Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ support 400 GB microSD cards

With 64GB of minimum internal storage on Samsung’s flagship smartphones, and even on some of the company’s budget phones, expandable storage is no longer as important as it used to be. Cloud services have also helped take some of the burden off physical storage, especially for those who have access to high-speed internet. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will also come in 128GB and 256GB models, but for consumers who will not have access to the higher storage variants, Samsung has given expandable storage support a boost on its newest flagships.

Galaxy S9 and S9+ support 400 GB microSD cards

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ support microSD cards of up to 400GB, instead of just 256GB as we’ve seen until now. 400GB microSD cards haven’t been on the market for long and are also quite costly at the moment, but with the increased video recording capabilities of smartphones (not to mention support for 960 fps slow-motion videos), some consumers will need all the storage they can get. With the S9 and S9+, Samsung is making sure its latest phones are ready for the future, and again, it will be a boon for consumers in countries where the Korean giant will only be offering the base model with 64GB of internal storage.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ were unveiled at the Mobile World Congress today with features such as a single/dual rear camera(s) with variable aperture and AR Emoji, AKG-tuned stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support, and up to 6GB of RAM (on the S9+). The Infinity displays have carried forward from the S8 and S8+, and the phones run Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0 out of the box. Features such as IP68 water resistance and iris and facial recognition are on-board as well; the new Intelligent Scan feature combines iris and facial recognition for faster unlocking of the device.

Actually S7 upwards do support up to 2Tb so the S9 would not be the 1st The only reason it says up to 200GB on S7 is Because at the time 200GB Was the biggest you could get at the time.

I’ve been using a 400gb micro SD on a Galaxy s7 edge for a few months now without any issue.
