So if you are using one of the Samsung Galaxy phones listed above, which is running Exynos chipset, this post today will help you turn your single SIM Galaxy model into the dual sim variant for completely free. If you feel interested in this, let’s follow the tutorial.
Once your Galaxy phone becomes the dual sim variant successfully, the dual sim feature will work forever. You won’t have to repeat the below steps anymore.

- Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus (Exynos variants)
- Galaxy Note 8 (N950F, N950N)
Although the process of turning a single sim Galaxy phone into the dual-SIM version is free, you must make sure some things:
