Galaxy S9 Dual-SIM Owners Will Not Be Able to Upgrade Their Existing Storage – Here’s Why
Like every year, Samsung introduces the dual-SIM variant of its flagship family but the inception of the Galaxy S8 did not see this version, unfortunately; only with the Galaxy S8+. This year, things are going to be a little different because even though the Galaxy S9 is not going to be featuring some of the upgrades that the Galaxy S9+ is going to be touting, having two SIM card slots are always going to be a bonus.
Galaxy S9 Features a Hybrid SIM Card Tray Which Comes at a Cost – Using Two SIM Cards Will Not Allow You to Expand Your Storage Unfortunately
The product page of Samsung reveals the Galaxy S9 model number as SM-G960F/DS where ‘DS’ is being referred to as a dual-SIM variant. While you will be able to place two SIM cards, you will not able to expand your storage in this manner. This is what is known as a hybrid SIM card tray. You can either place a microSD card and a single SIM card combination or two SIM cards.
This is going to be seen as a bit of a compromise, and that might mean that users will have to pick up the higher memory model if they have an intention of using that much storage. Samsung’s latest Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have also been rumored to provide support for 4K video recording at 60 frames per second so if you enable this particular video recording setting, it is going to be eating a lot of that storage for breakfast.
There are obvious reasons to pick up the Galaxy S9+, which starts from the enlarged screen real estate, right down to the dual-camera. We also believe that Samsung will be providing the larger flagship in additional storage models, so future customers are compelled to make a purchase for the bigger variant in order to enjoy more exclusive hardware upgrades.
