In this guide, we will let you know whether the Pixel 7 and its Pro variant support dual eSIM or not. The smartphone industry is slowly but surely moving away from Physical SIM over to eSIM. Unlike the Apple ecosystem, we here at Android do have the option to have both an eSIM as well as a physical SIM. And there’s no denying the fact that the latter is here to stay for quite some time.
But at the same time, we also cannot neglect the fact the eSIM adoption rate is definitely on an upward trajectory. With that said, we all know that the latest iteration of Pixel supports a single physical SIM and also has embedded support for eSIM, so it does qualify as a dual SIM device. But the real question of interest is whether or not the Pixel 7/Pro supports dual eSIM as well. Let’s check it out.
Does Google Pixel 7/Pixel 7 Pro support Dual eSIM?
Yes, Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro does support dual eSIM. In fact, they will be the first Android phones to support this feature. This has been made possible due to the fact that both these devices come with ‘Multiple Enabled Profiles’ support. For the unaware, this feature allows the single eSIM element to connect to two different carriers at the same time.
It goes without saying that you could only have two active numbers at the same time. So if you are planning to use two eSIMs, then you will have to disable your physical SIM. While the official documentation still doesn’t list that Pixel 7/Pro supports Dual eSIM [it only states that these devices support a physical and an eSIM], but we have sufficient evidence to put an end to this doubt.
XDA Senior Member etherealremnant did manage to enable the dual eSIM feature on his Pixel 7 Pro device, so it seems the feature has already been enabled [as opposed to earlier speculation that it will be available in the next feature drop]. So Google has checkmark all the prerequisites from their end, it’s time for the carriers to pick up their pace as well. Because as per the current status, Visible, Total, Straight Talk, and TracPhone eSIMs are all giving out a tough time to Pixel 7/Pro users.
