Samsung Begins Testing the Galaxy S9 and S9+ in China

11 December, 2017 Samsung

According to reports from multiple sources, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are being tested in China and Taiwan by the OEM. While that is pretty much expected at this stage, another fact that has been unveiled is that both the Galaxy S9 and the S9+ will have dual-SIM capacity, with one of the slots likely acting as a hybrid micro-SD card slot as well. The FCC and the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) websites has both the devices listed on them. The tests that are being conducted are meant for certification purposes, as you can probably guess.

Since the highlight of this revelation is the likelihood of Samsung launching dual-SIM variants in all regions this year, it should be noted that this news is particularly interesting because unlike the S8 and S8+, the S9 and S9+ could very well be rocking LTE support on both SIM slots. This feature is now possible to have on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip so that can be expected. However, let's hope that the Exynos variant which Samsung will launch to power the international version of the S9-series outside US and China will also have the same capability. If it doesn't, it would be a real surprise and disappointment.
