NEW YORK (CNNMoney) – It seems like a problem a lot of smartphone users have on a monthly basis.

Customers often have to delete apps and photos from their phones to free up storage space.

SanDisk recently unveiled the world’s most spacious storage card for smartphones.

The “SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-Icard, Premium Edition,” comes with 200 gigabytes of storage.

In other words, it is 72 GB more storage than the next-largest option on the market.

The company also says that the SD card comes with an app that will allow super-fast transfer rates, allowing customers to move 1,200 photos per minute from a phone to a computer.

However, it is extremely expensive.

SanDisk said it will go on sale in the spring and costs $400.

There’s another problem for smartphone users; many newer phones don’t come with expandable storage.

The Apple iPhone has never allowed customers to insert SD cards to grow its storage capacity, and Samsung just eliminated that option from its new Galaxy S6 smartphone.
