Announced at Mobile World Congress, SanDisk is pushing the limits again. After announcing the SanDisk Ultra 400GB microSD card only 6 months ago, they’ve now announced a new Extreme Pro version with read and write speeds of up to 160MB/sec and 90MB/sec respectively. And while support will vary depending on the device you’re using, it seems squarely aimed at video and VR/AR creators, offering V30, U3 and A2 speed guarantees.
SanDisk took advantage of the Mobile World Congress, currently taking place in Barcelona, to unveil its latest record-breaking memory card.
The tiny, fingernail-sized, card can store up to 20 hours of Full HD video and transfer up to 1200 photos a minute.
Earlier today, the 2014 Mobile World Congress took place in Barcelona, and it came packed with quite a few noteworthy stories. Nokia announced the immediate release of not one, but three Android-powered mid-range smartphone models; HTC announced its next entry to the mid-range Desire, sporting a 13MP camera; Samsung – well – remained Samsung with its overall minor update to the Galaxy S line (but hey – maybe that’s just my inner design critic getting frustrated at how much hasn’t changed about the phone’s look). Even if the Galaxy S5’s been grabbing most of the headlines for MWC, Sony still ended up bringing itself a good amount of attention with the products it unveiled today,
Out of them, the Xperia Z2 was what garnered the most interest. Sony’s latest addition to the Xperia line comes in bold colors, as well as bold promises; the waterproof phone packs a 20.7 megapixel camera, one which the company is proudly calling the “world’s best mobile camera”.
