I just got a new unlocked S21 5G.  When I was going to install my Google Fi sim card I pushed the pin into the hole next to the sim tray.  When the tray did not open, I pushed a little harder.  The tray still did not open.  I pulled the pin out and looked closer and realized that it was not the correct hole.  What is that hole for?  Hopefully I didn't break anything.

 

Thanks for any help!

That is a microphone. You may have damaged the microphone or just the grill protecting the microphone. The water resistance may also be compromised.

There are 2 microphones. Another is at the bottom of the phone.
