Google Pixel 4 Could Get Improved Dual SIM Functionality with Android Q

  • Google's Pixel 4 may offer improved dual-SIM functionality, according to an AOSP commit

Never mind the fact that eSIM support is very limited in the United States and the rest of the world, the Pixel's Dual SIM mode is one that goes back to the early 2000s.

Instead of allowing for what is effectively two SIMs (one physical, one digital) but restricting customers to using only one at a time, the Pixel 4's dual-SIM support could eliminate that barrier entirely. The AOSP Gerrit is an online collaboration tool where developers who can share code changes - called commits - and merge them into Android's source code. There is also DSDA or Dual SIM, Dual Active, which requires two different radios and allows the SIMs to be used simultaneously - but the smartphone industry mostly uses DSDS for dual SIM support on handsets. DSDS is what's used by most dual-SIM Android phones and the newest iPhones; here, the second SIM can receive calls and texts if the main SIM isn't being used at that moment for the same objective. You can make and receive calls and messages on both networks without switching as long as the SIM isn't being used for that same goal.

Google's Pixel devices have always been the talk of the town, and before there is any official information on the upcoming Pixel 4, we know that it is going to be released in the last quarter of this year along with its siblings. You aren't required to purchase two identical phones to take advantage of the promotion, any combination of Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL phones will work regardless of their storage capacity.

In the night's other last-16 game, teenager Nicolo Zaniolo scored twice to lead Roma to a 2-1 victory. We all are very optimistic and positive, it's just one result and we're in a good moment.

Before then we might well get treated to the Pixel 3 Lite - Google is rumored to be readying a mid-range version of its 2018 flagship phone, built with slightly cheaper materials and a less powerful chipset on board.

Beyond that, there's no other word regarding other features. XDA is guessing that the Pixel 4 will support Dual SIM, Dual Standby (DSDS), which is certainly a logical conclusion.

Additionally, the comment says that developers are using the Pixel 3 to test DSDS functionality, which means the Pixel 3 can support DSDS.
