Monday's feature drop for the Pixel phones included a fun nugget that wasn't in the official changelog: it appears you can now use both a physical SIM card and an eSIM on 5G networks at the same time. Previously users who had both installed and operational were limited to LTE speeds, even if their carrier had 5G service in the area.
The OnePlus 8T is only a few weeks old, but a deal on the device has already popped up online. B&H Photo's deal of the day offers up an unlocked, 128GB OnePlus 8T plus a pair of OnePlus Buds — all for the price of $629. That's a great deal on a 5G-compatible device with dual-SIM capabilities and some high-quality Bluetooth buds.
The Galaxy S20 may be the most expensive "entry-level" flagship Samsung has ever launched, but as always with the company's handsets, the S20 can already be had at much lower prices than the $1000 MSRP. And just like that, we dug up the unlocked international dual-SIM variant of the phone on eBay, where it's currently sold for the all-time-low of $610 (which is $10 less than what we saw before).
Xiaomi is cautioning Mi A3 owners not to download a global firmware update because of "a serious bug" that prevents dual-SIM customers from utilizing both slots. The warning comes after an Indian user came into trouble with his OTA.
The Galaxy Note10+ is an excellent handset, which unfortunately cost a whopping $1,100 when it came out. As its replacement might be around the corner, prices are continuing to drop. The dual-SIM international version is now down to $740 on eBay, which is $360 off the original price.
If you're the type to read Android Police (hello), you probably have seen this story before. Last we wrote about getting a dual-SIM Galaxy Note10 for less than retail price, it was in February. Prices have recently taken another dip, so if you're quick enough, you can snap a 256GB unit for just $630.
The Galaxy S20 series is quite expensive, with even the lowest-end model costing $1,000 in the United States. If you're not picky about cellular reception, the dual-SIM S20+ is just $800 on eBay, and now the dual-SIM S20 is down to $749.99.
The first developer preview of Android 11 is here, and even though it's just the first of many pre-release builds, there are still a ton of new features and changes. We've already written dedicated posts for most of the visible updates in Android 11 — you can see all of our coverage here — but there are also some smaller tweaks that aren't quite substantial enough for several paragraphs of explanations.
Back in February, preliminary data seemed to indicate the Pixel 4 would support dual-SIM dual-standby, which allows two separate lines to be provisioned simultaneously on the same device. The feature became fully available on the Pixel 3a thanks to the Android 10 upgrade, and it's only fair to expect Google's latest flagship would also support DSDS. Although the company hasn't officially confirmed this, some evidence indicates the handset should handle the functionality.
