Dual SIM 4G & 3G Phones Released in Australia 2017Print
UPDATE OCTOBER 2017: Since this post in May, there have been many more Dual SIM 4G+3G phones released, such as the Motoroola Moto Z2 Play, Moto G5S/G5S Plus, Huawei Y7 and LG Q6. Check them out in the Mobileciti Dual SIM 4G/3G page.
After the success of our first Dual Sim 4G+3G Phones post in late 2016, there are now many more dual sim phones released in the first six months of 2017. This is in response to the imminent closure of all Australian 2G networks, with Telstra already shut down last year, Optus shutting down 1 August 2017, and Vodafone shutting down 30 September 2017. As most older Dual SIM phones are only able to run 4G and 2G at once, the closure of 2G means that these phones will no longer be dual SIM simultanously. The good news is that there are now many phones which are 4G+3G Dual SIM, and therefore unaffected by the closure of 2G. If you value Dual SIM functionality, it is best to plan ahead and get yourself a 4G+3G Dual SIM phone before the closures, so you remain unaffected.
A Note: Not all versions of the phones listed below are Dual-SIM, most overseas models are Single-SIM. We can only guarantee that the official Australian unbranded stock are all Dual SIM, so make sure you buy from Australian Sellers like Mobileciti who can guarantee 100% Australian stock with local manufacturers warranty.
