    I see your point but having a dual Sim option means more manufacturing cost and inventory risk. I doubt they will have it as a selectable option.

    Hello Everyone,

    I might be a bad guy saying following words however it is kinda true:

    Dual Sim reminds everyone about chip and poor quality phones designed and made in china with price tag about $50.
    What Premium Class smartphone you know with Dual Sim???

    Flagships are always single sim...

    Taking into account the pool from this thread, they can make like 10% as Dual Sim with proper Price :) and to give that phone to people who cannot sleep without Dual Sim.

    What about FM radio support. That will be hugely beneficial as I don't have any data package.

    I assume S6 counts as a 'flagship'? http://www.samsung.com/hk_en/consumer/mobile/smartphones/smartphones/SM-G9200ZWUTGY

    Edit: I can also show how LG, HTC are giving dual sim variants of their flagships but I won't bother for someone who makes statement without a simple search

    I can see the advantages for some but for me it wouldn't serve a purpose.

    @Cat H there are so many reasons why other smartphone companies are offering dual sims feature to their flagship phones, especially for Hong Kong, China and India market. If your marketing team still cant grasp the reason behind it, then better fire them all and hire a new team. just saying.

    Yeah, there are variants, S6 Edge as Dous you won't found I guess...

    Basic version is Single Sim. Now I had a look at specs and it is same as basic version, few years ago, duos were not flagships.

    Well ok, if there are gonna be 2 versions I don't mind, However if it is a single version made as dual sim... it's something different and maybe my point was not that clear. Flagships basically are single sim.

    Dual sim is the lifeline in many situation. If it is a mobile phone, it has to be 4g dual sim.

    I feel both micro SD support up to 64 GB at least n dual sim should be available. At the same time, the slimness should also be adhered to.

    As most have said - work and personal sims would be great. Makes tuning out of work on weekends and days off much easier haha

    3 UK allow your phone to be used in many other countries at no extra cost, so dual SIM would be pretty pointless for me. We just login for work usage with the same device.

    Any device that support the SDXC standard (which all modern devices support) allow for microSD expandability up to 2TB. So any device that supports 64GB will support the highest capacity 128GB/200GB microSDs out right now. If you have a problem with a certain card, the issue is not the card but the format supported by the OS and kernel which varies from device to device. FAT32 is universally supported. NTFS and exFAT support varies.

    Tbh I wouldn't give a shit about thickness, as long as its not more than like 12mm if they put a bigger battery, and microsd and dual slim, but thats a little too much to ask! :)
