Aimed at the current generation of smartphones which boast multiple cameras and high-resolution video capturing, but lack sufficient in-built storage options, the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-1 microSDXC card is claimed to feature higher speed and capacity for capturing and moving massive amounts of high-quality photos and videos on smartphones, drones and action cameras.

The 1TB microSD card reaches speeds of up to 160 MB/s. You can now transfer files in nearly half the time over standard UHS-I microSD cards available in the market.

The 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-1 microSDXC card is up for pre-order on the SanDisk website and will be available at select retailers in April 2019. It will cost $499.99. There's also a 512GB capacity available for the SanDisk Extreme card, priced at $199.99.
