Librem 5 Phone - SD Speed

Will the Librem 5 phone support the SD speed: 104 MB/s (SDR104)? It looks like the imx8m chip can support it.

Up any news on this? What’s the sd speed?

Because the microSD card slot is using a USB 2.0 bus, it is limited to a max speed of 60 MB/s, but it is half duplex, so you are probably only going to get 30-40 MB/s speeds. That means that you are wasting your money if you buy anything faster than a 50 MB/s UHS-I card.
