You Can Now Buy the First 1TB microSD Card

Want to shoot high-res photos and 4K video all day on a single microSD card? SanDisk just launched the world’s first 1 terabyte microSD card.

With a UHS speed class of 3 (U3) and a video speed class of 30 (V30), the card is ready to handle 4K UHD video recording.

The monstrous card features read speed of up to 160MB/s (“to save time transferring high-res images and 4K UHD video,” SanDisk says) and write speeds of up to 90MB/s (for fast shooting).

It’s also a card that can take quite a beating: SanDisk says it was built to be temperature-proof, water-proof, shock-proof, and X-ray proof.

The card’s microSD form is ideal for smartphones, action cameras, and drones, but you can also pair it with an adapter to use it as a standard SD-format card.

As you might expect, though, the card will cost you a pretty penny: it’s being sold through SanDisk’s online store and Amazon with a price tag of $450.
