Re: Will the Samsung galaxy note 8 come with dual sim

The only downside to buying a dual sim direct from Samsung would be no EE Fw and hence the absence of Volte. ( based on the unlocked S8 having voWifi with EE out the box)

If  you can live with that then buy direct.

Hi, 

 

No not officially in the UK. 

 

Dual sim versions are mostly for the Asian and Middle East markets. You will likely be able to buy one online from foreign suppliers. 

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

But on the Samsung uk website, dual sim can be pre-order.

 

Thanks

@Northerner

 

Samsung has started doing dual SIM in Europe since the launch of the S8 (albeit they didn' straight away with the S8)

 

@Tamper

 

You will only get the dual SIM version if you buy through Samsung themselves.

 

You can even choose the network you want but this would be a new line rather than an upgrade.

Hi @Tamper

 

We currently do not have any plans to stock a dual SIM version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

 

You can see our current range and pre-order offers on our Samsung Galaxy Note 8 page.

 

Thanks

I don’t understand why as customers we don’t get the option for dual sim slots. As the single and dual are exactly the same price on the Samsung website.

There is not a big demand for the dual SIM so EE doesn't want to be left with excess stock.

Flashing EE firmware to dual sim Note 8 will bring all features up. Yes yes. Dual sim device can be flashed with single sim firmware and both sim slots will work fine.
