Integral's 512GB card features a Video Speed Class 10 rating, allowing for transfer speeds up to 80MB per second.

This card is not just meant for smartphones.

Additionally, whilst mobile devices lead the demand for increased storage, according to Integral, the expansion in new product categories including action-cams, drones, home security cameras and dash cams has triggered a surge in demand. It is also compatible with some mobile phones, so long as the device supports microSDXC. Expected to be available for purchase sometime next month, the card will come with a 5 year warranty.

Why the Need for 512GB?

In a press release, the Marketing Manager of Integral Memory, James Danton explained that there is the need to extend the storage capacity in order to provide the greater experience to the users.

However, it's worth noting that Integral's 512GB microSD card isn't quite as fast as SanDisk's 400GB card. Revealed back in 2017, the 400GB microSD card could hold up to 40 hours of full HD video and succeeded SanDisk's 200GB microSD card.

At the time of writing, Integral's 512GB microSD card has no retail price yet, but it's safe to assume it will cost a pretty penny. The 512GB card peaks at 80MB/s, while the 400GB SanDisk microSD card is slightly faster at 100MB/s.

United Kingdom company Integral Memory today announced a 512GB microSD card, which is officially the largest microSD card that's been introduced to date.
