Are you tired of being tied down to a single carrier or having to constantly change SIM cards while traveling? Say hello to the future of wireless freedom with Google Fi and its eSIM technology. And what’s even better? This cutting-edge feature is now available on select Samsung phones. In this article, we’ll be showcasing a comprehensive list of all Samsung devices that support Google Fi eSIM, helping you stay connected with ease and convenience no matter where life takes you.
Some Samsung Galaxy mobile phones will now accept eSIM, according to a Google Fi announcement. Support for the Fi eSIM was originally made accessible when the Pixel 2 series was first released through Fi. Later, Google Fi support was added for the Pixel 3 and 3a phones. All Pixel 4 series devices also support Google Fi eSIM.
In actuality, this feature is so widely used that the Pixel Watch supports it. The Fi eSIM, meanwhile, was previously only compatible with Pixel-compatible smartphones. Some Samsung Galaxy smartphones will now accept eSIM, according to Google Fi, which has verified this in a new support page.
It should be pointed out that to activate the Fi eSIM, Samsung Galaxy phones must run Android 13. (One UI 5.0 or newer). The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is at the top of the list of smartphones that will enable this feature.
