Android 11 May Remove 4GB Video Size Limit: Reports


We have seen plenty of high-end Android devices with 4K video recording and other advanced features. However, Android users are restricted with the video recording of 4GB. They are not allowed to record a video more than 4GB of size with one go. But things are changing in the near future as Android 11 is all set to remove 4GB Video Size Limit.

The next major Android update i.e. Android 11 is set to release next year. We understand the basic need of file size when we record a video with high-end smartphone. A normal image occupies around 10 MB of size. It is hard to record a long 4K video on Android device with 4GB of limit.

According to a recent commit found by trusted sources, Google will update Android’s media classes to exclude the 32-bit file size limitation. Furthermore, reports have also confirmed that in their testing phase, Google were able to record a video of 32GB of size with one go. A separate test was also conducted on a different Android device for the entire storage space and it was also done successfully.

If we recall this limitation, the 4GB limit of a Video on Android platform was introduced in the year 2014. This was the beginning of Android’s era and due to less compatibility of the hardware, they had set up the limit for the video recording to 4GB.

However, with innovations in the technology world, we have the most advanced smartphones with new generation cameras and capability to record full 4K videos and even Slo-mo video. New premium end smartphones are now offering ultra slo-mo videos that occupies even more space on a smartphone. This is was making the premium-end Android users annoyed as they were not able to record a long 4K video even if they are using the premium-end Android device.

Google seems to have realized this issue and now coming up with the new functionality that will remove the 4GB Video Recording limitations in the next major Android update i.e. Android 11. We will get more information about this update in the coming days.
