VinaPhone, a member of VNPT is working with partners to select technical options to use eSIM for VinaPhone subscribers.
eSIM, the nascent technology which is expected to change the world in the near future, for the first time was used in Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch marketed in 2016. eSIM is used in Apple’s latest two flagships – iPhone XS and XS Max.
At present, only 10 countries offer eSIM support, including the US, UK, Austria, Canada, Croatia, Czech, Germany, Hungary, India and Spain. There is no mobile network operator offering eSIM support in Vietnam.
The first eSIM supporter will attract all iPhone users in Vietnam. Other big manufacturers, including Samsung, Oppo and Huawei, are planning to integrate the technology into their upcoming smartphone models.
