Nokia 6 and 8 are hybrid sims. Samsung A and J are true dual sims.
I'm referring to the Nokia model in Ed.YEO's link, comparison to Redmi 4 & Redmi 5.
Should be the Nokia 2 & Nokia 3.

No much different from Redmi 4A. Have dedicated microSD card slot & the upgraded Android version 7.1.2, Nougat. But the gyroscope is taken off.
Battery is still the same capacity at 3,000 mAh. Display is also the same at 5.0 inch, HD.
Should have upgraded it to 5.2 inch, HD instead.
Unlikely to spur sales turnover.

You say it.
Nothing to be excited about.
Expecting a slowdown in mobile handsets this year unless they can introduce new innovative solutions to spur sales turnover.

One is too big for ladies, the other is too small for men.
Very few 5.2" screens with dedicated Android navigation touch button mobile devices are available in the market.
But they failed to fulfil this segment of the market.

5.5 inch is nice for US, European markets but not so nice for the China & other Asian markets.
Must teach them human factors engineering design.

Actually, 5.5" 16:9 display is the most popular screen size for phones in Asia, that's why you see Chinese phone companies all launching 5.5" phones as a standard such as OPPO.

However, with the trend of 18:9 display, 6" 18:9 display will soon be the norm. A 6" 18:9 display is around the same as a 5.5" 16:9 display.

Still think a 5.2" at 16:9 display is more superior than any 18:9 displays which has not gained wide user acceptance yet.
Maybe it could fail because the images do not fully occupy the entire screen which is not nice for taking screenshots and exhibiting photo slideshows & photo screensavers, in my view.

Surprising given how Xiaomi themselves say only 2G is supported only for 2nd SIM used simultaneously.
