eSIM is no longer the most modern solution. Qualcomm and Thales launch world’s first iSIM card

Qualcomm and Thales have unveiled the world’s first iSIM card. The partners announced the certification of the first such card for commercial deployment based on Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC.


We are very pleased to see that our investment in high reliability processor hardware security, in collaboration with Thales, has reached the level of security and functionality required by the GSMA for the UICC Remote Provisioning use case. We believe that the tamper-resistant element embedded in the host processor can effectively enable innovative use cases in many markets and product segments.


iSIM is a SIM card integrated directly into a single-chip system. In this case, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. According to Qualcomm itself, this solution allows you to save even more space inside the device, even in comparison with eSIM. According to Kaleido Intelligence analysts, by 2027 iSIM share will grow to 300 million units, due to which iSIM will account for 19% of all eSIM shipments.
Arm introduced the iSIM concept back in 2018. Then the company said that the transistors necessary for the implementation of the technology in the SoC will be located on an area of ​​\u200b\u200bonly 1 mm.2. Probably now this area is much smaller.
