What is Hybrid Sim Slot? A question asked by you for the last few days. Hybrid sim slots are becoming a trend these days. Recently, the Samsung Galaxy S7 also had this feature. Before we starting, give a look at the image shown below which shows the Samsung Galaxy S7 sim card slot. Or give a look at the featured image of this post. Is something looks different from the usual sim card slots? Yes, it is.
A Hybrid sim card slot in this device is a sim card slot where you could put two of your sim cards or a sim card+a micro SD card at the same time. Basically, they haven’t any additional function than usual smartphone slots. But, they make the slots simpler and productive. As you can see in the above-shown image, there is a micro SD card and a sim card at the same time on a single slot. If you wish, you could remove the micro SD card and insert the second sim card there. It is that much simple as sliding out the slot, inserting the sim or memory card and put it back on the place. No hassles, No difficulty, all can be done within seconds.
The old style of inserting sim and memory cards was very difficult. Removing the back cover each time was very irritating to do. That hard case always made problems to your hand and sometimes even broke the case locks. No more need to do those things. The Hybrid sim card slots are slowly becoming a trend and the companies accepting it as a good way to insert the sim and memory cards. Many companies are producing their devices with a non-removable battery. So, if the sim and memory also come outside of the device, there is no need to open the back cover. So, it is a bit easier to produce iPhone structured device with no removable parts.
Some of this kind of hybrid slots have some limitations like minimum SD card storage. Users need to insert the minimum amount of storage to the slot to read them. Another con is that it can only hold a single sim while having a memory card inserted. If you want two sim cards at the same time, there is no way to do so. But, these days, two sim cards is not a big matter, and the users could easily manage with a single sim card itself. Or the huge storage devices already coming with 128GB or 256GB internal storage itself. So, it is no more a problem.
