S21 ULTRA Dual Sim vs Single Sim

So I live in Canada, and in the USA and Canada we have the snapdragon model, my question is this, we only have the single sim tray, but someone who took apart the phone saw that it has a dual sim reader in the phone like the exynos models. So my question is if I replaced or had a dual sim tray would my single sim S21 ultra in Canada be able to read it.

Thanks!

No as the phone is built inside / restricted to only accept one sim card.

It potentially does not have the internal hardware and software such as sim card manager to run two sims. Or it's been restricted to only work with one sim.

Swapping out the trays won't work unfortunately.

I live in the UK and wanted the Snapdragon N20 Ultra 5G so I imported mine from Hong Kong which has the dual sim options @Sheroz

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

Have you checked the SIM tray's back? My one is double sided so you put one on the front and one on the back but it looks like a single tray. It took me a week to notice this.

It is no big deal of course, 1 sim is plenty for me, was interested why some phones are different from others, apparently depending on the country some don't have 5G at all inside, even though they have 5G on the box, so luckily in Canada and USA we have 5G compatible phones

Yes there is only  1 sim card slot, I have been noticing that some phones depending on the country are different, might want to check if your phone has 5G compatibility

I would have to travel to the nearest city with 5g to check I live in the middle of nowhere, we just got 4g, 1 or 2 years ago.
