UHS-I U1.
Onto the performance claims, with transfer speeds quoted. In fact, according to our best guess using this list, you likely could download the entire current Nintendo Switch library to this card-and still have about 50 GB to spare.
World's Highest Capacity 512 GB microSD Card To Go On Sale This February
"Consumers have been clear in their call for increased storage, as mobile devices have become essential to many in everyday life", said James Danton, marketing manager at Integral Memory. But it'll definitely give you bragging rights that you'll have the storage capacity of a small laptop in a card that's the same size as a penny - plus you'd never have to worry about running out of storage ever again. As we know that people are using different types of Cloud Storage applications to store their data over the cloud instead of storing them on their device.
The Integral Memory 512GB microSD card will be available from February. But storage continues to get cheaper every year, so microSD cards of similar capacities will probably be widespread after a few years. It's compatible with all Android smartphones and tablets capable of handling 512MB and above expandable storage. A memory card allows users to upgrade part of the phone rather than buying a new one.
The global SD memory card market has gotten a major push from the advancement in imaging technology, seasonal sales of mobile devices and increasing availability of rich multimedia content. The final confirmation about its pricing is yet to be released by the company.
