SanDisk kicked off Mobile World Congress in Barcelona by launching the 200GB* SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card. Keeping pace with the demands of mobile users, the new card provides the ability to capture, save and share photos, videos and other files without worrying about storage limitations. 

The capacity breakthrough by leveraging the proprietary technology developed last year for the 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card, and creating a new design and production process that allows for more bits per die. 

“We continue to push technology boundaries to deliver record-breaking solutions that transform the way consumers use their mobile devices,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product marketing, SanDisk. “By focusing on achieving new capacity and speed milestones, we are able to deliver trusted mobile memory solutions that give consumers the freedom to never stop capturing, saving, or sharing – with the benefit of fast speeds to transfer it all quickly.” 

Ideal for Android smartphone and tablet users, this Premium Edition microSD card combines 

the world’s highest capacity and a fast transfer speed of up to 90MB/s to deliver premium performance.  At this transfer speed, consumers can expect to move up to 1,200 photos per minute2

Through SanDisk’s updated Memory Zone app users will have even greater control over their mobile device's memory storage.

In the Memory Zone app, users can engage the OptiMem app feature which monitors the phone’s memory levels to inform users whenever the internal memory falls below a user-defined threshold. Once this threshold is reached, the OptiMem app feature will automatically transfer some of their old photos and videos to their microSD card, leaving them with more internal memory to continue making memories.

The app, available for free download from the Google Play store, is compatible with most Android-powered devices and allows users to easily locate, organize, transfer and back up data.
