A user on the Windows Phone Central forum tested SanDisk's new 128GB microSD card on a Nokia Lumia 1520 and has established that the Windows Phone 8 can support the extra capacity.

In February, SanDisk introduced its new 128GB microSDXC memory card, the world's largest-capacity microSD card. The memory card enables smartphones and tablets to store thousands of songs and photos and hours of video.

The WP Central forum user NoRomBasic tested the new 128GB card with a Nokia Lumia 1520 and found the card was fully compatible. 

"This means Windows Phone 8 supports cards up to 128GB capacity," GmaArena.com reported. "Even though the OS may know how to use such a big microSD card, some smartphone-specific requirements still may apply, so if you have another WP handset make sure you double check before you fork out the cash." 

NoRomBasic posted an image showing the Phone Storage option under the Settings tab to support his claim. With the microSD plugged in, it shows that 20.98GB is used and 98.10GB is free. 

"What I can tell you is that it benches about 20 percent faster than the SanDisk Ultra microSDXC 64GB (I have a couple of those as well and that was in my 1520 until the friendly UPS Guy delivered the 128GB card today)," NoRomBasic wrote. "I did record about 5 minutes of video last night and had no stuttering issues, as well as played back an episode of Firefly formatted in 720p low-compression WMV format. Card seems to work just fine."

"SanDisk's high-performance 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC memory card will reshape the way users interact with their devices," Stuart Robinson, San Disk's director of handset component technologies, strategy analytics, said in the company's statement in February. "Until now, consumers had to spread out their content between multiple products because the memory on those devices was not able to hold enough data in one place."
