Will the Google Pixel 2 XL use Google new eSim technology? Find out this and more in another great instalment of Mark talks tech #lol.

So I’m expecting delivery of my shiny new panda stylee Google Pixel 2 XL on the 15th of November having got 20% off my tariff using an NHS discount code. This leaves my contract at £54 per month with £9.99 deposit on the phone… and I get a free Google Home assistant too. Not a bad deal IMHO.

I read today that the Google Pixel 2 XL will come with an eSim and had an app on the Play Store allowing you to set this up (dual SIM anyone?) as used in the USA by users of Google’s Project FI.

So in anticipation of this i dropped into my carrier, EE’s Facebook page where I posed the question, “Will my Google Pixel 2 XL use the eSim?”.

Their response was a deflating no. “You’ll need a nano SIM to use in the Phone 🙂 – Graig”

Does anyone know if the eSim app will be usable in the UK and if so will you be able to register multiple SIMs per phone to create a dual (or triple etc) SIM device? Let me know in the comments.
