SanDisk Reveals 200 GB MicroSD Card at MWC 2015

Just how much storage space do you need on a MicroSD card? SanDisk (NASDAQ: SNDK) is hoping 200 GB.

That’s the size of the memory card it introduced at this year’s Mobile World Congress.

In a statement SanDisk said that it was able to develop this super sized MicroSD by leveraging the proprietary technology developed last year for the 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card, and creating a new design and production process that allows for more bits per die.

The card supports transfer speeds of up to 90 MB/s.

The card will be available next quarter for a price of $400.

Unfortunately for those that will be buying a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, you are out of luck. Neither of these phones support SD cards.
