Triple SIM phones are a rarity. While the world has embraced dual SIM mobile phones across every stratum, triple SIM phones are still hard to run into. Such phone models are not released on an annual cycle, so if you really need one, you might have to settle for a model from two years ago – or three.
Why would anyone require a triple SIM mobile phone? To take advantage of three wireless networks, the same way many others need to be able to use two networks? That has to be it. But we are guessing that if you are hunting for a triple SIM mobile phone, it has to be really important to you.
I did all the hard work and fished out the best triple SIM phones available in 2023 (this article was originally published in 2017 and has been updated). Have a look, and may the force be with you.

Triple SIM Phones in 2023
If you want a triple SIM phone in 2023, no mainstream mobile phone company makes any. As a matter of fact, I do not know of any triple SIM smartphones in production (and I searched quite a bit). It is safe to say that smartphones with more than two SIMs are effectively history.
A few Chinese manufacturers still produce triple SIM feature phones. One name that is fairly known for making triple SIM feature phones is Maxfone. The Maxfone M128 is a triple SIM feature phone you can buy in 2023 if you don’t have a problem with shopping on Chinese retail websites.
As a feature phone, that means you won’t be installing any apps or multitask. You get a tiny 1.77-inch display. Also, forget about 3G, 4G, and 5G. This is a 2G GSM phone, so if your carrier has decommissioned it’s 2G and 3G networks, this won’t work for you today.
If you want a quad SIM phone (that is four SIM cards), Maxfone has one for you – the V12.
If you are interested in one of these, Maxfone’s triple and quad SIM phones cost between $15 and $25 U.S. dollars. Check them up on AliExpress, BangGood, and other Chinese retail websites.
