for the very same reason why the SIM is located there in the vast
majority (all?) of phones: to prevent hot swap and simplify its

If you were to connect the battery somehow (wires?) so that the SIM

It also means that the products can be cheaper since there is no need
for the extra sensor to detect the swap.
