ESIM card that is Embedded-SIM, is an embedded SIM card. The concept of an eSIM card is to embed a traditional SIM card directly onto the device chip, rather than adding it as a separate removable part to the device without the user having to plug in a physical SIM card. Since it is no longer necessary to have a separate SIM card slot for the device, future eSIM-designed devices will have a lighter and thinner body and users can switch operators at any time for cost and operator benefits.
As early as the end of last year, China Unicom has officially opened the eSIM account opening service, users can go through the mobile phone business hall App or go to the business hall to handle it. After the account opening is successful, it can use LTE service on the equipment supporting eSIM. On February 14 this year, China Unicom has also received exclusive approval from eSIM One-Pilot Terminal Services and will launch this innovative service in six cities in Shanghai, Tianjin, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhengzhou and Changsha.
