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.
ok thanks. The price differential not that great.

Did some reading, and found that, one of the reason why China, Taiwan and HK doesn't have e-sim is because, china's resistance to e-sim, (but china telcom had launched e-sim earlier this year.

I'm pretty interested to get a hk XR just because of the dual SIM, otherwise does anyone know if we can buy from apple.com.hk and then ship to Singapore?

Last time the boderlinx has hk address, but died already.

My target is iPhone Xs Max 256MB with physical dual-SIM capability.

How best to get a brand new genuine set? Great if we can get a forwarder to ship it over, direct from Apple HKG. Anyone's found one yet?

Donít forget there might be GST charges imposed by singapore customs when shipping from HK.

make sense this this can be considered as "limited edition"

HKD 10799 / 5.71 = SGD 1891

take 1891 with GST will be SGD 2023.

Since they sell for 2160, thats abt $137 for gross profit. minus all the logistics and operation cost, it's reasonable.

this whole esim saga is damn retarded. so apple actually went all out to 'create' versions that dont support dual sim, like sg.

What do you guys foresee about the possibility of Apple SG making physical dual SIM models available here in the near future?

Or do you think we're stuck with eSIM iPhones if we only want local sets?
