Micron releases world’s first 1TB microSD card

Micron releases world’s first 1TB microSD card

Even now with Samsung offering 1TB of in-built storage with its latest flagship smartphone - the Galaxy S10 Plus - microSD cards are making a statement of intent.

There are some differences between the two cards: Sandisk's is a little faster with up to 160MB/s read speeds and up to 90MB/s write speeds, while Micron's card can do up to 100MB/s and 95MB/s write speeds (note, however, that you have to take the companies' words for these speeds, they haven't been tested in the wild yet).

"The new c200 1TB microSD card gives consumers the freedom to capture, share, store and enjoy more content while supporting their mobile-centric lifestyles."

SanDisk's 1TB Extreme UHS-I microSD card will cost $450 when it becomes available in April, while Lexar's SD card is already available to buy for $499. The microSD card conforms to A2 App Performance Class, and is capable of leveraging Android Adoptable storage by enabling applications and games installed on the card to load faster. The Micron c200 1TB microSDXC UHS-I card uses Micron's 96-layer 3D quad-level NAND technology to achieve its high capacity.

Huawei's foldable phone: What we know so far
This article is breaking news - we'll be updating the article as Huawei CEO Richard Yu further details the hardware of the phone. Powered by the Kirin 980 , the device holds up with the best in the market in terms of processing power.

The cards in question come from Micron and SanDisk (which you can see for yourself up above).

4K support: Ready for 4K HDR capture/playback with UHS-1 Speed Class 3 and Video Speed Class 30 support. Micron hasn't yet announced pricing but we hope it will be lower as the company will release it by the summer, leaving early adopters to mass on the SanDisk's hefty price tag.

The price? Well, $499.99 for the 1TB SanDisk card, how about that? However, you'll have to wait for both as pre-orders have just started.
