Xperia XZs Dual has a hybrid SIM tray

by XB on 27th March 2017

in Xperia X series


Sony Mobile started to use a hybrid SIM tray for its dual SIM Xperia models in its 2016 devices. This meant that if you wanted to install a microSD memory card in your phone, then you could only use one SIM card instead of two – or, if you need to use two SIM cards, then you cannot use a memory card.

This is unlike the dual sim Xperia models from before 2015, which allowed you to use two SIM cards, as well as a micro SD card. Well, if you were hoping that Sony might change this for its 2017 models, then the omens don’t look great. We can confirm that the Xperia XZs Dual will also use the hybrid SIM tray, as you can see from the pics below. There is still a chance we could see a proper dual SIM + memory card option in other Xperia models this year, but don’t get your hopes up.

    I don’t like the hybrid layout, you loose out doing everything. Have you noticed that AT&T shutdown their 2G network, and Dual SIMs don’t work in the U.S. anymore. What now, a few people talk about in forums, but I haven’t seen any articles written about it. What are the steps Sony is going to make to fix this issue, as Dual SIMs phone are useless in the American market now. Are they going to change (like a previous article Xperia Blog wrote about China having dual sim 4G & 4G)?

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Why SONY whyyy!!? This is a disturbing news I might reconsider buying XZ Premuim Dual because of this!!

  • Luis E Henriquez

    Sony Xperia X Performance and XZ support 4G/LTE on one sim and 3G on the other. Z5 does not.

  • lolop

    This doesn’t affect me at all but this is still very poor from Sony.

  • Moisés

    Exactly as I thought.. Like other X, single sim is 32gb and dual is 64gb.
    Except XA/XA Ultra , they are true dual.

    XZ Premium has only 64gb, so I believe it is true dual like Z5.

    I was thinking of buying XZs next year.
    Z3+ is staying around until 2018 at least.

    XZ is still more than US$ 1000, so I do not expect XZs to be less than 1150. I still have hope to see better price, XZ was cheaper than Z5.
    Also hope XZP does not come for 1450 like Z5P.

    Next time, I buy on ebay..

  • JC

    So cheap.

  • Moisés

    Just updated my z4 to Nougat a few minutes ago… Could have done before, just was afraid of major issues…
    It seems fine..
    Except the last A57 awake, now it sleeps.

  • El_Carnicero

    It’s a good thing I mounted my SIM chip onto the SD Card… Works perfectly in these dual-tray configurations. :)

  • El_Carnicero

    Learn a bit more before posting. :)

  • charles

    So bad Sony…

  • Arjun Arora

    It doesn’t work in the Xperia XZ. I tried both in the marshmallow & nougat firmwares.
    I just hope the XZ premium dual has a dedicated sd card slot.

  • El_Carnicero

    I’m running it on my XZ…

  • Arjun Arora

    I tried twice but failed.. Which firmware are you on??
    Can you please share some pictures.. Thanks..

  • El_Carnicero
  • WHATTHE

    This is not new, It started from the X series.
    That is the reason the dual SIM variant always had double the storage.
    The XZ is the same.

  • MG

    I have seen the XZ premium tray on the single SIM configuration and the SIM and SD cards are side by side (different slots) which gives high hopes that the dual SIM version will probably have dedicated SD slot.
    On the other hand. the single SIM version of ΧΖ/ΧΖs have both cards on the single tray similar to the dual sim version.

  • Mateus B. Cassiano

    Xperia XZs is essentially a regular Xperia XZ (which already had the hybrid slot bullshit) with the upgraded camera module from XZ Premium, what you were expecting? I even dare to say the same SIM tray from XZ will fit in XZs too…

  • Zayed Kotayba

    I’m talking about XZP not XZs and as a owner of Z5P Dual I expected something better from SONY to make me upgrade

  • Zayed Kotayba

    I hope that’s the case

  • alishayzadag

    I noticed that too.

