Recently, SanDisk announced its new microSD card of 200GB capacity for the people who require a lot of space to store data. The newly introduced card is named as SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card Premium Edition.

Microsoft Lumia 535, an entry-level mobile phone, also features a slot for a 128GB microSD card. SanDisk made it possible to develop a 200GB microSD card by using the technology of 128GB microSD card, and improving its blueprint making the card to install additional bits per die. With a 90Mbps transfer rate, in a minute customers can move 1200 photos.
Vice president of the SanDisk, Christopher Chute, stated that 70% of pictures captured today are done through a tablet or a smartphone. It is expected that by 2019, this percentage will reach 90% and for that users would need extra storage capacity. This is where SanDisk will be coming.
