I'm considering getting an Xperia T but want to check whether it will recognise a 64gb microSD card? I know the official line is only 32gb cards work, but that isn't enough memory for me, so before I go and get the iPhone 5 64gb I'd like to check if any owners of the Xperia T have managed to get the larger memory card to work.
Samsung announced what it claims is the industry's first production of & 20 nm-class& NAND flash chips for use in SD cards and other storage devices. The 32 gigabit MLC (multi-level cell) chips will form the basis of SD cards to be offered in sizes ranging from 4GB to 64GB later this year, the company says....
Toshiba has announced NAND flash memory devices said to offer the highest densities ever. The new 128GB and 64GB devices use chips built on 32 nanometer process technology, integrate controllers for standard interfaces, and target smartphones, tablet PCs, and digital video cameras, the company says....
Why oh why is samsung creating lots of different models of the S4 - active, camera etc without trying to get the 32gb and 64gb versions out. I dont see the 16gb as being sufficient for most uses but rather than get the 32gb and 64gb models developed, they insist on releasing all of the different models first.
There has been some discussion on XDA about 64GB microSD cards on the Galaxy Tab 7.0+. The threads I've seen are older (April 2012) and state that the cards work. That's encouraging. The cards to which they refer are the Class 6 cards which were out early this year.
However, it's now September, and Class 10 cards are out, and they DO NOT work.
[The Register] asked SanDisk about this, and a spokesperson said:
SanDisk has been made aware of potential product issues involving a very small percentage of its 32GB and 64GB SanDisk Mobile Ultra microSD cards. Under certain circumstances the cards may lock up and the card becomes inaccessible.
Samsung has started mass producing 128GB flash memory chips that feature the highest density in the industry, and are made with a 10nm process. Such high-capacity flash memory chips already exist in the marketplace, and the South Korean company is looking to not only bring smaller flash memory chips to mobile devices, but also replace traditional hard drives.
