SIM technology is slowly having a new transformation in the world. From the regular SIM to the micro-SIM and nano-SIM, it’s time to evolve to the eSIM technology. The technology disposes the need for a physical SIM and is slowly being adopted by smartphone makers.

As far as the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 owners in the United States are concerned, the feature is now available.
Those who have been eagerly waiting for eSIM support on their expensive Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 foldable, it’s time to rejoice. Through a new software update, Samsung is introducing the support for eSIM in the country. The technology will work along with Dual SIM, and Dual Standby feature.
