These cards aren't just to use on your smartphone. Other devices such as action cameras, dash cameras and home security cameras also can use these cards to store photographic content, including videos. Consumers continue to favor using microSD cards over cloud based storage, and with the popularity of apps like Instagram and Snapchat, there is heavy demand for higher and higher capacity microSD cards.
Integral's 512GB card features a Video Speed Class 10 rating, allowing for transfer speeds up to 80MB per second. Expected to be available for purchase sometime next month, the card will come with a 5 year warranty.

Bring it on! SD cards support for the win! Just hope it's not absurdly expensive.

400GB UHS-1 card from Sandisk costs $250. This will likely cost 300 or above.

And yet 400GB microSD card isn't available on the market. And most smartphones only supports up to 256GB of expandable storage via microSD card. How can you use the 512GB microSD card if there's no smartphone to support it?

You're not paying attention. Most flagship phones from last year support up to 2tb sd but are advertised as 256gb. So yes same phones with support for 256gb currently support the available 400gb sd cards in market.

LOL! Where's the proof that all last years flagship phones support up to 2TB SD card? Where's your proof that all of last years flagship owners have got a 400GB microSD card. And manage to run the storage without any problems at all? All manufacturers display all system specifications. So if the manufacturer states that it supports up to 256GB microSD card. It only supports 256GB microSD cards. So why would you put your phone on risk of slowdown by installing a bigger than 256GB microSD card on a not recommended phones?

Thats not how SD card support works.....Just like on PC, intel says on their website they can support 128GB max on the x299 chipset. But in reality, they can support more than that as long as you find larger ram sticks. What manufacturers say they support is what has been tested, as there weren't larger SD cards to test, so they cant say for sure it will support it. But theoretically, all SD card phones released last year should support up to 2TB when they are released

This makes it much cheaper to add reasonable amounts of memory to the 2-in-1 laptops that are being sold with 128GB of onboard storage. The price will likely be much less than the alternative option of bigger storage from the manufacturer.

Impressive. I remember when Compact Flash was the king of memory cards. SD (and Micro SD) cards were super expensive for the same amount of storage (which was around 2-4 GB). Now I can easily lose half a terabyte of data without even trying.
