    Is the dual sim variant of the 950XL going to use nano sim like my 1520 or micro sim like my newer 640 dual sim?

    I think microsim would be easier to deal with, but we are going to find out soon hopefully.

    Edit: Just wondered what the trends were for previous true flagships. The Icon is nano sim (?) but I don't know about any others,

    I'm leaning towards nano sim. Hopefully they'll incorporate it into the back cover area. That would be nice.

    That's a for sure, since the battery is removable just like the 640.

    We don't know for sure but considering its a fancy phone and that the 1520, 930 and 830 use nanoSIM as well, I'm willing to put money on it being a nanoSIM.

    What's the deal with the dual SIMs, anyhow?
    Surely one isn't CDMA & the other GSM, is it??

    Nope, both GSM. It's so you can have sims from different carriers, mostly for those who travel.....and it's a bloody LIFESAVER!

    Just asking for a carrier unlocked CDMA device period would be too good to be true lol.

    So maybe I missed it in the announcement specs, but will the 950XL dual sim be nano or micro? I need to get a new sim ASAP and want to be sure I get the right size....

    Most excellent, thank you! I'm keeping my 640 dual sim as well so I just orded nano sim cards with the micro sim adapters for when I want to use them in my 640.

    Awesome! Can't wait to get this phone!!!

    Yea, most phones are coming with NanoSims these days....I have noticed this trend over the last few months on newer model phones
