USA G5s Plus - Single SIM Dual SIM Question

Is the difference between a G5s Plus sold in the US with a single SIM tray only in the tray?   Are there contacts internally to use a second SIM and if you purchase a tray that will accommodate the second SIM, will it work?     If not, is it a hardware or firmware restriction?  Could you change the OS or firmware to recognize the SIM if it is not a hardware restriction?

No to all. The Single sim phone has no second slim slot on the motherboard. The single sim phones only have a single IMEI number as well. No firmware can change that, even if the hardware was there.