  • Moisés

    Yes… Except XA. It has regular slot

  • Ryuzaki Raiga

    all those words are mouthfull

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Ok so expressing my own opinion is mouthful….
    And you didn’t come with a counter argument to back your claim…
    Mmmm that’s seem mouthful LoL

  • Makozak

    Can i understand why the hate around this hybrid concept ?

  • Mateus B. Cassiano

    Then why you’re complaining in a post referring exclusively to the Xperia XZs? Nobody knows yet if XZ Premium uses the hybrid slot bullshit or not…

  • Mateus B. Cassiano

    You buy a phone advertised as a dual SIM device with microSD slot and yet you can’t use two SIM cards AND a microSD card simultaneously, being limited to two SIM cards or a single SIM and a microSD card. That’s why it’s hated.

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Because Z5 has no hybrid SIM and Z5P has no hybrid SIM
    XZs has hybrid SIM then XZP 90% likely to have hybrid SIM as well

  • Makozak

    Oh, I thought you could insert the second SIM card UNDER the microSD.
    Damn, that’s really bad …

  • Shamoy Rahman

    OR YOU COULD GLUE OR TAPE THE 2ND SIM ON TOP OF THE SD CARD, EASY PEASY. There’s a guide on YouTube how to do it on the dual sim S7.

  • Shamoy Rahman
  • Mateus B. Cassiano

    Err, no, you analogy doesn’t make any sense. XZ is the successor of X Performance, which introduced the hybrid slot. XZs is just a refresh of XZ, so it have the hybrid slot as well. XZ Premium, on the other hand, is the direct successor of Z5 Premium and it already have signs of not having the hybrid slot (such as the dual SIM variant not having doubled storage size, like in the X/X performance/XZ/XZs).

    On the photos available on GSM Arena, the SIM tray of the single SIM variant of XZ Premium is shown as having the microSD slot and the SIM Card slot side by side (just like on the older Xperia devices with dedicated slots).

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Well I wish that what are you saying is true and I actually have no information on XZP Dual so it’s interesting to hear these info from you because this is important for me as I use both of SIM cards at the same time plus 64 GB of SD Card

  • ruba

    And here still waiting for IR Blaster u.u

  • At least the two SIM slots actually ALLOW for an SD card. OnePlus 3T has two SIM slots, but can NOT take in an SD card. That’s infinitely dumber than an “either-or” tray like XZs here.

  • Moisés

    XA 1 Ultra?

  • ew210

    I hope never .

  • Ziggy

    Well that’s not a good design choice, but also it’s annoying that the dual SIM version apparently will not be sold in Nordic countries at all.

    I was looking for the 64GB version of XZs, but only 32GB will be available…

  • Ziggy

    It’s really incredibly weird that Sony is so slowly giving bigger internal space for their phones. Like here 32GB is the regular and 64GB is only for the dual sim version that is not going to be even sold in many places. It will take years before they over 128GB versions. Otherwise Sony is usually great, good build quality, good water and dust protection, good camera hardware, and the Android they use these days is almost vanilla Android with some good changes which is excellent.

    Guys, not sure if you have seen pictures, but flap of XZ Premium looks kinda big. Bigger than one on Z3+.
    I believe it is true dual .. Like Z3, Z4 and Z5…

  • MG

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEl2vXdbfG8

    I think it will be a true dual too. On this video around the 2nd minute it shows that the SD is on different tray than the SIM and most likely on the dual SIM variant, the SIM tray will stay seperate too

  • Moisés

    Thanks

  • 3_nity
  • MG

    I have seen this photo, and you may have a point, but probably if the two Sims are rotated 90 degrees, they could fit (or one on top of each other.
    We shall wait and see. So far, all sony’s hybrid Sim phones, have both Sim and SD on the same tray on the single Sim configuration.

  • 3_nity

    Emmm. Make sense, Dud. :)
    I hope so.

  • 3_nity

    Nope!
