According to Esper, Google is allegedly developing an Android 13 feature device that could be a game changer for those who use two SIM cards on a single device. Furthermore, it may leave some extra space for smartphone manufacturers to use.
Google wants to assign two carrier profiles to a single eSIM and easily switch between networks using a feature known as Multiple Enabled Profiles, or MEP. According to reports, Google is basing the new feature on a patent filed in 2020. According to the patent, the existing SIM interface will be divided into two digital connections. Several reports in the past have indicated that Google is testing it on engineering Pixel hardware.
This could allow manufacturers to eliminate the SIM card slot entirely, freeing up space for additional hardware. We may see a resurgence of microSD cards or even larger batteries. Although the source believes that this feature will debut with the Android 13 operating system, it is not limited to Android; it can also be implemented on iOS and Windows devices.
