LG U.K. says that the LG G3 will feature a 2TB microSD slot
According to specs taken directly off an LG U.K. website, the soon to be announced LG G3 is expected to feature a microSD slot with a capacity of 2 Terabytes. Each Terabyte is equivalent to 1024 Gigabytes, so you can see just how much additional storage the phone is supposed to be able of handling. Of course, since a 2TB card does not yet exist (and the microSD slot with the biggest capacity right now is 128 GB), there is the possibility that someone at LG made a blunder when transcribing the specs.

Speaking of specs, not everything else on the LG U.K. website matches what we already know. The LG G3 will feature a 5.5 inch screen with 1440 x 2560 resolution (QHD), with a quad-core 2.46GHz Snapdragon 801 under the hood. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 13MP and a 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed. But the LG U.K. version of the specs lists the device as having 2GB of RAM, when a secret event in South Korea last week, showed the LG G3 equipped with 3GB of RAM.

LG is expected to unveil its new flagship device on Tuesday, so we won't have too long to wait for LG to verify the capacity of the microSD slot on the phone. In addition, we will be able to clear up the question about how much RAM is on the handset.

Will the LG G3 be equipped with a 2TB microSD slot? Most likely not!

Thanks for the tip!

As long as any device supports the microSDXC standard, any capacity that falls under that category will be supported (even not yet released capacities).

Every single device that support SDXC (advertised as "up to 64GB/128GB") can support 2TB SDXC cards. Because that's the maximum of the SDXC standard.

Since this question is constantly being asked despite being answered, the SDXC standard allows a maximum of 2TB. Maybe even more (too lazy to look it up now) and the reason all phones so far state up to 128GB card storage is because that is what's available to the consumer... Well technically there is a higher capacity card out there it is also prohibitivley expensive.

I havent heard new phone supporting 2TB...as far as ive known..the highest storage a phone using now in memory card ia 128gb

currently the highest memory card capacity available is 128gb, but the device that support 64gb or 128gb is actually support up to 2TB memory card too, the problem is we dont have 2TB memory card available yet.
So actually this news is a gimmick.

Technically, any MicroSDXC standard slot should support up to 2TB, as per definition of SD association (any limitation to this should be on the system, not on the standards). But so far we have only up to 128GB cards available. Guess they went a little overboard hyping their phone and forgot what is currently offered by the market.

No 2TB microSD card, it's okay.

Let's connect 20TB Hard Drive with USB.

I remember seeing an article a few weeks back when the white version of the G3 was being leaked and next to it was a hand written spec sheet. It stated it was suppose to have a 2TB of storage. Whether internal or through micro SD, it didn't say.

I really want the g3. I was already a little disappointed by it having 801 but that's not a huge deal but if it only has 2gb of ram I'm out. I've been eagerly waiting months for this but not if it has those specs. I'm stoked on the 5.5 in compact design though and I love the metal look plastic or not. Anyways I hope there are more than just slight camera upgrades 1440 p screen and 801 soc

Each TB is equivalent to 1024 GB, not 1000.

37. hurrycanger (Posts: 1287; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)


In theory, yes.
In the real world, no. SD cards and HDDs are made with some other standard, in which 1 TB is equal 1000 GB.

You can check your hard drive or SD card via your PC or your phone. A 16gb card would show 14.91gb or something like that, not 16gb.

Pretty much and an easier way to calculate the actual storage you should have would be to multiply .07 to the rated capacity (1000(1TB) x 0.07 = 930GB). Essentially you lose 7% when converting conventional to binary.

This is called future proofing if it turns out to be true. 2TB SD CARD will be useful for storing 4K videos, songs and large apps etc............also more internal storage= buttery smooth experience with no hiccups

Nice marketing there LG, the current highest micro SD you can buy is 128GB. Any Android newer phone can support larger, but you may have to do some reformatting before it will work. If you really need that much storage a 4TB hard drive only cost around $150 right now.

15. wargreymon (Posts: 180; Member since: 05 Nov 2013)


SDHX standard supports up to 2TB, so yes, any phone with 64GB slot should support up to 2TB as long as there is no stupid software limit programmed.

I would be further excited if the LG G3's battery is also removable. Sony is releasing a MicroUSB thumb drive for android devices. This would eliminate the need for sd cards. However, having access to expandable memory is commendable regardless.

Better take a look on internal mem. Only 16GB. KitKat is not allowing to write (install apps) on ext sd card. So you will be stock on internal sd card. For video and pictures is fair enough because it is writing on ext sd card. Unless is not routed.

Wait, I thought it was going to have 3GB of RAM, like the previous leaks stated. I'm not trying to be repetitive, but 2GB of RAM seems a little low for a 1440p screen and LG's heavy UI. I was really hoping for 3GB of RAM, but I guess we'll see how it performs when it's released...

Theoretical support gets you so far, since we have just seen the dawn of 128GB cards, it will remain an advertising thing for a few yeara

The Secure Digital eXtended Capacity (SDXC) format, announced in January 2009 and defined in Version 3.01 of the SD specification, supports cards up to 2 TB (2048 GB), compared to a limit of 32 GB for SDHC cards in the SD 2.0 specification.

It's just a limit.

Thanks for the clarification of other Enthusiastic users at Phone Arena. It seems that this news is fundamentally flawed as it seems that all latest Micro SDXC version-supported devices supports this kind of capacity (2TB).

However, I cast some doubts on this Picture (Slide?). It has 2GB of RAM while earlier Rumors and South Korean secret release stated 3. Whatever it is I hope it's 3.
