With the continuous growth of high quality video recordings and images these days, the need for a 1TB SD card is greater than ever. So this is the right moment to announce the new SD card with more storage capacity.
SanDisk, a Western Digital Brand, has launched its 512GB Extreme Pro SD card in 2014. That means it has doubled its capacity in only two years. It is important to mention here that the storage giant released its first ever 64MB SD card 16 years ago.
Although the company has launched then new SD card, the price for the 1TB card is still unclear. The 512GB is currently sold at Rs 23, 115. Therefore, the price of 1TB card would not be less than this. (Also read: 10 High-End Wireless Headphones For Your IPhone 7)

He further said, “Sixteen years ago we introduced the first SanDisk 64MB SD™ card and today we are enabling capacities of 1TB. Over the years our goal has remained the same; continue to innovate and set the pace for the imaging industry.”
“The SanDisk 1TB SD card prototype represents another significant achievement as growth of high-resolution content and capacity-intensive applications such as virtual reality, video surveillance and 360 video, are progressing at astounding rates,” he added.
While Apple is doing away with SD cards, they are still important for professional photographers and videographers, giving them even more ability to create more of the highest quality content, without the interruption of changing cards.
