SanDisk’s 400GB Ultra microSD is their highest capacity yet

Western Digital and SanDisk has announced “the world’s highest-capacity microSD card” with the new 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card.

The company has beat their own record of the world’s highest capacity microSD, previously they announced the 200GB SanDisk Ultra back in 2015.

Most flagship Android devices that have microSD slots have support for up to 2TB but no 2TB card exist but we’re slowly getting there.

“We continue to push technology boundaries and transform the way consumers use their mobile devices,” said Sven Rathjen, vice president, product marketing, Western Digital. “By focusing on achieving new technology milestones, we enable consumers to keep up with their mobile-centric lifestyles with storage solutions they trust.”

You can expect transfer speeds of up 100MB/s, with that speed, you can transfer up to 1,200 photos per minute. The new microSD card meets the A1 App Performance Class specification, so apps stored on the card will be able to load faster.

The 400GB SanDisk Ultra is available now in the US for $249.99 USD and we’ll update this post when we get Canadian pricing availability information. The new microSD card can be purchased from SanDisk.com and Amazon.com.
