Many speculations have been brewing about the Google Pixel 4. Apparently, the new phone is expected to have a dual SIM card slot and other nifty features. Here’s what we know about the Google Pixel 4.

According to AndroidPolice, the Google Pixel 2 and 3 already have the dual SIM feature that allows users to use two active SIM cards for their phone. The dual SIM card support type depends on whether the users can freely use the two SIM cards on the go or will have to choose a specific setting to switch between the two. Regardless of which dual SIM card feature type Google adds to this device, it’ll surely be helpful to any user.

So far, the available SIM card type technologies are Dual Sim, Single Standby (DSSS) type, Dual Sim, Dual Standby (DSDS) type and Dual Sim, Dual Active (DSDA) Type. The DSSS type allows two SIM cards to be used, but only one can be used actively for texts and calls. Meanwhile, the DSDS type allows the second SIM to receive calls and texts instead of the first active one. Lastly, the DSDA type allows users to freely switch SIM cards for calls and text. We’ve yet to know if any of these SIM card features will be in the next Google Pixel. The new SIM card feature was found in a AOSP Gerrit scan, but Google can still change it as the new device has still not been announced.

For its release, speculations have claimed that the device could be unveiled or announced in the middle of the year. According to TechAdvisor, this phone could be launched by August 2019.  Moreover,  xda-developers also said that the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will arrive in early 2019 for Verizon before the Pixel 4.

For now, we’ll have to wait for more information to know the details surrounding Google Pixel 4.
