New SIM cards from China Unicom have up to 128 GB of internal memory

The standard SIM cards currently in use have up to 256 KB of memory. A small amount of memory allows you to store a list of contacts and a number of SMS messages. This situation may change soon. Network sources reported that the state telecommunications operator China Unicom with the support of Ziguang Group has developed a completely new SIM card, which will go on sale this year.

We are talking about the device 5G Super SIM, which boasts a much more capacious drive. Reported options with 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB of internal memory. Moreover, in the near future, the company intends to organize the supply of SIM-cards with 512 GB and 1 TB of memory. According to the available information, the memory of the new SIM card can be used to store photos, videos and other data from the user's smartphone. To implement this feature, you will have to install a special application for data backup. It is also mentioned that the information in the SIM-card memory will be securely protected by enterprise-level encryption.

The new SIM card will not be supported by all smartphones. At this stage, only the devices offered by the service provider will be able to get support for 5G Super SIM, because additional software settings are required to use the card. At the moment, the operator has not announced the cost of new items and a list of compatible devices.

It is worth saying that this month the company China Unicom launched in test mode 5G-network in Shanghai. The commercial use of China Unicom's fifth-generation network, which will cover 40 Chinese cities, will begin in October 2019. Most likely, the sale of 5G Super SIM will begin at the end of the year.
