Earlier this week, Sony France said in a tweet that the dual-SIM variant of the company’s Xperia XZ Premium smartphone features the ability to use two SIM cards and a microSD card simultaneously.

The handset’s user manual confirms this:
Even some of those who have purchased the phone have also confirmed the presence of hybrid SIM tray:
