SanDisk has just unveiled a new 200GB microSD XC card just before the MWC event kicks off in Barcelona. There aren’t a lot of phones in the market today that can support 200GB microSD XC cards, so compatibility should be limited to devices like cameras.
SanDisk mentions that this tiny 200GB microSD card will go up for sale starting Q2 2015 with an asking price of $399.99. With the likes of the Galaxy S6 not supporting microSD cards henceforth, SanDisk’s only option will be other devices.
SanDisk’s largest microSD XC card on offer today has a capacity of 128GB, with a price tag of $99.99. So this is a significant boost in storage. However, we’re not sure if an extra few gigabytes of storage warrants a $300 bump on the asking price. We hope SanDisk rethinks the pricing of this microSD card to make it more appealing to the customers. This is assuming that the card will have any compatible devices by then.
