SanDisk launched two new 256GB microSD cards, with one it claims is the fastest in its class – the 256GB SanDisk Extreme microSDXC UHS-1. The company also developed the 256GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-1 Premium Edition.
The 256GB SanDisk Extreme microSDXC UHS-1 provides transfer speeds of up to 100MB/s and write speeds of up to 90MB/s. The 256GB SanDisk Extreme microSDXC UHS-I card is projected to store up to 14 hours of 4K recording from smart phones or camera said by Western Digital-owned Company.
Samsung announced its Evo Plus 256GB microSD card offers the highest external memory for smartphone, tablets, and other compatible devices. Before the launch of Samsung’s card, SanDisk’s 200GB microSD card was the maximum capacity external memory offering in the market.
The 256GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card Premium Edition provides transfer speeds of up to 95Mbps. Both the cards are waterproof and also temperature-proof and shock proof.
Both cards will be available worldwide, SanDisk said, with the extreme version priced at USD 199.99 and becoming available in Q4 2016, and the Ultra version priced at USD 149.99 and becoming available in August.
