If this is the case, why not demonstrate the capabilities of the non-photogrammetry regions?

I think they have. More than half of the screenshots show non-photogrammetry areas. One reason for not showing more regions in Asia or Africa (apart from the above mentioned) could be that they aren’t ready autogen-wise.

I also find it really hard to believe that the developers don't have photogrammetry of Hong Kong or Singapore, housing two of the most famous airports in the world.

Unfortunately, that seems to be the case. It’s not the developers who are to blame though but Bing Maps.

But I agree. I'd love to see more areas outside the US and Europe as well.

What we know now based on the peviews and tech videos is that anything outside the photogrammetry areas is procedural. It's generated based on the vegetation and infrastructure footprints / data fetched by Azure AI. The AI scanned the Bing Imagery.

So I am not sure it has anything to do with the Bing Maps.

The reason could be Marketing driven or the way the procedural rules are applied outside the US and EU.

We saw screenshots from Dubai and it looks procedural so I suppose the rules apply in a similar way to other places. 

Unless they need to refine the rules to make the rest of the cities have a plausible aspect (i.e: architecture types and height)

What I meant is that it is Bing who decides what areas have photogrammetry and not the developers (in response to SterlingCrimson92’s statement above).

That's what I was trying to say in the first part of my post (as an addition to what's been mentioned before). Pure speculation of course.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned somewhere, but over on the Flight Simulator site there is a community update linking to a map of all the screenshots.  Very interesting!

OK, just seen the previous post about this, saw Feb 13th update at the top of the list and didn't think there was anything new.
