So, I was gifted a brand new Samsung S20 FE 5G - unlocked but they did not know I still need my old sim to run some banking apps (so - need two sims running). The model number of the phone is SM-G781W which is a single sim model for Canada.

One of my network providers has e-Sim support. So, is it possible to flash the dual network firmware on this S20 FE?

Any comments?

Edit:

The sim tray has some 'ridges' in so as to not allow placing a second sim. May be a simple sim tray swap might work?

try looking on eBay for a sim tray. maybe you can flash unlocked US firmware, but don't get your hopes too high.
have Canadian firmware ready if needed.

I would try U or U1 firmware (can't remember which is the unlocked one) over the international versions. the B firmware is more likely to have frequency differences.

Any luck with this project? I assume it would be possible, I peered into the SIM/SD slot and think I saw the hardware for the the second SIM above the SD hardware.

I also have the SM-G981W Canadian Variant. I just bought it yesterday, knowing that it had a faulty SIM reader slot that can only be replaced by taking apart the phone and resoldering. My newest phone prior to this one is a Galaxy S8, so I didn't know a lot about eSIM and had assumed I could just use eSIM and assumed very, very wrong.

I'm also wondering if I can flash international firmware to enable eSIM (I have no SIM card manager).

I don`t think You need other firmware. If the software detects esim it will just start to appear.
