Looks like we all have the answer now. Unfortunately, it's not from our beloved Telstra. https://www.optus.com.au/shop/support/answer/esim-for-iphone-what-you-need-to-know?requestType=Norma...
Any update on the release of esim, ask someone at store on Monday, he response was when it is released Telstra will be the first, I told him unfortunately your not and won’t be the first, Optus had released esim for iPhone XS months ago.
Apologises I do not have a confirmed update for you.

Currently, only Samsung allows for dual sim. Both being nano sims, and if you want to use the second sim as an additional storage, you can. However, the telcos don’t want other telcos attached to their own phone plans. So don’t sell them. I purchased my samsung note 9; direct from Samsung, after being an apple supporter since day one, and love that I can have my work and personal number in one phone,! The minute apple makes available a dual sim nano phone, I am keen to see how that turns out. And how he big players ie Telstra, Optus etc deal with it. Estimate is great for accessories but an actual nano sim should be used for dual sim phones.
Is there any word is Telstra supports eSIM for the iPhone XS.
Obviously it does with the Apple watch, through OneNumber" which i have in my Series 3, but the XS arrives tomorrow and I'll like to know more about the eSIM.
I was told (and experienced) that the Watch eSIM doesn't work Overseas. If this is true for the iPhone too it will be pretty problematic. Of course, better enabled with the SIM slot for a local country data SIM.
Or have I totally misunderstood the who eSIM thing...
My wife has an iPhone XR and has a Telstra work SIM card. She purchased the new Optus eSIM for her private calls and this works! So, you don’t have to have a phone with physical dual SIMs and you don’t have to wait for Telstra doing what Optus already does!
eSIMS are great, one can simply add them when traveling and switch between them.
