According to Esper, Google is working on a feature in Android 13 that could be a game changer for people who use two SIM cards in one phone. And perhaps leave some additional wiggle room for smartphone makers.

Through a feature called Multiple Enabled Profiles (MEP), the search giant wants to assign two carrier profiles to a single eSIM and easily switch between networks. Google is said to be basing the new feature on a patent filed in 2020, which describes splitting the existing SIM interface into two digital connections. It has been reported in the past that Google is testing it on Pixel designed hardware.

In turn, this could allow manufacturers to ditch the SIM card slot entirely, leaving room for additional hardware. We could see the return of microSD cards or we could also see slightly larger batteries.

Although the source believes that the feature will debut with Android 13, it is not actually intrinsic to Android. It can be implemented on iOS and even on Windows.
