Apple launched eSIM-only iPhone 14 devices in the United States on September 2022, setting the precedent for other smartphone manufacturers. We can undoubtedly assume that eSIM will be the next big thing in cellular connectivity for both iPhone and Android users in the future!

Last week our new Android App was released! It has become even easier to travel without being burned by data roaming charges. In a few minutes you can buy the Nomad data plan you want.

In this blog, we’ll highlight the main features of the Nomad Android app so that you can easily find out all its advantages. We hope that our Android users will enjoy their next trip with Nomad! We’ll talk about:

  • Android & eSIM
  • Nomad App’s Features
  • Nomad Loyalty Points
  • Special Offers
  • Final Thoughts

Android & eSIM

eSIMs are a real game-changer for connection all around the world. Since 2017 and Google Pixel 2 the first smartphone with built-in eSIM, Android has entered the eSIM world. Since then, more and more mobile phone manufacturers are producing eSIM-friendly devices.

Before installing (or even buying), just make sure your phone is compatible with eSIM. There are over 60 eSIM-friendly Android devices on the market, and you may be even surprised that your phone has an eSIM!

The most recent and up-to-date list of eSIM-compatible smartphones can be found here. New eSIM-compatible models are released every quarter so check back often!

And what about the future of Android and eSIM? Well, Google has been working on a framework that supports multiple SIM profiles on a single eSIM (MEP eSIM) for several months. This is big - that means that with just 1 eSIM, you can actually have multiple data plans from multiple carriers.

The latest news regarding this is that Google added this feature in AOSP Android 13, and it's now up to device manufacturers to offer it on their own products. It seems that the newly released Pixel 7 does support this feature.

In the mean time, however, Nomad has got your back with something just as good. Most eSIM-compatible phones today support multiple eSIMs anyway. And with Nomad, purchasing multiple data plans for different countries is a breeze.
