Samsung prices the 500GB microSD card that makes Note 9 a terabyte phone

Samsung prices the 500GB microSD card that makes Note 9 a terabyte phone
Before Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 9, one of the leaked press shots teased it as "1TB-capable." Come unveiling time, it became clear that Samsung will soon issue a microSD card with the whopping 512GB capacity, and adding this to the top-end Note 9 model would make the one terabyte claim a reality.

Granted, Huawei's Mate RS was the first phone officially announced with a 512GB version, but it is a niche device, plus its microSD slot is listed supporting up to 256GB cards only, though theoretically, it should support any capacity thrown at it, too.

The Note 9 certainly can read Samsung's newly-coined 512GB microSD card, and the memory chip giant has now priced it at 290 EUR in Europe, which will probably translate into the same MSRP tag on this side of the pond, but in dollars.

Additionally, dealers should bring that price down further, as there is already a SanDisk-branded one for under $230, with suggested retail price of $299 over at Amazon. Granted, a 256-gigger from Samsung currently costs $78 there, but being at the forefront of technology has never come cheap. Any takers?

I'll grab one once I have an official price in the US.

As expected, 200GB and 256GB microSD also launched around that price in the past.

I already have been having a 1 TB phone for a week. This card comes as a gift to 512 GB Note 9 version in Russia. Separately it is priced $274 or €240 here and is available to buy for at least 10 days already.

It'd be great for extra storage on the Nintendo Switch, although the SD card costs almost as much as one
