Select Samsung phones are now compatible. An eSIM or embedded SIM works much like a normal SIM card. The only difference is that you don’t have to swap out the SIM if you change carriers. You can simply configure whichever carrier you want to use on the eSIM. Visible eSIM for Android support was announced back in April this year. Initially, only a handful of Google Pixel smartphones were supported. Starting this week, you can use the eSIM option on some of the best Samsung phones.
You may have heard of Visible if you live in the United States. It is an all-digital wireless provider owned by Verizon, the United States’ largest mobile network. On Verizon’s countrywide 4G network, Visible is an app-based phone service. Visible has long supported eSIM on iOS devices, but it was just recently added to the Android platform. The list of compatible smartphones has recently been enlarged to include various Samsung Galaxy models. Visible has said that one of its long-term goals is to become a completely eSIM carrier.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 as well as all of the models in the Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S22 series support eSIM on visible. If you own any of these phones, you can switch to Visible in as little as 15 minutes. If you’re interested, just check to see if your device is compatible through the carrier’s website. You can then follow the provided instructions to switch over to Visible should you so desire.
