G7 Plus 4K video 10min/4GB limit

Trying to record longer 4K/30 video, but it always stops after about 10 mins/4GB. Thought it was a format problem, but the SD card is exFat formatted. This limit exists on many other android phones as well, but on some not. Is this CPU overheat prevention? If not, is there a workaround?

Are you sure it is exfat formatted and not FAT32?

Yes, formatted it in the phone and as it did not work as I expected checked the format with PC.

What about when you record to the internal phone memory does it do the same thing?

Re: G7 Plus 4K video 10min/4GB limit

I see other posts online about a 10 minute 4k limit - so let's try to determine if this is related to 4Gb or 10 minutes - can you record more then 4Gb in some other resolution? 


From what i read it may be a qualcomm immposed limit - Samsung users dealing with it too:

Samsung users talking about 4K/30 10min and 4K/60 5min limit - 4GB seems to be the limit in both cases, but I'll try it.

motolimit.jpg4GB seems to be the limit really - FHD/60fps video, length about half an hour

What is the file size in actual Bytes? That says 4.1gb, and so that would not be file system. My OnePlus limits me to 5 mins - and since i see Samsung does too, it does appear to could be a CPU limit.
