Since the launch of MTN's eSIM technology in Nigeria a few days ago and the revelation that the new technology is only compatible with a few smartphones for the meantime, several Nigerians have been eager to know if their mobile devices are among the few devices that are compatible with the new technology.
MTN's eSIM is an electronic subscriber identity module by MTN Nigeria in which rather than slotting your sim card into your phone, the technology is built right into your Phone and is activated upon request.
That is to say that the eSIM requires no physical card to function as it uses an inbuilt microchip in mobile devices such smartphones, pads, laptops and wearables.
To use the eSIM, it first has to be activated on your phone. The activation has to be done in an MTN store by a customer care agent.
However, it is important to note that not all mobile devices are equipped with the eSIM chip but once the device is certified compatible with the eSim, an account profile is created for the subscriber and the agent completes the integration process with the user.
At this point, I know you all are curious to know which mobile devices are compatible with the new tech, so let's delve straight in.
Below is a list of devices that currently supports the eSIM:
1.Google Pixel: Pixel 3, 3A, 3A XL, and 4
2.Samsung: Galaxy S20, Note 20, Z-Flip Foldable
3.Apple: iPhone XR, XS, XS Max, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max
4.Huawei P40 and P40 Pro
5.Nuu Mobile X5
6.HP Spectre Folio
7.iPad: Air (3rd Generation), Pro (3rd Gen), Mini (3rd Gen)
Is your current smartphone among the selected few?
