Traditional SIM (subscriber identity module) as we know it may be taking another level and going digital.
Mobile Telecommunication Network, MTN has launched an eSIM (embedded SIM). This type of SIM enables you use your smartphone without inserting a SIM card. The SIM is built into the phone, hence the name embedded. And not only smartphones but other devices as supported.

According to MTN, the eSIM is slated to run for one year and on a first come first serve basis for limited subscribers with compatible devices.
