Xperia 1 missing T-Mobile LTE Band 71

It looks like the Xperia 1 doesn't have T-mobile's newest LTE band 71.  In addition, the US version doesn't have dual sim support.  Can anyone confirm?

@saleaway;

 

According to the US Xperia 1 page (https://www.sonymobile.com/us/products/phones/xperia-1/specifications/) it will not support the Dual SIM variant, but who nows that market better is the local support team, you should contact them: https://support.sonymobile.com/us/contactUs/

Regarding the LTE Band 71 it is indeed not supported by the Xperia 1, you can also see all the supported Bands in the specifications page.

Re: Xperia 1 missing T-Mobile LTE Band 71

Without band 71 and without dual sim is a disappointment.  The cheaper OnePlus 7 Pro has both of those options.  Most other flagships in the US all have band 71 so I don't know what Sony was thinking. 

I would like to upgrade my XZ Premium but will probably have to skip Sony this time around.  Fingers crossed that Xperia 2 has band 71 at least.  I was hoping the spec page had an error regarding band 71 but sounds like it really doesn't have it.
