“See you soon”! Have you ever seen a SIM card up to 128G?

As we all know, 5G mobile phones bring consumers a new application experience, and at the same time make mobile phone storage space stretched. Recently, China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom and other three operators have successively launched a new business super SIM card.

The SIM card (Subscriber Identity Module) is the user identification module in the mobile phone, which is similar to the ID card of the mobile phone, and has basic computing and certain storage functions. Super SIM cards combine traditional SIM cards and mass storage cards into one. At present, the maximum storage capacity of SIM cards on the market is 512KB, while the super SIM cards launched by the three major operators and Ziguang Guowei start at 32G, and currently can reach up to 128G, and have a built-in financial-grade encryption chip.

Dr. Su Linlin, senior business vice president of Unisplendour Guowei, said in an exclusive interview with a reporter from China Business News that the three major operators cooperated with Unisplendour Guowei at the headquarters level and selected different regions to start promoting the implementation of super SIM cards. China Unicom launched sales in Guangdong at the end of December 2019; China Mobile launched sales in Beijing Mobile in March this year, and China Telecom launched offline sales of super SIM cards in Sichuan Telecom in May. In addition, the super SIM card has been sold in more than ten provinces such as Hunan and Shanxi.

For users like Jinyi, enough storage space is essential for watching and storing high-definition videos and expanding the storage space of the phone.

“From the operator headquarters to the provincial companies, there is a common understanding that the super SIM card will bring some new attempts and experiences to consumers and operators.” Su Linlin told reporters.

Under the background of the country’s strong promotion of number portability and the wave of mobile phone replacement brought about by 5G, it is becoming more and more convenient for ordinary consumers to switch operators, and the switching costs are getting lower and lower. The three operators’ sense of urgency comes from the need for more effective means to retain customers.

Super SIM cards offer new possibilities. For telecom operators, if the storage space is large enough, it is equivalent to having a “private land” in the user’s mobile phone, on which they can build their own platform ecology. Su Linlin believes that this is expected to lay the foundation for the “rich media” that telecom operators have vigorously advocated before.

Each of China’s three major operators has hundreds of millions of users, but some of their service modules need to keep up with the development of the 5G era: traditional phone calls are basically voice, and text messages are basically simple text. There are more than one billion mobile phones in the country, and each mobile phone has a built-in SMS service. However, in the 4G era, some functions of SMS only become the verification channel for users, and the frequency of use is decreasing.

On April 8 this year, China Mobile, China Telecom, and China Unicom jointly released the “5G Message White Paper”, hoping to use a new service model in the 5G era to activate the SMS section that already exists in more than one billion mobile phones.

The rich media conceived by operators includes various forms such as text, voice, pictures, videos, and location information. This means that a large storage space is a must.

Another thing that has to be mentioned is the issue of information security. At present, mobile payment is becoming more and more popular, but it has little relationship with the operator. In the 5G era, if operators want to integrate financial payment services, the financial-grade encryption chip built into the super SIM card can play a greater role. In a sense, this is a bank card. If the operator can cooperate with the banking industry, they can try to integrate some mobile financial payment services through this card. Due to the physical financial-grade encryption chip, its security will also be improved. powerful.

Before the super SIM card, operators tried to use the eSIM card model as one of the starting points for business expansion. eSIM is an embedded SIM card, which directly embeds the SIM card into the device chip, without the need for a separate card slot. The three major operators have launched eSIM-related services and products. For example, in April 2018, China Unicom launched the eSIM Alliance, with partners including Huawei, Lenovo, Qualcomm, iFLYTEK and other important technology companies. Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhengzhou and six cities of the manufacturer implement this business. China Mobile and China Telecom have also launched similar services.

In actual operation, at present, the three major operators mainly use eSIM for “one card and two numbers” of mobile smart wearable devices, while a large number of consumers in China are using dual card dual standby service. For eSIM, its storage space is still very limited, and it is solidified on the device, and it is almost impossible to upgrade and replace it. Its essence is no different from a traditional SIM card. This means that operators can do limited things on eSIM. At present, the main use of eSIM in China is wearable smart devices.

“I asked the (operator’s) customer service, and their answer was that (using eSIM) needs to replace the mobile phone equipment.” Jin Yi told the First Financial Reporter that there are currently almost no mobile phones using eSIM in China, and Jinyi also uses dual-card business. The card is for the phone and one is for the network.

If you choose between an eSIM and a super SIM card, “I will definitely choose a super SIM card, and you can get a 64G (super SIM card) with a recharge of 200 yuan.” Jin Yi said, anyway, the annual call fee must exceed 200 yuan.

The operator’s current approach is to bet on both sides and promote both the super SIM card and the eSIM route at the same time, but the progress of the former may be faster.

The Super SIM has now reached an important node. In mid-May, Sichuan Telecom launched the sale of super SIM cards. So far, the three major operators of China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom have all stood behind the super SIM card. are you ready?
