Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 gets eSIM enabled with the latest software update


The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 unveiled earlier this month lets you have two different numbers – one through the regular SIM, and another through an eSIM. The eSIM functionality wasn’t available out of the box, but Samsung has now released a new software update to enable it.

This new firmware, sporting version number F916BXXU1BTIA and currently seeding in Europe, adds SIM card manager to the Settings menu that lets you use an eSIM on the Galaxy Z Fold2. It also updates the camera app.

The Galaxy Z Fold2 went on sale in major markets last week. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 865+ SoC, runs Android 10 with One UI 2.5 on top, and has 12GB RAM and up to 256GB storage onboard.

The Galaxy Z Fold2 comes with two screens – a 7.6″ 120Hz foldable AMOLED display and a 6.23″ secondary display on the outer cover.
