According to the company, the Super 5G SIM card can be used to store and backup videos, music, and big files especially while moving from one phone to another.

As of now, there is no official information on the price or the availability of the Super 5G SIM card. China Unicom is all set to launch 5G network commercially in China in October 2019, and the Super 5G SIM card is expected to go official by the end of 2019.

Might need a special device to use 5G Super SIM

Do note the fact that, unlike a normal SIM card the Super 5G SIM might only be compatible with select smartphones, and as the name suggests, the Super 5G SIM card will only be compatible with smartphones which can support 5G network.

If the Super 5G SIM concept gets a good reception in China, then we can also expect to see similar technology in India as well. Stay tuned to GizBot to learn more about 5G and Super 5G SIM card.
