At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 held at the Center de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona (CCIB) in Barcelona. Micron and Sandisk have both unveiled their latest UHS-I microSDXC offerings, doubling the memory capacity of the microSD cards available on the market today with the world’s first 1-terabyte microSD cards, and if you have a DAP or smartphone that supports them, you can get one and tremendously increase the storage capacity. Think 2TB on the dual memory card slot of the FiiO X5III or the FiiO X7 Mark II.
Performance wise, the specifications from Sandisk has a more impressive read speed of up to 160MB/s in comparison with the 100MB/s by Micron. However, Micron’s write speed of up to 95MB/s is 5MB/s faster than that of Sandisk.
The SanDisk card will be available from April for USD 449.99, with an updated 512GB offering in the same line for USD 199.99.
Pricing for the Micron card has yet to be announced, but a spokesperson has shared with Porta-Fi that it will be “priced competitively” when it’s released in the second quarter of this year.
