Google Pixel 3A powered by MSM8953 (SD625) appears on Geekbench

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

Google’s Pixel 4 could come with dual-SIM functionality enabled

The dual SIM support is interesting for a couple of reasons. Never mind the fact that eSIM support is very limited in the U.S. and the rest of the world, the Pixel's Dual SIM mode is one that goes back to the early 2000s.

Google launched Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones in October and both smartphones have been praised for their exceptional cameras. To that end, a new piece of information suggests that the Google's next Pixel smartphone will feature better dual SIM functionality, among other features.

The nomination of the king's older sister, who has starred in soap operas and an action movie was a shocking move. Her shock nomination broke with a long-standing tradition of members of the royal family staying out of politics.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 phones support Dual SIM Single Standby (DSSS) technology, which means you can't receive calls or texts on the inactive SIM. Interestingly, the same commit stated that the dual SIM capability can be enabled on Pixel 3 devices, even though it's only for dogfooding. Making it possible for future Pixel smartphones to use both a physical SIM and eSim simultaneously.

The Google Pixel 3 series of smartphone may have been out on the market for less than six months, but that isn't stopping the search engine from marching forward with the development of its successor. Now, the latest rumour comes about the next-generation Pixel smartphones - which logically could be called Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL. XDA is guessing that the Pixel 4 will support Dual SIM, Dual Standby (DSDS), which is certainly a logical conclusion. 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 goal. In the meantime, Google has apparently confirmed a Pixel 4 feature already, thanks to an updated to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) Gerrit. And a revelation a few weeks ago said that Android Q would receive native support for 3D facial recognition, prompting us to speculate that the Pixel 4 may feature Google's response to Face ID.
