Hello Mi Fans,
Today I'm here with another tech class thread for you. In the previous tech classthread by @teejay456, we learned a lot about Miracast in detail. As far as today's topic is concerned, we've been hearing quite a lot about eSIMs recently. And yes! In this thread, we will be taking a look at eSIM technology and it's details. So let's get started...
What is an eSIM ?
An eSIM is exactly what it sounds like, it is an electronic SIM that comes within the device embedded on-board. It’s a small chip that’s used to authenticate your identity with your carrier. Instead of a physical card, eSIM technology is built right into the device which will replace the physical, plastic SIM card that all current smartphones use, with a virtual embedded equivalent that cannot be removed. Ever since mobile phones became mainstream, users had to buy a physical SIM card from their preferred network operator to be able to use their services. The SIM card had a number attached to it and a security key that allowed the network to identify and authenticate subscribers for its services. It can also store contacts and text messages. An eSIM also has a similar usage and functions, along with some added benefits or pros, and at the same time, some cons that too comes along with it.
How eSIMs Work ?
Pros and Cons of eSIM
Future of eSIM
The eSIM is definitely something that seems to be widely adopted in the future, but it will not happen overnight. It may take a while before the full potential of the eSIM is realized. The device manufacturers, as well as the Network operators / carriers, have to support the technology. It is likely that eSIMs will also find a home in a new generation of LTE-connected computers and also on a lot of IoT devices, in the upcoming years. So we can expect that eSIM is going to be a commonly used technology in the future, and let's hope it will also bring changes in the form of thinner devices or devices with higher capacity batteries without increase in the size, IoT devices that are always connected to the network using their own built-in eSIMs and so on...
And that's all for this thread friends... Hope you liked reading this thread..!
