If you haven’t noticed, a few of the latest and greatest smartphones are sporting microSD card slots that can accept memory up to 128GB. The newly-announced Samsung Galaxy S5 is one such smartphone (be sure to check out our hands-on). The only problem is there hasn’t been a 128GB microSD card to buy in the market… until today.
SanDisk has announced the world’s first 128GB microSD card. The product itself is self-explanatory: you stick it into your phone, drop loads of songs, movies, and photos on it, and do that until you fill it up. Except, of course, it’d be very hard for most people to fill up 128GB of data on a mobile phone (unless they shoot a lot of 4K videos and have absolutely steered clear of music streaming services).
Beyond the chip’s capacity, its class 10 classification means you’ll be seeing read speeds of up to 30 megabytes per second. The price is going to repel quite a few bit people, most likely — $200, if your pocketbooks can handle it. You’ll be able to snap them up from Amazon and Best Buy right away, so hop to it if 64GB isn’t enough and you anticipate you’ll be grabbing a smartphone that supports it.
