      According to Gizmodo, its dual sim, but unfortunately, like iPhone 11s, 1 x physical sim and 1 x eSim!

      As confirmed over the caht with Samsung store rep, "Galaxy S20 range allows you to use two SIM cards in one phone - a physical SIM plus an eSIM. None of the models support dual physical SIMs".

      •  

        this is absolutely ridiculous to be paying 2k for a phone and single sim.

        E Sim and Physical sim is not DUAL SIM as you can only have one on at a time.

        • +1 vote

          E Sim and Physical sim is not DUAL SIM as you can only have one on at a time.

          Phones can have both the eSIM and physical SIM active at the same time if they're DSDS (dual SIM dual standby) phones. The dual-SIM Galaxy Fold and Pixel 4 can have both the nano SIM and eSIM active at the same time. Seeing that the Fold is DSDS, I'd be surprised if the S20 Ultra isn't.

          •  

            @eug: this is incorrect - you can have them both in but only 1 active at a time for calls.

            I had the pixel 4 and this is why i sold it.

            Had e-sim and physical sim inside - you can only have one active for calls at any one time. Perhaps data you can use both but definitely not for calls / texts.

            At least this was my experience and also confirmed by telstra

            •  

              @AussieMark:

              this is incorrect - you can have them both in but only 1 active at a time for calls.

              What exactly do you mean? Are you wanting to make 2 phone calls at the same time, one from each sim, like a conference call?

              • -1 vote

                @eug: no sorry for not being clear.

                I mean you cannot receive text messages from both sims at the same time.

                You have to allocate 1 to data and 1 for calls, couldn't have both active to receive calls or texts on both.

                Does that make sense?

                I checked with telstra and on my pixel 4 so am curious if you managed it as different providers have different e-sim settings and limitations.

                • +1 vote

                  @AussieMark: I can definitely do that on my Pixel 4. I have a Telstra eSIM and a Telstra nano SIM in it right now. I can send a text from one number to the other. I can call either number from another phone and the Pixel 4 will ring.

                  I was overseas last month and had a local prepaid nano SIM in it. I could receive calls and texts on both the local SIM and my Telstra eSIM without having to switch anything.

                •  

                  @AussieMark: That's puzzling - both my Poco F1 and my iPhone XS Max with dual sim (the latter being using one physical and one eSim) work fine and can both receive text messages/etc. You can even choose which sim to use when sending an sms.

                •  

                  @AussieMark: I could send texts and receive calls on both sims. Im not sure why you were unable to. But if im on a call with one sim and somebody tries calling other sim then it shows im busy and sends them to voicemail.

                  •  

                    @vcs641988: damn thats weird, were you with telstra or optus?

                    Maybe the telstra guys had no idea but I did install the e-sim and it made me pick which sim i wanted active so ill have to go back and check

        •  

          Mine is the same as jace88 and eug. You can receive and send text/call from either number at the same time. You can set which number is the default for data and calls as well.

          The only limitation is if it is Dual Sim Dual Standby (instead of Dual Sim Dual Active), when you are on a call with one SIM, then the other SIM can't receive call. But this is easily fixed by using call forwarding, and you will get a call waiting signal on the call that you are currently on.

          In my opinion, 1 eSIM and 1 physical is even better than Dual physical SIM as this free up the SD Card slot. So you can have two numbers active and still use the SD card.

          It has been confirmed on Optus and Telstra websites that all S20 5G variants will be Dual SIM (1 eSIM 1 Physical SIM) for the first time!

      •  

        Does this mean those sold by telcos on a plan will be dual sim as well (1 eSIM and 1 physical SIM)?

    •  

      For s9 and s10, it's possible to unlock dual sim, not sure if it will work for s20

      •  

        Can you please elaborate how? Could not find any info about unlocking single SIM phone to accept 2 SIMs…
        THANKS!

          I personally don't know how it works as I bought the service online. But if you look up in XDA forum, lots of people successfully unlocked it and bought a hybrid sim tray to make it work.https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-note-10/help/how-to-activate-dual-sim-sm-n970f-t4019503

      Single SIM and SD card slot only :(

    Dear Phones,

    Please stop getting more expensive. Look at your more useful cousin, the Laptop, which is getting faster, lighter, and (profanity) cheaper!

      People Justify spending $1500+ on a phone because it's one of the only electronic devices that's with you at all times basically, it's your camera, your (pocket) laptop, your wallet etc.

      Plenty of my mates don't even own a laptop, a decent phone does everything they need.

      Myself, I still own a laptop, albeit a 6 year old Ultrabook that I still haven't been able to justify upgrading for my use case…

    •  

      "More useful" is debatable and subjective.

      I would argue a phone is vastly more important to my daily life than a laptop/PC (personal use, not work use), and I'm a 'power user' with a high end PC.

