SanDisk Corporation has released the new 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I memory card. Smaller than the size of a fingernail, the new microSDXC card enables consumers to use their phones and tablets to capture thousands of songs and photos, and hours of video on a single, removable card. To enable 128GB of storage on a removable microSD card, SanDisk developed a technique that allows for 16 memory die to be vertically stacked, each shaved to be thinner than a strand of hair.
Add Storage to Smartphone or Tablet
Designed for Android smartphones and tablets, the SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card provides consumers the highest storage capacity available in a removable form factor.
“With 128GB of removable storage, consumers will enjoy the freedom to capture and save whatever they want on a smartphone or tablet, without worrying about running out of storage space,” says Susan Park, director, retail product marketing, SanDisk.
Additional features of the new microSD card include:
- Read speeds up to 30MB/s
- Class 10 performance for recording Full HD video
- Waterproof, temperature-proof, X-ray-proof, magnet-proof, shockproof
- SD adapter included for compatibility with digital cameras
Free Up Internal Memory with SanDisk Memory Zone App
A new version of the SanDisk Memory Zone app (available on the Google Play store in beta) lets users view, access, and backup all of their files from their phone’s memory in one place. As a part of the SanDisk Memory Zone app, SanDisk is releasing OptiMem, a new feature that allows Android users to enhance their phone’s internal memory by automatically transferring some of their old photos and videos to their microSD card. OptiMem will monitor user’s mobile device memory levels, and inform them whenever the internal memory falls below a pre-defined threshold.
