Micron and Western Digital announce 1TB microSD cards at MWC 2019

The 1TB* SanDisk Extreme® UHS-I microSDXC™ card.

1TB microSD cards are officially here with two launches from Micron and Western Digital at Mobile World Congress 2019. 

Micron announced the c200 1TB microSDXC UHS-I card, which is the world's first microSD card on the market to use its 96-layer 3D quad-level cell (QLC) NAND technology. It delivers up to 100MB per second read and 95MB per second write performance speeds, making the card optimal for 4K video recording, game consoles and burst-mode photography. Pricing is not available at the moment and Micron states that its 1TB microSD cards will hit retail shelves in Q2. 

Shortly after Micron's announcement, Western Digital also unveiled the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSD which it claims to be the world's fastest with up to 160MB/s read speed and up to 90MB/s write speed. There is also a 512GB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSD card. 

The 1TB and 512GB SanDisk microSD cards are available for pre-order now on and will be available in retail stores in April. The 1TB and 512GB microSD cards are priced at US$449.99 (~S$607) and US$199.99 (~S$270) respectively.
