On eBay, I found a Samsung A14 5G sm-a146u1/ds for sale, and I believe that phone supports dual sim cards because the Settings / About Phone shows two IMEI's.

But, it has only space for ONE sim card in its sim card tray.

Why?

Hello pauljreger, welcome to the Samsung Community and thank you for posting. I understand you would like clarification as to why the Samsung A14 supports 2 SIM cards but only has 1 SIM card tray.
There are devices such as S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra that come with a compact dual SIM card tray. This tray has space for one nano SIM card on the top, and another on the underside. The following link advise more about how to use or manage dual SIM cards on your phone.
