SanDisk launches 400GB Ultra microSD card for Android users and iXpand Base for iPhones

SanDisk 400GB Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card

Officially announced in August, SanDisk’s 400GB Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card is finally available in Singapore.

The 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSD card is said to be the largest capacity microSD card in the world. In case you were wondering, 400GB is enough to hold 40 hours of Full-HD videos or roughly 120,000 high-res photos.

In addition, it supports transfer speeds of up to 100MB/s, which means you can move up to 1,200 photos a minute. It is also fast enough to record Full-HD videos.

The 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card is also classified as an App Performance Class A1 device. This means Android users can install apps on it and it should run briskly.

The 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card is available now at Challenger and Mustafa and is priced at S$459. It also features a 10-year long warranty.

SanDisk iXpand Base

The SanDisk iXpand Base is a nifty little device that charges and backs up your iPhone at the same time.

The size of a small box, the iXpand Base features a USB port for users to connect their iPhones. When connected, the iXpand Base automatically charges and backs up photos, videos, and contacts on the iPhone.

The iXpand Base charges with 15W of power (Apple provides a 5W charger) so charging times should be significantly reduced.

To access content that is saved onto the iXpand Base, users can either attach a micro-USB cable to the iXpand Base or simply remove the SD card, onto which backups are stored, and plug it into a computer. Alternatively, you can also use the iXpand Base app.

One thing to note is that the iXpand Base only backs up your photos, videos, and contacts, and not your apps or other data. For a full device backup, you should still use iTunes or third-party iOS backup apps like iMazing.

The iXpand Base is available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities points. Prices are S$139, S$199, and S$299 respectively.
