So, for the sake of using the secondary SIM card, one had to take out the memory card and the use the slot for another network. For those of you who are unaware : the Samsung Galaxy S20 makes way with a Hybrid-SIM slot – which of course refers to the fact that users can use a nano-SIM + microSD card or two nano-SIMS at the very same time. In any case though, with the enablement of eSIM, users will now have the opportunity to use the device with two networks as well as an SD card – all in a simultaneous manner.

And of course this isn’t the only thing that the One UI 3.1 brings about. It also brings to the table improved performance, private share, GPS location data removal on images, more lock screen widgets, background video calling, zoom lock(in camera) and more.
