Micron said it meets the A2 App Performance Class specification for Android Adoptable storage, meaning app and game files on the card load faster. The cards are rated for up to 100 MB/s sequential write speed and up to 95 MB/s sequential read speed (the 128 GB version may be a bit slower).

Western Digital's 1TB MicroSD will drop in April for $449.99. They can also be used in regular memory card slots via simple adaptors, so transferring images and video from microSD cards to computers with SD card slots is straightforward.

Two brand new microSD cards, both boasting a whopping 1TB of storage space, have been officially unveiled today. These tiny storage cards can hold up to 500 hours of HD movies, tens of thousands of high-quality photos, and up to 200,000 songs.

Different types of microSD cards such as microSD HC, XC and UC Express, will become available in the future.

Micron has not yet revealed the price of its 1TB microSD card, but it will be available in the second quarter of 2019.

Let's face it: Unless you shoot tons of video on your phone, you probably don't need a 1TB microSD card.

Properly equipped phones are required to reach the speeds indicated by SanDisk and Micron.

SanDisk also announced a new 512GB Extreme UHS-I microSD card which will be priced at $199.99 and will also be released in April. In particular, Micron says that its 96-layers 3D QLC memory can bear 1500 program/erase cycles (with a particular controller), which should be plenty sufficient for most consumer workloads. Both versions are available for pre-order on SanDisk.com. The SanDisk Extreme UHS-1 microSDXCcan reach data read speeds of up to 160 MB/second or about 70 percent faster than the older UHS-1 microSD cards.
