Next Google Pixel SmartphoneCould Feature Improved Dual SIM Functionality

Google's Pixel 4 may offer improved dual-SIM functionality, according to an AOSP commit Google Pixel 4 could come with improved dual-SIM support: Report

According to a report by XDA Developers, recent commits to Android Open Source Project's (AOSP) Gerrit, Google "will be adding property values in the framework and Telephony service to tell if a device has hardware support for multiSIM functionality". The most common is Dual SIM Dual Standby, wherein both SIMs are registered on the network at once, and both can receive calls / SMS, but generally only if the other SIM isn't already being used for that goal.

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.

Second woman accuses Virginia's Lt Governor of sexual assault
While Northam pushes back, Fairfax is under increasing pressure to resign over two allegations of sexual assault. To Howard and many of his students, though, the answer is clear. "This is not a political issue", he says.

As a daily user of a Dual SIM phone, I know that going forward I would struggle without the functionality. This means that both the eSIM and the SIM card slot can not be both active at the same time. Like Apple's newest iPhone, those Pixel phones have a tray for one SIM card while the second is provided by an eSIM. 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. However, this is rare as it requires the device to have two radios.

The Googler seems to suggest that this year's Pixel phones, which will run on Android Q, of course, will have DSDS dual SIM functionality. Specifically, the comment cites the implementation as necessary to differentiate the 2018 and 2019 Pixel - in other words, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 4. 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. While technically the Pixel 3 does offer dual-SIM support, the SIMs could not be used at the same time. Unfortunately, older Pixel models likely won't see this feature trickle down through software updates.
