Sandisk has made a 200GB MicroSD card for your phone
With the rise in technological advancements and rapid generation of content, the need for larger storage became a concern as well. But even with the advancements we have made, SanDisk’s latest feat is one which still wows. They have managed somehow to shove 200GB of memory into a MicroSD card! In case you are wondering, that’s a 56% jump on the current highest capacity MicroSD, a 128GB card.
SanDisk said it managed to produce the higher capacity MicroSD card by using a proprietary design and production process that allows for more bits of memory per chip.
Memory chips are typically sized in powers of 2, with steps such as 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. Keeping that pattern would result in a 256GB chip, but it appears SanDisk wasn’t able to do that. Instead, it settled for 200GB.
That’s not to take away from the company’s development work. Fitting that much storage on a card the size of a fingernail is a massive achievement. Now you get 200GB MicroSD card
The card supports data transfer at up to 90MB per second, or around 1,200 photos per minute.
So what’s the catch? Well none really, if you have the cash to spare. The 200GB MicroSD card is said to be priced at $400 which is roughly N84,000. (How much did you buy the device you would be putting the card on again?). It would be available for purchase worldwide in the second quarter of the year.
