SanDisk launches 200GB microSD card, iXpand Apple flash drive, Dual USB OTG, and Dual USB Type-C Flash Drive

The International Data Corporation estimates that, this year, the world will capture 1.12 trillion images using mobile devices alone. For those looking to be part of this clicker-happy phenomenon, SanDisk has added four new products to their mobile memory lineup so your phone will never run out of storage space. The newcomers to SanDisk’s portfolio are the 200GB (not a typo) microSD card, iXpand iPhone flash drive, Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0 for Android OTG, and a Dual Flash Drive with USB Type-C connector.

“As a global leader in flash storage solutions, SanDisk is well-positioned to offer mobile memory solutions for varying consumer needs,” said Candy Gao, SanDisk country manager for Hong Kong and Philippines. “We have solutions for many popular devices, and continue to deliver mobile memory solutions that give consumers the freedom to never stop capturing, saving, or sharing—with the benefit of fast speeds to transfer it all quickly.”

200GB (!) microSD cards



SanDisk’s water-, temperature-, shock-, X-ray-, and magnet-proof memory card lineup now goes from 4GB to 200GB with the latest addition. The 200GB microSDXC UHS-I thumbnail can hold up to 20 hours of Full HD video and more than 30,000 16MP photos, all transferring at a maximum rate of 1,200 photos a minute. As long as your device is able to support a minimum 64GB memory card, it’ll be able to work with SanDisk’s 200GB microSD. Estimated to cost around PHP 17,000, the official price will be announced later this year.

iXpand Flash Drive


Apple products are the epitome of premium, but they’ve always lacked the flexible storage rival brands have (almost) always possessed. The iXpand Flash Drive seeks to remedy that Achilles heel by allowing Apple users to quickly transfer photos and videos between their device and computers. It’s available in 16GB (PHP 3,800), 32GB (PHP 5,550), 64GB (PHP 8,000), and 128GB (PHP 12,000) variants.

Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0


For Android OTG users, SanDisk is offering their new Dual USB Drive 3.0 with transfer speeds up to 130MB/s. Available storage options include 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB, priced at PHP 699, PHP 1,299, and PHP 2,299, respectively.

Dual Flash Drive with USB Type-C Connector

Dual Drive Type C


In preparation for devices that will arrive with the newest USB Type-C port (such as the new MacBook), SanDisk has outed the Dual Flash Drive with USB 3.0 on one end, and the namesake Type-C on the other. It’s available in a 32GB variant priced at PHP 4,199.
