While most can get by with a single SIM handset, there’s something to be said about the flexibility that comes with a dual SIM device. A dual SIM setup lets you have two different phone numbers, while also letting you use one SIM for data and another for calls/texts. We’ve rounded up a list of the best dual SIM Android phones currently available on the market. Be warned that some networks and markets might only offer a single SIM version of the phone listed here, so you should ask your local service provider or retailer before splashing out cash.  We’ve tried to warn you of these below, but it’s always worth double-checking before you buy!

The best dual SIM Android phones:

Editor’s note: We will be updating this list as more dual SIM devices hit the market.


1. Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei P30 Pro dual SIM phone

The Huawei P30 Pro is one of the best phones around. Its great design, powerful specs, and leading-class camera give it plenty to love. The P30 Pro features four cameras on the back — a primary 40MP one with an f/1.6 aperture, an ultra-wide 20MP lens with an f/2.2 aperture, an 8MP 125mm telephoto lens, and a ToF camera.

The flagship is blazing fast, has great battery life, and is water and dust resistant thanks to its IP68 rating. The Huawei P30 Pro utilizes a hybrid SIM system, which means one of the slots can either hold a SIM card or a memory card. It uses Huawei’s proprietary nano memory technology, so don’t go buying a microSD card! And, it’s the last great Huawei device with Google Mobile Services, so it’ll do the job without worrying about availability of apps.


Huawei P30 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.47-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Kirin 980
  • RAM: 6/8GB
  • Storage: 128/256/512GB
  • Cameras: 40, 20, 8MP + ToF
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 4,200mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

2. OnePlus 8 Pro

OnePlus 8 Pro vs OnePlus 8

OnePlus’ latest flagship series consists of two phones: the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. Only the Pro model offers dual SIM right now. Oddly, OnePlus promised that the OnePlus 8 would get OTA support for dual sim capabilities, but that isn’t the case at the time of writing.

We can’t include the more basic 8 model, but the Pro is much stronger anyway: featuring a bigger display with a higher resolution, 120Hz refresh, an extra camera at the back, a larger battery, IP68 rating, and wireless charging. The 8 Pro also runs the Snapdragon 865 chipset, up to 12GB of RAM, and use an in-display fingerprint scanner. If you’re hunting for a great phone to handle two SIMs, plenty of power, and one of the most highly rated takes on Android won’t have to look far.

One more thing to know: OnePlus is announcing a OnePlus 8T to iterate on the OnePlus 8. But the company has said the 8 Pro won’t see a ‘T-Model- successor. That means you can buy with confidence even as the 8T emerges.


OnePlus 8 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.78-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 128/256GB
  • Cameras: 48, 8, 48, 5MP
  • Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery: 4,510mAh
  • Software: Android 10

3. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

Samsung’s Galaxy Note smartphones have always been among the most ultra-premium phones on the market, so it should come as no surprise that the latest Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is one of the best phones available full stop. Just note only the Ultra has dual SIM in a hybrid SIM, not the vanilla model.

If money is no object, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has it all. It sports a huge 6.9-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 12GB of RAM. The cameras on this model are also top of the line, with a triple camera setup led by a wide-angle 108MP sensor. The Ultra has the latest Snapdragon 865 Plus processors (or Exynos 990, but you should avoid this model if possible) and, of course, the ever-popular S-pen accessory. You also get all of the standard premium trappings like an IP68 rating and wireless charging.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Bigger, better, and pricier
Samsung's Galaxy Note line has always been for the power users, and this year's models are no different — especially the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. This new ultra-premium phone is Samsung's most refined device yet.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra specs:

  • Display: 6.9-inch, WQHD+
  • SoC: SD 865 Plus or Exynos 990
  • RAM: 12GB
  • Storage: 128/256/512GB
  • Cameras: 108, 12, and 12MP
  • Front camera: 10MP
  • Battery: 4,500mAh
  • Software: Android 10

4. Samsung Galaxy S20 series

Caution. The Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and super-premium S20 Ultra are dual-sim, but only in the global models. Samsung’s 2020 flagships are only single-SIM in the USA. But the line is a true powerhouse and too good to ignore, as long as you’re aware of that caveat.

All three Galaxy S20 models offer 120Hz AMOLED displays, Snapdragon 865 (or Exynos 990) processors, 12GB of RAM, and microSD card support. The premium S20 Ultra even offers 16GB of RAM, although that’s certainly an overkill for anything you’d want to do on a phone. They aren’t cheap, but any of the Samsung Galaxy S20 phones are a great choice. The only downside is global editions feature the slightly less powerful Exynos 990. Also, while you’re here, the S10 line of smartphones from Samsung were all dual-SIM in the same configuration: global unlocked devices only.

Samsung Galaxy S20 The latest and greatest from Samsung
The Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra are super-premium 5G smartphones from the South Korean company. No matter what you're looking for, the Galaxy S20 line likely has something to suit your needs.

  • Software: Android 10

5. LG V60 ThinQ

This is the best LG phone you can currently get, and yes, it can handle two SIMs at once. The LG V60 is a great all-rounder, with Snapdragon 865 chipset, IP68 rating and a MIL-STD 810G design for improved durability, headphone jack, big battery, and OLED screen with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Yes, the LG V60 ThinQ handles dual SIM, and still has a headphone jack.

It’s rare to find an LG phone that doesn’t do great audio output from speakers and 3.5mm port, and the quad DAC and stereo speakers are offered here again. The good news is as well that LG didn’t price this too highly so while it couldn’t be called a total steal, LG does have a winner, and takes the fight to Samsung and OnePlus strongly.


