Nowadays, Android smartphones become very popular in every marketplace. Everybody knows about the performance of Android 10. So we don’t need to demonstrate it here. Without wasting time, let’s jump to the main topic. The latest topic is Android 11.
The matter of funny fact, Android smartphones can’t record video files that are larger than 4GB in size. Hopefully, that could possibly change in the following year in Android 11.
Though, it would be a welcome change is a huge understatement.
Android 11 capture video more than 4G in size
The limitation is getting more and more annoying as time goes by because immediately handsets capable of recording 4K videos at 30fps are basically everywhere.
That means big file sizes. 4K60 takes up even more space as always, and don’t be surprised if the first devices with 8K recording capabilities show up on the market in the very near future. We all are talking about Android 11.
Keep that in mind, the size per minute of video captured will only go up for android. Which means that you’ll fit less and less time into than 4GB files.
As it is right now, video recording won’t stop after the current file. That’s being created has reached 4GB.
The camera app will keep recording subsequent files on your smartphone. So if you keep going, even at 4K30, you may find that your Gallery has a bunch of different files stored for what you thought was one continuous recording. It is not ideal, for sure.
The 4GB limitation was introduced in 2014 when the mobile world was much different in terms of hardware capabilities, and while it may have made some sense then, it definitely is just a step back in user experience right now. Google seems to have realized this.
Android 11 is more reliable than Android 10. Thanks for being with us. Thanks for being patient.
