    you can't have 5G and dual SIM, this isn't possible in any phone yet I believe, you can only have one or the other

    Perhaps this is the technical difficulty holding up the release of 10.5.8 in NA.

    Not in NA.

    10.5.6 is still current. 10.5.7\8 is delayed for NA pending resolution of technical difficulties.

    If someone knows a 865 equipped phone with dual sim that is fully supported in USA let me know (not counting imports with missing bands).
    Trying to find some technical details on the topic and lack of dual sim in USA (atleast they could have offered dual sim in 4g mode until 5g mode exists)... All info I can find so far mostly leads to a pure mess. The mix of GSM and CDMA and now 5G clearly complicates things.
    So far it seems like 8 Pro may be the first one that supports it (or atleast I failed to find any other that advertise dual sim 5g for USA)

    Yes, OnePlus really "surprised" with OP 8 Series... no screen protector, no dual sim out of box for dual sim phone, and MSRP $999.99. I decided do not return because sold old OP6, bit will think twice before buying anything new from OP.

    Still no dual sim, 3 updates later. No screen protector installed, android auto doesn't work. This will likely be the last OnePlus phone I buy.

    The new Samsung's ?

    Seems like none with two physical SIMs though.
    eSIM + SIM on all I think.

    french oneplus 8pro, dual SIM with 4G is working great !
    the only drawback is that for Messages the phone doesn't save the sim u previously use and keeps using SIM 1 even if you sent your message to the contact with SIM 2 .....

    Ah. I still guess there are some limitations. Not sure if they offer dual 4G/5G or just "normal" dual sim features

    Wow, rough end of the deal.

    I ordered my OP8 from Amazon UK. It arrived on Sunday 7th June (3 days ago).

    It can with a screen protector pre installed and it is dual SIM however only one of the Sims can be 5G at any one time, which I'm totally fine with.

    To confirm, I'm running 10.5.6.

    Thanks.

    The specsheet provided on the Samsung website is useless for actual detailed specs.

    Check gsmarena for reference....you can filter + search for phones by the chipset , number of SIM's etc.
    Not sure how good it is at filtering for regional variants and different regional SKUs though.

    ok the OnePlus does offer dual SIM support but not for 5g, but let's be honest about this 5G isn't yet fully rolled out and is spotty and only found in cities at the moment so is it much of a hardship just to have one SIM active for 5G until they roll out the full service
