MWC: Fastest 1TB microSD unveiled

As consumer demand for high-quality content continues to rise, Western Digital is enabling a bigger, faster experience with products that give consumers the best combination of performance and capacity. At Mobile World Congress, the company is showcasing the world’s fastest 1TB UHS-I microSD flash memory card, the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card.

The new card features higher speed and capacity for capturing and moving massive amounts of high-quality photos and videos on smartphones, drones and action cameras. These impressive levels of capacity and speed give consumers the ability to capture more content than before, and makes it less likely that they would worry about space limitations or long transfer times.

Today’s smartphones and cameras allow consumers to create high-quality content in the palm of their hands, thanks to features like multi-lenses, burst mode capabilities and 4K resolution. Western Digital continues to deliver the most advanced solutions to ensure consumers can reliably capture and share moment or create video content for personal or professional use.

Brian Pridgeon, director of marketing for SanDisk, at Western Digital said: “People trust SanDisk-brand cards to capture and preserve their world. Our goal is to deliver the best possible experience so consumers can share the content that’s important to them.”

Designed to help move tons of high-quality content faster than ever, the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSD card reaches speeds up to 160MB/s. This new card allows consumers to transfer files in nearly half the time over standard UHS-I microSD cards currently on the market. The cards reach these record-breaking speeds by leveraging Western Digital’s proprietary flash technology. The new SanDisk Extreme card will also be available in 512GB capacity, and will feature the A2 specification for launching and loading apps at blazing speeds. The 1TB and 512GB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSD cards are available for pre-order now on, and will be available at retailers in April 2019. The cards will be priced at U.S. recommended prices are $449.99 and $199.99, respectively.
