It always feels nice when you get more at the cost of one. Same joy applies to smartphones with dual SIM support. Once considered a no-no for premium devices, companies such as HTC and Samsung now offer it as a default feature in some of their top-end flagship smartphones. Dual SIM support, either through a hybrid system (where you can either expand storage or use the second SIM) or through a dedicated slot, is one of the features premium customers now demand, especially in the post-Reliance Jio era. If you are considering an upgrade to an expensive smartphone but don’t wish to continue using the soap kit-sized secondary phone, you can consider one of the following options which are both premium and offer dual SIM support.

Samsung’s latest premium smartphones – the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ – both support dual SIM through a hybrid slot. Because there is a hybrid system, you can either insert a second SIM or expand the storage. However, if you opt for the newer 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM Galaxy S8+ variant, priced at Rs 74,900, you will not only get a bigger display, but also more default storage along with a larger 3,500mAh battery.  ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy S8+ Review: It’s glorious, but with some caveats