      That said, most people don't replace their laptop every 1-3 years like a phone. Apples to oranges comparison, without even getting into comparing the most cutting edge flagship phone vs an average laptop - if you looked at the equivalent laptop from e.g. Apple you'd also balk at the pricing.

    So EPP has galaxy buds+ and edu store has wireless battery pack but same price ?

    Rebel EPP have the same prices, but all with a 0.20c increase, unless OP omitted the 20c for every price?

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but what do I need to get on here? I think my wife still has a student email address.

  •  

    Does the preorders through the EPP also give the galaxy buds+ with the wireless battery pack?
    Went through the checkout and the buds didnt pop up

    • +1 vote

      No. EPP pre-orders only get free wireless battery pack.

    • +1 vote

      EPP and Education Portal.

      Since they are giving 450$ discount for S20 Ultra (512GB) and 400$ discount for S20 Ultra (128GB) they are only giving the Wireless Charging battery pack and not the Galaxy Buds. Just checked.

  •  

    Will they have a S20e?

  •  

    IMO this is alot worse then previously as they do not include the galaxy buds 2.

    Still a great deal.

  •  

    so that $1599 with $400 off or is the 400 already in the price?

    Should also work with the $50 sign up bonus from the newsletter

      Nope.$50 bonus "Excludes Samsung Enhanced Partnership Portals, Samsung Government Store, Samsung Business Store and Samsung Education Store."

      Edit: according to T&C anyway. But seems like people are using it? Anyone with EPP access able to confirm?

    I don’t think I’ll live ever to see the day when iPhones get price slashed or bundled with free AirPods like this on launch day….

    Or just wait 3 months after release and save at least $500…

    • +4 votes

      2nd hand or possibly, maybe, grey import, otherwise, no chance.

      EDIT: actually, I take that back, no chance of even grey import being $500 cheaper in 3 months, no way will you get an S20 for $579 brand new ($529 if you include the newsletter discount people are using here).

      •  

        slight exaggeration from my part, sure, I am trying to say is that ALWAYS when they release a new phone, they go at max price, you wait a few months and starts to drop.
        Phone technology and advancements ahs plateaued over the last 3 years where the differences between phones are marginal.
        It's now a matter of "look at me, I have the latest" instead of having a phone that has an advantage over your last phone.
        I have the S8 and I do not find any need to upgrade as yet.
        Heck, the LG V20 i was using had more features than the S8.

          That depends on what you value in a phone. Compare the camera in the S10 to the camera in the S7 and you'll see a large difference. If you're not into taking photos then it won't matter to you, but don't forget that other people are different to you; they may place value in features you don't care about.

          The cameras in the S20 range take a good leap forward, 8K video recording means you can capture 33MP photos 24 times a second which would be great for casual action/sports, the 120Hz screen will be nice and smooth, and the 240Hz touch polling rate will make it responsive.

          They come with oodles of RAM along with, importantly, the ability to pin apps to memory so they never get closed, which means switching to frequently-used apps will be quicker.

          I have the S8 and I do not find any need to upgrade as yet.

          That's good for you, but once again, you have to keep in mind that there are other people in the world who are different to you. They may want longer battery life compared to your 3 year old phone, or a better camera with longer zoom, smarter HDR, better colors, and better dynamic range, a smoother, faster experience overall, or maybe they cracked their 2 year old phone and just want a new phone.

          Or maybe they're just into technology and like to follow the progress of technology as it happens, and $1.1k is easily affordable to them. None of the above has anything to do with "look at me, I have the latest". Just because you don't see the value in newer technology doesn't mean everybody who buys a new phone just wants to show off.

        Thanks, missed it.

        All are Enoxys. Bummer. This also affects camera quality too.

        •  

          Surely they would've fixed the camera quality in the exynos model by now to make on par with the Qualcomm Snapdragon in terms camera and image quality.

          Who knows a bit early to tell the differences between the two models.

          But yeah last years s10 exynos had terrible battery life and camera quality compared to the Snapdragon model.

          • +3 votes

            @MysticalWok: They cameras were on par about 3 months into the s10s lifetime. In some ways the Exynos actually stepped ahead.

            It's a mountain out of a mole hill issue IMO. But if people want to go through the importation process because they swear they can notice the difference that's up to them I guess…

              @brad1601: People spending $1k+ on a flagship phone don't want to spend that on an "inferior" product, or like being told their model is inferior. Actual usability / experience comes second.

    Given that EPP deals aren't marked as targeted is there some way for everyone to get access? I was looking at the Ultra 512gb and that's pretty significantly cheaper here than anywhere else.

    I'll prob get negged for trolling, but why does anyone need a $2000 phone?
    In the age when there's a ton of $500 devices that are pretty damn good, I can't imagine there's much real demand for these - other than kids earning minimum wage who just must have the shiniest shiny on the block to cover for their low self-esteem?
