Since manufacturers are shifting towards non-removable batteries and unibody cases in smartphones, more and more of them are removing microSD slots too, mainly because it is harder to have removable parts and waterproofing at the same time. Also, internal storage is always faster than removable storage and that influences performance as read and write speeds are higher.
On the other hand, memory cards have improved a lot over the past years in terms of speed and capacity. For that reason, Elephone has decided to add microSD support to their upcoming Elephone U and U Pro models. So among other buzzworthy specs of Elephone U and U Pro such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 CPU, 18:9 flexible AMOLED screen and 6GB/128GB memory combo, the company will add support for memory cards up to 1TB! This will make them “kings of the jungle” as there is no manufacturer endowing their microSD slot with 1TB TF.
What does 1TB mean? Just take a look at the latest flagships. The highest capacity of internal storage on a smartphone right now is 256GB. So, when talking about 1TB of storage it equals 4 devices with 256GB of storage! To conclude, both Elephone U and U Pro will absolutely satisfy your needs of storing tons of photos, videos and games as well as hundredd of apps and files.
