Future Galaxy smartphones will use iSIM in place of eSIM.
Just now are we starting to switch over to eSIMs from Nano SIM cards. Yet, it appears that eSIM is already prepared to be replaced by a more sophisticated technology that will reduce the size and offer better power efficiency of phones. Future Snapdragon-powered iSIM smartphones are coming, according to Qualcomm.
To demonstrate iSIM last year, the company displayed a Galaxy Z Flip 3 that had been specially customized. The business has incorporated iSIM into the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU this year. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s iSIM version has acquired GSMA certification and delivers the same level of security as eSIM, allaying any worries about security.
A Nano SIM is 100 times bigger than an iSIM, and it also uses a lot more power.
An iSIM is 100 times smaller than a Nano SIM card (which measures 12.3 x 8.8mm). It is found inside a CPU like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and has a surface area of less than 1 square millimeter. Its main advantage is that it does away with the requirement for a SIM card slot, freeing up room for other features like an improved speaker or an additional vibration motor. Also, it increases the phone’s resistance to water and dust.
