But if you exchange it in Singapore, your phone will no longer be physical dual SIM

its dual SIM, dual standby. 4G will be displayed next to the SIM card u select for data. And both SIM slots can support 4G/LTE, just like all latest dual SIM androids.

Some smaller resellers in HK sell iPhone XS max cheaper than Apple store, but because there’s very little documentation control as they only issue their own store receipt, I don’t dare buy from them. And it could be slightly used set as well, many unknown factors.

Some of these smaller resellers really ah beng shop, scared kena whack.

You can check out price.com.hk to find out which shop sells the cheapest iPhones or even other electronic items. Good site to compare prices between resellers. They have an app too

The answer is no.

If the answer is yes then this thread won’t exist

Transit no official Apple resellers, though there are some Apple accessories and smaller mainline products at a corner of some of the electronics stores there.

Service centres outside HK and China might not replace due to unavailbility of dual SIM XS/XSM in their inventory, or ask you to acknowledge that they will replace the unit with a non-dual SIM unit.

No lah, the local SG SIM tray is the same as all the past year’s iPhones, but the HK/CN SIM trays allows u to put 2 nano SIMS back to back on the same tray. And there’s a special plastic clip for the bottom SIM card to prevent it from dropping out when u invert it upside down .

I thought they could share the same sim tray design...but only do the trick via software to enable the esim/physical dual sim.

eg if you put 2 sims back to back on local set, the software will not recognize.

u can do simple maths here

let's take the XSM 256gb for example

SG sell for 2039
HK sell for 10799

Convert HK 10799 to SGD is 1894.56 (take SGD 1 = HKD 5.7)

take SG without GST is 1905 (2039 / 1.07)

as u can see, HK set sell quite close to SG without GST. difference is about S$10. unless u need the 2 x physical sim, no point getting the HK set.

and i believe HK got no GST so there wun be GST refund.
