Telus and its sub-brand Koodo now support eSIM, the company confirmed to MobileSyrup.
eSIM technology is the ability to download a virtual SIM card instead of using a physical one, which is especially useful in Canada considering most smartphones that launch here only features a single SIM slot. eSIMs allow users with devices that feature a single slot to use that physical slot for business or while travelling.
Both prepaid and postpaid customers will be able to purchase an eSIM for their devices, which cost $20 CAD.
For iOS users, you’ll only have the option to add an eSIM as a secondary line. However, Android users can add an eSIM as either a secondary or primary line (unless your device lacks a physical slot.)
The phones that support eSIM are as follows:
- Apple iPhone XR
- Apple iPhone XS Max & Apple iPhone XS
- Apple iPhone 11 Pro & Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max
- Apple iPhone 11
- Google Pixel 3a & 3a XL
- Google Pixel 4 & 4 XL
- Motorola Razr
- Galaxy Fold
