Xiaomi Teased 2-In-1 SIM Card That Also Acts As A Memory Card

It's time to bid farewell to our physical SIM and microSD cards.

Over the years, an extra slot for the external microSD card has been considered a standard when people chose to opt for an Android phone. However, these spaces are no longer an irreplaceable requirement for our devices as a batch of smartphones are not really in need of expandable storage, especially flagship devices that instead come packed with ample onboard storage.

In order to address users’ worries, Xiaomi comes up with an idea of creating a 2-in-1 SIM card, which can also work as a memory card. Some news recently found out that the Chinese brand already filed a patent application in which they outlined a card with one side for the usual SIM technology but the other side carries out the storage function. Apparently, such type of SIM card will ask for a compatible SIM tray, not to mention the difference in microSD design that is a far cry from what most manufacturers currently use.

Despite the fact that Xiaomi is working on its own 2-in-1 SIM card, there’s no word on whether it will be rolled out anytime soon. Even if this really happens, such a card is likely to hit the Chinese market only. Finally, while we’re switching to the eSIM era, a physical SIM card or memory card will be something hard to see in the near future.