LG V60 ThinQ specs:

  • Display: 6.8-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Cameras: 64 and 13MP + 3D ToF

  • Software: Android 10

6. Oppo Find X2 Pro

The Oppo Find X2 Pro is a beast of a phone. It comes with a great design and packs plenty of 2020 flagship features, including a Snapdragon 865 processor, a QHD+ 120Hz OLED screen, 12GB of RAM, and a 4,260mAh battery with blazing-fast 65W charging. And, dual sim dual stand-by, even with 5G.

The Find X2 Pro’s camera credentials are impressive too, delivering a new 48MP camera that’s technically superior to other 48MP sensors, an ultra-wide 48MP camera, and a 13MP 5X zoom lens. Just don’t expect 8K video recording like with many other 2020 flagships.

This Snapdragon 865 phone is resistant to water and dust thanks to IP68 rating and can handle two SIM cards at once. It’s a big device, sporting a 6.7-inch display. It wasn’t officially released in the US, but you can get the international model on Amazon.

The Asus Zenfone 7 Pro is a flagship device that manages to cut the price without cutting corners, and can handle two SIM cards at once. The Zenfone 7 Pro carries on the successes of one of the best all-round camera phones in the Asus Zenfone 6, thanks to its unique camera mechanism, which flips the rear cameras around to point them towards the front. It’s now a 64MP IMX686 main shooter, with an ultra-wide lens as well and 3x telephoto to cap it off.

On the downside, shifting to 5G has made the Zenfone 7 Pro more expensive, but it is one of the best Snapdragon 865 Plus phones, along with its slightly cheaper Asus Zenfone 7 with its Snapdragon 865. We tend to favor the Pro for its slightly improved specs, including the 865 Plus chipset.

Aside from the flagship silicon, you get 90Hz OLED screens, triple cameras, 5G, and 5,000mAh batteries, making it a comprehensive device if you need a dual SIM phone.


Asus Zenfone 7 specs:

  • Display: 6.67-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 6/8GB
  • Storage: 128GB

A great pick here is the new Asus ROG Phone 3. Top-of-the-line specs like a Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, a 144Hz refresh rate screen, 512GB of storage, and up to 16GB of RAM, this phone has one of the largest batteries on the market at a whopping 6,000mAh, plus much better camera than previous ROG phones. It also offers 5G+4G or 4G dual-SIM / dual-standby support.

Like previous iterations, the ROG Phone 3 also has a variety of mobile gaming accessories, including an AeroActive 3 cooling fan, which is useful to keep your phone cool during long gaming sessions. It also adds a headphone jack, which is one of the few things missing on this device.

The ROG Phone 3 also offers air triggers that act as shoulder buttons, as well as a triple camera setup that’s a solid improvement over last year’s model. The biggest downside is that availability is limited in many parts of the world. Currently the phone can be purchased in select European countries and India, with a UK and US launch coming later in 2020.


ROG Phone 3 specs:

  • Display: 6.59-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865 Plus

9. Poco F2 Pro

The Poco F2 Pro.

The Poco F2 Pro is known as the Redmi K30 Pro in some markets. It’s a high-end phone, with dual SIM standby, and has the specs to match most phones in this list, but at lower cost. It drops wireless charging and IP rating to save on price, and it has a great package overall.

The battery is said to go from zero to 100 percent in 63 minutes.

This Snapdragon 865 phone sports a 6.67-inch Full HD+ display, up to 8GB of RAM, and a 4,700mAh battery with 30-watt charging. The company claims you can get the battery from zero to 100 percent in 63 minutes.

The F2 Pro also features a pop-up selfie camera, four rear cameras, and a headphone jack. All these things combined make it one of the best Snapdragon 865 phones you can get.

10. Sony Xperia 1 II

Sony’s latest flagship packs the Snapdragon 865 chipset under the hood along with 8GB of RAM. You’ll find three 12MP cameras at the back as well as a ToF sensor that should help with portrait mode images. The SIM tray accommodates a dual SIM offering hybrid, dual standby.

Like most other Xperia phones, the weirdly named 1 II has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It also comes with a 21:9 display that makes the phone quite lanky. You also get wireless charging, an IP68 rating, and even a headphone jack. All these things combined make it one of the best Snapdragon 865 phones you can get.

The Xperia 1 II is a great device overall, although it’s overpriced. Sony’s phone are often on sale, though, so you may get a better deal if you’re willing to wait a bit.


Sony Xperia 1 II specs:

  • Display: 6.5-inch, 4K
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 12, 12, 12MP + ToF
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

These are our picks for the best dual SIM options Android has to offer at the moment. We’ll add more as new dual SIM phones come to market.

We do get one frequently asked question it’s worth addressing here, too. Many people are looking for dual SIM phones, but some are looking in particular for Dual Active SIM phones, instead of Dual Standby. Dual Standby is much, much more common, and every phone listed here is that type.

The reason Dual Active SIM phones are almost completely extinct is that carriers support new options for phones to conduct multiple connections. The move has been made over to VoLTE by most carriers in most locations. That allows you to two calls at once over data, which essentially was a key reason for having older Dual Active options, where it was more necessary just to establish the connections.

Every device we’d commonly think of is Dual Standy, and perhaps only speciality devices will be Dual Active. The latter requires more hardware to allow for multiple connections, and is legacy, so it has been largely discontinued.
