It's been quite fascinating to see the Pixel line grow and evolve over the past few years, and going into 2019 with this momentum, Google's in a position to hold onto that title of owning the fastest-growing smartphone brand in the U.S.

The information comes from an Android Open Source Project (AOSP) Gerrit commit spotted by XDA Developers. It doesn't have two main cameras nor does use the full extent of dual SIM capabilities. ESIM is only used by a few carriers around the world, including Sprint in the United States, 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. You'll have to switch between the two networks to receive calls and messages from the respective network. The same commit mentions that the Pixel 3 also supports dual-SIM use, but it's restricted to dogfooding.

Like Apple's latest iPhones, Google's upcoming Pixel will allow users to more seamlessly receive texts and calls from two networks at once; a pretty nice boon for those whose primary cellular provider has spotty coverage in certain areas. 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. You get to save $450 when you buy two Pixel 3 XL phones, $400 when you buy a Pixel 3 XL and a Pixel 3, and $350 when you buy two Pixel 3 phones. Just as interesting, however, is the note that the Pixel 3 does have that as well but is limited to internal testing.

With Valentine's Day coming up, you have the flawless occasion of buying a couple of discounted new Pixel phones for you and your significant other, especially if you're both fans of Google's Pixel phones.
