SanDisk launches five new storage devices locally, including a USB Type-C flashdrive


SanDisk‘s back with some brand new storage offerings, updating some of their popular devices with higher capacities and introducing a new USB Type C flashdrive for the mobile devices that will be sporting said port.

This time around, we have a refreshed iXpand Flash drive, alongside a larger capacity SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick, beefier SanDisk Extreme Pro microSDXC card as well as a much bigger SanDisk Ultra Dual USB drive.

To start off, the new SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive boasts a new formfactor that should make it fit better on most smartphones as well as a flexible Lightning Connector and USB 3.0 so you can quickly save files from your mobile device. The new iXpand drive features storage sizes of up to 128GB and the accompanying app now allows you to immediately save images you’ve shot with the phone’s camera as well as iTunes music playback. The SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive retails for RM 179, RM 239, RM 339 and RM 529 for 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities respectively.


Next is the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick, which allows you to transfer content between devices via Wi-Fi as well as casting content to displays ala Chromecast. At the moment, the stick is available in 200GB capacity.


The SanDisk Extreme Pro microSDXC UHS-11 card has also been given a storage boost, now available in 64GB and 128GB formats and with up to 275MB/s transfer rate, is great for those 4K and FullHD videos you’re shooting.
