But I need LTE Band 20, so it doesn't work...

You don't "need it" B20 is for 4G, and operators use plenty of other 4G frecuency bands. You have 5G and 3G as well, unless your operator exclusively uses B20 (which would be definitely weird). I've had Xhinese Xiaomis for the past 4 years and never missed that band at all. In Spain, only Yoigo uses it for instance.

I need it. I know. I already had a phone without Band 20.. I live in Germany and mobile networks are worse than in any other country (perhabs only better than in North Korea ;)). Without Band 20 you have most of the time only 2G...

You can buy for example from Gear.. best Global version with fully support EU frequencies, of course B20 too, and have Dual Sim slot for operate with two mobile networks. I already bought it for 800eur.(I used coupon),. In May will be delivered,because it is pre-sale.

Yep. That's what I'm seeing too. I don't know why they can't put band 12 & 20 on a dual sim global phone, it's not just Xiaomi, it seems to be all the Chinese manufacturers. I always have to buy the Chinese variant because I need bands 1,2,4,7 & 12, but then I'm struggling when in Europe with no band 20.

Until now every Xiaomi phone im Europe had Dual SIM with Band 20, Mi 10 is the first and only that it hasn't both...

Yes, the lack of dual sim support is very disappointing and hard to understand, except as someone else mentioned, possibly as part of a deal with the carriers.

Why, there is free place for 2 sim at sim tray? This could happen if the sim tray had places for a sim+sd. Only if the EU version is a cn version, modified only by B20, so by changing the sim tray to one from a cn version to have two sim.

In that post he said that it's possible, but at now he didn't try with 2 physical SIM. He is waiting for a SIM card holder from China.
I think that it's early to say it's possible.

Sorry, you are wrong...

in post #220 he wrote that he is waiting for new SIM card holder
in post #223 (last sentences) he confirmed he was succesfull -> "Und siehe da, zwei SIM-Karten und zwei IMEIs werden angezeigt... Man hat B20 und die Option für zwei SIM-Karten")

Also Tradingshenzshen confirms in this tutorial that it is possible to get dual-sim on a global-rom device with B20 and single-sim
