I think e-Sim is the way Apple wants it to go for dual Sim, but Apple face strong resistance in China to use e-Sim. That’s why they have no choice but to develop a physical dual-Sim phone. And Apple is losing market share in China due to the strong rise of Huawei and other China phones, Apple got no choice but to “somehow” make dual-Sim happen in China,hk,Macau. Hence they build physical dual-Sim

Dual Sim phones have been out for so Long, almost all the China branded have dual Sim for very Long. But all using physical dual, hence I assume China not keen to go into e-Sim

Depends on how fast China adopt e-Sim, otherwise I’m certain Apple would continue to make 2 different variant, one for China market and the other for rest of the world

next year iPhone you see will have physical dual sim.
if apple making dual sim model, a lot of users who already bought the iPhone xs sure kpkb
Can but it will take quite sometime for them to do a 1 to 1 exchange as they need to ship back to Hong Kong.
For these reasons, I'm seeing if I can wait until next year.

how do u noe it'll be a monthly subscription model?

anyway, i also wun be interested in esim bcoz i still prefer to have 2 physical sim. its more versatile and i can easily split into 2 phones or change into andriod without going through the telco's app and whatever qr code.

versatility is key. if they can sort out the esim implementation, then it'll be a different question.

Bro where you got this information from?

Also we know that the HK physical dual Sim model is only for the Max.

I Guess the esim local sets applies to both max and non max?

Singapore supports esim but whether or not there’s monthly changes it’s a separate question.

The govt wants us consumer to be able to switch platform easily and not die directly to telco. Example my SIM card is strictly Singtel, if port over is a new SIM card. I’m supposing esim would work entirely different

how do u noe it'll be a monthly subscription model?

anyway, i also wun be interested in esim bcoz i still prefer to have 2 physical sim. its more versatile and i can easily split into 2 phones or change into andriod without going through the telco's app and whatever qr code.

The reason why esim in Sg is not common is because telco also resisting it .

They earn from SIM card 29.90 for each card.

If they convert to esim. This profit will be lost.

The esim is there few years back but no telco wants to make it available for consumer

Thought eSim will cost consumer $10.70 per month? Or was it provided so long with the telco?

How come eSim will cost consumer 10.70 per mth?

Even Numbershare for  watch u only pay 6.90 for the service and not the eSim.
They only change 10.70 when u first reg.

you can get a prepaid HK number, not expensive, about $10, and they wont send any SMS for verification unlike the past years. Or you can join in the walk-in queue when the apple stores open at 10am, but the walk-in queue will be longer waiting time, good chance can get a set, but not the 512GB cos there seems to be a flipping market for 512GB in HK.

basically the most important upgrade frm my X is not available here in SG. so i have to wait for HK set.

esim not really sure when or how local telco will implement it. but use case from watch is diff and if they'll charge monthly for those availing it, is a possibility. guess have to wait.

ios 12.1 beta enables e-sim functionality. so hope local telco works with that timeline as well after official 12.1 is released.
