As above.

What dual SIM phones are currently available in SA?

What great dual SIM phone did you import?

Looking to purchase a couple dual SIM phones for the office.

Doogee BL7000 - wife's phone. Same as the BL5000 but a bigger battery (a bit heavy for some people?)
Doogee S50 - my phone. Rough and tough is what I need
Doogee S55 - my son's Christmas present. Just in from China. Smaller screen than the S50 but fits the pocket better. Look on YouTube when a guy boils it in water on the stove.

You should also ask for dedicated SD card slot (not sharing a secondary SIM).

Huawei Y3, Y6, Y7, Y9 models have dual SIM option, plus dedicated SD card slot. Probably true for the entire Y-series 2018 models with submodels such like Prime, Pro, etc. If you buy from Telkom or Cell C, it should be dual SIM model.

Y3 is ideal for employees, it runs Android 8 Go version, it cost R999 and does the job.

Huawei P-models may have shared secondary SIM slot with SD card - more expensive models do.

Also look at how much internal storage the phone has. 32Gb should be sufficient for most users that are not carrying around their music and movie collections. If you need to take many high quality photos then this would obviously impact the storage you need. If the phone is a 4/64Gb or 6/128Gb you are unlikely to need a sd card so a dedicated slot may not be necessary. Bearing in mind that people use their phones in different ways.

Huawei manufacture most of the P series and Mate series as both single sim and dual sim models, so not quite as simple as saying all of them.

Just got a Samsung J6. Takes two sim cards and a micro SD card. Not a top of the range phone by any means but suits me just fine. Also OTG enabled which is a bonus.
