Pixel 4 could finally have true dual SIM support

Like those older dual SIM phones, the current Pixel use Dual SIM Single Standby or DSSS. 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". While technically the Pixel 3 does offer dual-SIM support, the SIMs could not be used at the same time. This means that even though you can have two SIMs operating on two different networks, you will not be able to receive calls or texts to the inactive SIM slot.

With Apple providing dual SIM support on the latest iPhones in some regions and most Android phones offering the same, it's no surprise to see Google introducing actual dual SIM support on the upcoming Pixel 4. ESIM is only used by a few carriers around the world, including Sprint in the U.S., but it can act as a second SIM alongside the hardware SIM when activated. Making it possible for future Pixel smartphones to use both a physical SIM and eSim simultaneously. Although it is still very early for Pixel 4 leaks, there's already some information about Google's next-gen Pixel handsets.

We're nearly certainly going to get Android Q arriving with the Pixel 4, ready to take advantage of that dual-SIM functionality. Hopefully, Google will decide to flip the switch for the Pixel 3 when it gets Android Q. XDA is guessing that the Pixel 4 will support Dual SIM, Dual Standby (DSDS), which is certainly a logical conclusion. The same commit mentions that the Pixel 3 also supports dual-SIM use, but it's restricted to dogfooding.

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.
