In the past several years we have seen several mobiles, notably high-end ones, which have attained the market with no microSD card slot. A good illustration of that is that the iPhone 11 and Google Pixel 4. What’s the cause of this? As producers say that slot occupies an important space that can be used to incorporate other components to your mobile. Also, microSD cards don’t operate like internal storage, in terms of speed.
Even so, the great majority of users consider that it is vital to be able to enlarge the inner storage on any device since now cellular phones can capture in 4K or perhaps download very heavy pictures in this resolution thanks to 5G. Faced with this issue, Xiaomi has invented a great solution that fulfills the wishes of consumers without failing the design of the producers. A SIM card that may work as a microSD. The Chinese brand has optimized this card.
When there is at least one slot that each and every smartphone has to need to be considered a”phone,” it is that of the SIM card. Therefore, in the event the telephones of the future won’t have microSD card slots, then it would be best to take advantage of the single slot to add storage. That’s precisely what Xiaomi has believed to make its SIM card which also works as a microSD.
Xiaomi SIM card with SD Card
According to the leaked picture, this excellent Xiaomi dual card is going to have the standard SIM technology on the one hand (which will be compatible with 5G) and, on the flip side, storage technology. On the other hand, the storage technology we see in this patent is not that of those microSD slots which all manufacturers use today. That usually means that possibly this double card may only be employed on Xiaomi along with the Redmi apparatus.
Though many had not seen anything like that which this Xiaomi patent suggests. Already in 2019, the Ziguang firm had introduced a card similar to this. Additionally, recently, the eSIM (incorporated SIM that doesn’t require a slot or card ) has been popularized in today’s smartphones. So it’s very likely that in the future cellular telephones don’t have any type of slot.
Let’s not be shocked if this patent stays as it is (a concept ) and we never find in the marketplace a Xiaomi SIM card which also works as a microSD. Everything will depend on the technological tendencies the most important producers follow in the coming years, so we will need to wait to find out what this patent ends.
Well if this concept comes true then ut can literally solve a good amount of problems. Storage has always been a problem for every range of smartphones either it is the budget segment, mid-rangers or the high-end devices. People would be able to easily upgrade their storage device and for this eSIM would be very beneficial. Let’s see what comes next.
