Google Pixel 7 users seem to have started getting dual eSIM support with the Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2 update. Pixel smartphones have supported the use of a single eSIM as well as a physical SIM for some time. This new update is said to allow users to ditch their physical SIM card and activate two eSIM profiles at the same time. The Pixel 7 series is expected to receive stable dual eSIM support in a few months. So we can expect more beta users to receive this feature soon.
Esper Senior Technical Editor Mishaal Rahman (Twitter: @MishaalRahman) spot A beta tester got dual eSIM support on his Pixel 7. The device is said to be running Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2 build. Some other users also mentioned having dual eSIM support activated on their Pixel 7.
Rahman believe The Pixel 7 is already capable of supporting dual eSIM profiles. Google could have released a server-side update for the SIM manager app that comes with Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2. Previously, users were allowed to register multiple eSIM profiles. However, only one can be active at a time.
According to reports, Google Germany had previously mention It plans to bring dual eSIM support to the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro in March 2023. Rahman recently claimed that Google may be working on a new feature that would allow users to easily transfer an eSIM profile from an old Android phone to a new one.
The new system attribute could also allow users to convert the physical SIM card of an old phone to an eSIM in a new phone. Android does not currently include the ability to transfer eSIM profiles to new devices.
