The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, the latest foldable in the market, was recently launched on July 26 at the Unpacked event. Owning a foldable phone offers numerous great advantages, making it a desirable choice for many. However, before making a purchase, users will have various questions about the device. In this article, I will answer whether the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 supports Dual Sim or not.
We have already answered a couple of common questions related to the Galaxy Z Fold 5. Here are some answers you would like to read to know more about your device of interest.
Usually, big-screen phones, also known as tablets, are available in either WiFi-only versions or with both WiFi and LTE/5G capabilities. However, foldable devices come with only one option that includes both WiFi and LTE/5G network support. This is because foldables can be used as both a tablet and a smartphone. As a result, one common question that arises is how many SIM cards the Galaxy Z Fold 5 supports. I will try to provide all the necessary details.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 has Dual SIM Slot
The latest foldable, Galaxy Z Fold 5 comes with a Dual SIM Slot, just like its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 4. The new device support Nano SIM, which has been the standard for many years. This means you can insert two physical Nano SIM cards, making it a helpful and essential feature to have, especially since many users have two numbers.
Does Galaxy Z Fold 5 support eSIM
eSIM has become common these days. The Google Pixel 2 was the first phone to include eSIM, and with the iPhone also adopting eSIM a few years back, it has become a norm for higher-budget smartphones. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 does come with eSIM support, but only one eSIM can be used on the device.
So, if you prefer eSIM over a physical Nano-SIM, you don’t need to worry because you can use eSIM just like other smartphones. However, remember that you can only use one eSIM at a time.
How many SIMs can be used on Galaxy Z Fold 5 Together?
As you know, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 comes with slots for two Nano-SIMs and also supports one eSIM. You might be wondering how many SIMs the Galaxy Z Fold 5 can support simultaneously. In total, users can use two SIMs on the Galaxy Z Fold 5.
If you are using an eSIM, then you can only use one physical SIM, or you can use two physical SIMs without an eSIM. Users with two numbers will not have any problem. However, note that you won’t be able to use three SIMs on your Galaxy Z Fold 5 at the same time.
Galaxy Z Fold 5 eSIM Limitations
- On Galaxy Z Fold 5 users can easily add multiple eSIM profiles, but only one can be used at a time.
- eSIM has its own advantages and disadvantages
- eSIM support availability not only depends on the device but also on Region, Carrier, and Software version.
