The IoT(Internet of Things) consumer market is increasingly adopting eSIMs in devices from computers to wearables watches to smart devices. However, not all devices have yet to adopt this technology. Rumors are said that Huawei, Samsung is likely the next to adopt the eSIM feature on their next generation of smart devices.
Here’s a list of devices that support eSIM:
In 2017, eSIM was first implemented on smartwatch devices such as:
Apple Watch series 3 & 4
Huawei Watch 2 Pro
Samsung Gear S2 & S3
iPhones With eSIM compatibility
(updated to ios.12.1 Beta 1)
Apple iPhone XR
Apple iPhone XS
Apple iPhone XS Max
Nuu mobile X5 (Android)
Google’s Project Fi is one such network that supports eSIM. Hence, now devices launched by Google are set to feature it.
Google Pixel 2XL
Google Pixel 2
Google Pixel 3
Samsung Galaxy Note 9
LG G7 ThinQ
LG v35 ThinQ
Microsoft Surface Tablet Pro
In addition, not all telcos have yet to adopt this new standard yet.
Only a select few countries support the new eSIM.
Here is the list of selected telcos that support eSIM:
- Australia -Telstra, Optus, T-Mobile

So far there is only a small fraction of support for eSIM, but a rise in eSIM devices could urge the mobile carriers to accelerate adoption. Since Apple has launched eSIM on their new smartphones, other notable brands may follow suit in the future such as Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, and others to adopt eSIM into their future advanced devices. The IoT consumer market is increasingly adopting eSIMs into many devices as it creates an even better user experience.
