Nowadays Xiaomi is reportedly offering multiple 5G smartphones in the market, including Redmi K30 5G and Mi Mix 3 5G. Being 4th most valuable company Xiaomi is always in good books. Xiaomi is one of the greatest tech giants following the trend of 5G technology that gives technology a new face.
The manufacturers are fearing that this transition will pose new sets of challenges. One of the crucial challenges is posed on the smartphone’s storage capacity. It is basically assumed that with better Internet speeds, high-resolution content consumption and downloads, including 4K videos will increase but they are not very sure about this. Now Xiaomi seems to be attempting to find a solution to this without sacrificing extra internal real estate in smartphones. The company is reportedly developing a two-in-one SIM and memory card solution that would allow users to add extra storage to their smartphones.
At the start, we have to say that it would appear that the increased speed and capacity of 5G networks would lead us to think that maybe it lowers the need for the storage but actually it is not so. The need for technology is increasing day by day with its advancement in the 5G network as it encourages the IoT (Internet of Things). But the 5G network will also lead to different challenges that made it consume more memory than any other.
It is very important for us to recognize a very astonishing future beyond the 5G network. In order to connect to 5G networks that are nothing going to be without computing and storage requirements of their own. Moreover, the Final product of developing machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), These devices are also going to be expected to have more latest capabilities than what we have now in today’s devices. In addition to that in the future many devices will start to carry more sensors and that results in consuming more storage than others. 5G enhancement enforces a new era of technology development such as smart houses and institutes etc.
Ultra-high-speed is undoubtedly one of the key features of 5G, which is enabled by eMBB. While a high-definition film takes minutes of time to download on 4G, it requires just eye blinking moments to complete with a 5G connection. With eMBB support, 5G transmits data 20 times quicker than 4G. In addition to that seamless HD streaming, the technology will also try to enhance the possibilities of augmented reality and virtual reality.
The exponential rise in network speed is accompanied by a significant reduction in latency causing enhanced network stability. With URLLC, 5G networks will be ten times more responsive than 4G, opening up new nearby reality experiences that require quick responses, such as self-driving cars and drones.
The arrival of 5G will initiate a new connectivity paradigm in which a large number of devices connect to the internet. Instead of relying on people to manage communications between devices, mMTC will allow IoTs to interact with one another autonomously.
According to a report, the Chinese tech giant is developing a 5G SIM card that is capable of both networking and serving storage functions. For this to work, the company is looking at the option of adding SIM components on one side of the chip and memory card functionality on the other. The technology is, however, not new to the industry, as Ziguang, a Chinese electronics company in 2019 released similar Super SIMs. But for Xiaomi, the company has now patented this feat. It is unclear when will see the two-in-one SIM and memory cards in the market.
Currently, Xiaomi offers multiple 5G phones, including Redmi K30 5G and Mi Mix 3 5G.
