Samsung eSim Support in India – Everything you should Know
Samsung eSim in S20 Series
eSim is becoming necessity for everyone, as most of the smartphone allows one single sim and a memory card slot, or sometimes a hybrid sim tray. looking at the Samsung Galaxy S Series and Note Series, they just provide single sim slot and one hybrid slot which can be used for sim or a Micro-SD card.
Every day, we collect so much data on our phones, like we download Apps, Games and other utilities. These take so much space in our smartphones. Even sometimes we make documents, or download documents in our phone from external sources like WhatsApp or any other. This too take some memory in our phones.
Now, problem arises when we have to use two sim card at same time along with a memory card, as our phone’s internal storage is running out. Samsung so provide 2 dedicated sim slots + MicroSD slot in its other series rather than Galaxy S or Galaxy Note. But for this solution Samsung has embedded a new solution to the phones, which is off course eSim, but Samsung do provide the eSim in its Snapdragon Variant of the Latest Series S20, S20+, and the S20 Ultra. They all have the eSim support but not in the Indian variant. As the Indian variant is powered by Exynos (Samsung Chipset), and have a hybrid sim slot facility.
Samsung may announce this feature in the upcoming devices where it may allow the use of One physical sim, one eSim and a dedicated MicroSD slot. In that you will be able to enjoy the power of both Sim at one time + extra storage as you need.
According to a forum in Samsung Community an Expert Answered about the eSim facility in India.
“Carriers in India only can provide eSim service to these handsets:
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung Galaxy Fold, Motorola Razr, Apple iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone SE, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max & iPhone Xr, Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3A & Pixel 3A XL
Indian eSim availability is to these devices only by carriers
Samsung models starting from S20 all capable of eSim facility but availability for user is depend upon the country and your carrier support at their end. So for India in Samsung only Z Flip and Fold users can avail eSim services”
