Future Xperia XZ Premium, XA1, XA1 Ultra versions to let you use two SIMs, microSD card simultaneously

Sony Xperia XZ Premium dual will come with come with slots for two SIMs, one microSD card
The French branch of Sony spilled the beans that the Xperia XZ Premium will be getting a proper dual-SIM version, and so will the Xperia XA1 and the Xperia XA1 Ultra.

Now, what do we mean by "proper"? In a world where the majority of  dual SIM devices allow you to either use two SIMs or a SIM card and a microSD one at the same time, the aforementioned Sony devices above will boast two SIM slots and a dedicated microSD one, allowing you to enjoy the services of two carriers and expanded storage at the same time. 

That's definitely not the first time Sony does this: many previous Xperia devices have been available in such Dual SIM editions, most notably the Xperia Z5, Xperia X Performance, Xperia XA, and others.

We have no idea when the "Dual" version of the XZ Premium, XA1, and XA1 Ultra will be hitting the streets; we have no idea what markets these will be arriving in, but as usual, we expect Sony to release those devices across the developing markets and skip the States. We'll let you know if we know more!
