Huawei phones compatible with eSIM

Huawei is the first Chinese company to support eSIM technology, so it is not strange that most of its competitors launched high-end devices.

Currently, the Huawei devices that are eSIM compatible are:

  • Huawei P40
  • Huawei P40 Pro +
  • Huawei Mate 40 Pro

Anyways, the Huawei P40 Pro + is not compatible thanks to some limitations because of its ceramic phone case. Also, Huawei devices let you have only one eSIM at a time, even when the cellphone is a dual-SIM the second slot is disabled. This is one of the most known disadvantages of this brand: that you cannot use two physical SIM cards and the eSIM at the same time.

Let’s see a comparison between the three models:
