Android 13 could kill the SIM card – here’s how

While the eSIM has been a part of commercially available tech for six years now, adoption still isn’t exactly what you’d call universal.

The advantages of killing off the physical SIM card altogether and switching to eSIM – a secure element embedded in the device’s motherboard that can download carrier information – are obvious. You can ditch the SIM tray to make the device less porous, or free up space for a larger battery or other components. While nanoSIMs used nowadays are tiny, that space could still be used for something else. Every little helps.
