Given that Samsung has launched dual-SIM variants of its flagship smartphones in the past, one would expect the company to do the same for the Galaxy S9 as well. Therefore, it's not surprising to see that the dual-SIM variants of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ have been certified in Malaysia. Samsung fans looking forward to picking up the new flagship can now rest assured that they will be able to have two SIM cards activated on the device.

Dual-SIM Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ bearing model numbers SM-G960F/DS and SM-G965F/DS respectively have been spotted in SIRIM's database. SIRIM, or the Standard and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia, is a government-owned certification, inspection and testing organization in the country.

It's also not surprising to see that these are the Exynos 9810-powered models because Samsung uses its own processor for flagship smartphones in all other markets except a select few like North America. If recent benchmark results are any indication, the Exynos 9810-powered models will be in a league of their own as far as performance is concerned.

Pricing and availability for the handset in Malaysia will only be confirmed after Samsung officially unveils its new flagship on February 25. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are expected to be released in the country by mid-March.
