Although no many people find expandable storage of any use, a lot of people prefer to have a MicroSD card slot on a phone. Unfortunately, a lot of phones nowadays don't use this extra storage space. These manufacturers choose not to include the MicroSD card slot merely because it takes up precious space that could be filled by more important components.
Xiaomi though might have a different approach for this. Every smartphone uses a SIM card slot for the SIM, so why not have a SIM card that is also a microSD card. This will save the extra spaced needed for a microSD card slot taking up on your phone.
A patent found by IT Home shows how Xiaomi is working on the revolutionary storage technology that may end up the need for separate slots altogether. The card would have the usual SIM technology on one side and then storage technology on the other side. This would, of course, require a specialized SIM tray that can read both ends. The only drawback here is that only Xiamoi phones could use this kind of technology. As this technology is patent by the company.
It may seem like a brilliant idea but it might be too late. Since eSIM technology is going to be a more popular form of technology in smartphones, and there might not be even a space for a physical SIM tray the card in the upcoming few years. However, between now and then Xiamoi could entice people looking for expandable storage to buy its products.
According to Korea JoongAng Daily, over a million units of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 are still being used around the world and these customers are unwilling to part with their stylus touting Samsung phone. According to the report, many customers do not agree that there is anything available in the market right now, which can replace the Note 7 and thus they are sticking with it. While this love and loyalty must be flattering for Samsung in many ways, it is extremely unwise and meaningless at the same time.
What the customers are failing to understand is that the Galaxy Note 7 does indeed pose a safety threat that was great enough for the manufacturer to not only recall each and every one of them back, but also to discontinue the product altogether. While this has already and will continue to cost Samsung plenty of money (read billions!), it hopes to minimize the damage that the blunder will leave on their reputation. Even if you are a Samsung loyalist, kindly note that if your Note 7 does indeed catch fire, it will only further tarnish the company's reputation and they will have an even harder time leaving it all behind. Besides, we are pretty sure that the Note 7 will not be receiving any further updates or support in the near future as the product is already discontinued officially. We suggest opting for the S7 Edge and the additional $100 bill credit (in the US) that Samsung is offering now for staying with them during this crisis.

Qantas Airways wants to use a Virtual Reality headset, Samsung Gear VR, to take you anywhere you want while in a first class cabin of selected Airbus A380 flights. Select first class lounges (in Sydney and Melbourne) will also get the Gear VR so you can preview your destination.
Another use is to view movies on a large virtual screen, instead of the small display you normally get. And if you find yourself missing the feeling of flight those games give you, you can get a real-life view of the landing through the plane's external cameras.
The Samsung Gear VR is a headset that combines with a Galaxy Note 4 to provide an experience similar to the Oculus Rift. Jaunt and Tourism NT will provide live-action footage of various destination.
The Gear VR headsets will be offered to first class flyers in Sydney and Melbourne's lounges and in the first class cabin of A380 flights between Australia and Los Angeles. The trial will start in mid-March and run for three months.
