Today Western Digital and SanDisk launched the “world’s highest-capacity microSD card” with an incredible 400GB of storage. That’s double the previous record held by SanDisk. With more devices supporting larger external storage than ever before, SanDisk is looking to meet the ever increasing demands of users with today’s announcement. For example, many of LG’s flagship devices would in theory support upwards of 2TB, if needed.
Western Digital claims that it was able to achieve this larger capacity by developing a new proprietary technology and design. But that’s naturally going to come with a high price tag.

SanDisk’s new 400GB microSD card is set to retail for $249.99 and will ship with a ten-year warranty. It will hold up to 40 hours of full HD video with the capability of transferring content at speeds up to 100MB/s. SanDisk notes a real life example of 1,200 photos per minute.
Designed with Android users in mind, SanDisk has updated its Memory Zone app as well to offer “enhanced” control over external storage. It’s a free download that’s available today in the Google Play Store.
