Is there any update on Optus supporting android eSim device's? With the recent unpacking of Samsung's new Galaxy Watch, I'm sure there will be a few people out there hoping that this is something soon to be adopted by Optus.
I may have missed it, but have come up short in my Google hunting.

No AU Carrier has made an announcement on this yet, however, within time I would imagine they would support it, as Optus supports the eSim on the Apple Watch, so it makes sense that it could be adapted hopefully to work with samsungs e-sim. You may need to give it a few weeks and wait for an annoucement.

I have been waiting to update my Samsung Gear. It seems that their is a lot of apathy with the Australian telcos in supporting e-sims for some reason. Hopefully they will support the SM-R815 as the battery life in my watch is getting shorter and there is no hope in hell I would get an Apple toy watch. If they dont get their act together, I will just get the battery replaced by Samsung in the Gear I have

Their is zero chance of Optus connecting anything other than an apple watch. The parent company signed a corrupt monopoly agreement to only support Apple products. They then stopped support for Samsung watches already connected.
