Here is every US phone that supports eSIM on Android

More and more Android phones are using eSIM, allowing users to switch to a theoretically simpler carrier experience. Here is a list of all current US phones with eSIM capabilities.

What is eSIM?

Unlike the physical SIM card we are all used to, an eSIM is more or less a digital version. In fact, some phones are manufactured with a virtual SIM slot that allows you to download carrier data into it, including your carrier plan, data limits, and phone number.

By making the SIM card digital, the aim is to create an easier way to switch carriers or make calls and do away with the little plastic card that must have been mailed to you from a carrier.

Can my phone get an eSIM while on the road?

In order for a phone to use an eSIM, it must be built to handle it. This means that eSIM capabilities may not necessarily be added in a future update. While this is unfortunate, there is a silver lining.
