Code found in latest Android beta update shows support for Pixel eSIM transfers


According to Esper’s tweet Mishaal Rahman (via AndroidAuthority), the Android 13 QPR2 Beta update for compatible Pixel handsets includes information related to eSIM profile transfers. The eSIM, or embedded SIM, is typically a chip soldered onto the handset’s motherboard. It replaces the physical SIM card placed inside the SIM tray. Rahman is unsure if the ability to transfer eSIM profiles will be allowed on his Android models other than his Pixel.
