As more and more Android phones use eSIM, consumers will be able to change carriers, ostensibly making life simpler. Here is a list of all current US phones that support eSIM.
WHO MAKES ESIM? An eSIM is essentially a digital counterpart of the actual SIM card that we are all familiar to. Some phones really come with a virtual SIM slot that you can use to retrieve carrier information including your data plan, data allotments, and phone number.
Making the SIM digital aims to eliminate the need for the tiny plastic card that carriers must mail you and make switching phone providers easier.
PHONES FOR ANDROID THAT SUPPORT ESIM While some phones utilize this new standard, few OEMs are using the technology. However, there are a number of Android phones available that let you use an eSIM if you so choose. The following current Android phones can use an eSIM:

A phone must be designed to support an eSIM in order to utilize one. This implies that eSIM functionality may not always be included in a subsequent upgrade. Even while this is bad, there is a bright side.
Since almost all new Android phones these days have eSIM capabilities, it is quite possible that your future device will have the technology and allow you to use it with your carrier. Additionally, additional carriers are adding features, demonstrating the rapid adoption of the standard.
