You Can Now Buy Sandisk’s Massive (Yet Tiny) 200GB MicroSD for Rs. 15,250
SanDisk’s mammoth 200 GB microSD card, which caused a bit of a stir at MWC in Barcelona this year, is finally up for grabs. Pushing the limits of portable storage, the device has a massive storage capacity of 200GB and is claimed to have a transfer rate of 90MB per sec, or 1,200 photos per minute. As a Class 10 memory card, it is presumably geared towards photographers and filmmakers who need more space than other SD cards can typically provide.
The microSD card is also waterproof, temperature proof, shockproof, X-ray proof, and magnet proof.
Commenting on the launch, Dinesh Bahal, Vice President, Product Marketing, SanDisk, said;
We continue to push technology boundaries to deliver record-breaking solutions that transform the way consumers use their mobile devices. By focusing on achieving new capacity and speed milestones, we are able to deliver trusted mobile memory solutions that give consumers the freedom to never stop capturing, saving, or sharing – with the benefit of fast speeds to transfer it all quickly.
Now, we are aware that many phone manufacturers have limited the size capacity of their devices. For example, the LG G4 can carry up to 2TB of data while the Zenfone 2 can support up to 64GB. Most smartphones only list a maximum of 128GB Micro SD card storage, but there are several which push the limit. That means users who want to add more data storage to devices like the LG G4, HTC One M9+ and HTC One ME (which come with the 2TB of expandable storage option), should be able to use the new 200GB Micro SD card easily.
Imagine the number of movies your smartphone will be able to hold.
For now, the microSD card is up on Amazon for a prize of $240 (Approx. Rs 15,250) and is backed by a ten-year limited warranty. The e-commerce website is shipping to most parts of India.
