While 5G networks have eased the downloading of 4K videos and more, the required storage space often comes in the way. Although there is an option to expand the memory, a new patent from Xiaomi might be a game-changer. Reports have it that Xiaomi is developing a 5G SIM card that is capable of networking as well as a storage card.

The novel idea seems intriguing and can change the future of 5G and smartphones as well. However, another Chinese company Ziguang has come up with a similar idea. But now, Xiaomi has developed a design and has patented it. The company will further be developing it, reports note.

The patent reveals that the smartphone maker has detailed out the design where a memory card also serves as a SIM card. The idea is quite similar to the 'super' SIM card that was earlier introduced by Ziguang in 2019. The design notes that a memory card will be placed on one side and the components of the SIM card will be placed at the back.


While this is just a patent, the prototype could have good implications for the smartphone industry. While a few OEMs offer additional memory in their dual hybrid SIM card slots, the premium flagship smartphones generally provide larger internal storage.

The newly patented technology is the smarter way of providing a 5G network and additional storage. Further, it would also allow easier migration of data for a user when switching smartphones.
