Default Is the internal memory a microSD card?

Is the internal memory a microSD card that can be removed or is the memory soldered to the board? 4.0 & 5.0

From what Iv'e heard, there is 2gb of internal memory and 6gb of "internal SD".
As far as if that means you could take it out, maybe, but it would require voiding your warranty.

If the there is an internal card that can be removed, it might mean that you could upgrade it to 64 gigs internal, and then add 64 more gigs to the external slot.

Internal memory often is SD NAND, but often without housing, hardwired to the PCB. Usually it's not possible to swap that for a bigger one. No way of telling without cracking that thing open.

Let's try not to *crack* it!

I wonder if the firmware would recognize a new, internal memory chip, even if it was replaced/soldered in.
