[Deal Alert] Dual-SIM Galaxy S9+ down to $754.99 on eBay

For a couple of years now, Samsung has sold their flagships with Snapdragon chips in the US and Exynos chips everywhere else.

You can now pick up a dual-SIM S9+ for $754.99, which is lower than previous deals we've posted about.

[Deal Alert] Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy S9+ (SM-G965F/DS) for $769.99 on eBay

The Galaxy S9 and S9+, Samsung's flagships for 2018, went on sale last month (just three weeks ago, in fact), but you can already find good deals online if you don't want to pay the full MSRP. Just last week, eBay posted a deal on the Galaxy S9 and S9+ for $709.99 and $819.99, respectively, which comes out to between $10 and $20 less than buying directly from Samsung, plus any additional tax savings. Today, we've got another eBay deal on the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S9+ for just $769.99, a total savings of $70.

If you belong to either (or both) of those parties, you may want to have a look at these deals for the dual-SIM Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ on eBay.

Android Messages adds RCS support for dual-SIM phones

A few months ago, Cody discovered in a teardown of Android Messages that the app would start supporting RCS on dual-SIM phones. Up until recently, if you had a device with a dual-SIM slot, you couldn't get the RCS features to work in Messages even if you had only one SIM inserted and it came from an operator who already implemented RCS. Now, support is finally rolling out to them.

We were first alerted to this by tipster Truls Monsen who was able to activate RCS in Android Messages 2.9.051 on a Moto G5 and G5 Plus for the first time, both unlocked devices with dual SIM support and having a SIM from Telenor.

An update to Google's Phone app began rolling out to users earlier today. Besides enabling the seamless video calling feature with Duo, which also works on v14, this update comes with a few additions of its own. The previously discussed Assisted Dialing feature for international travelers has been enabled and is ready to make life a little easier, and users on Android 8.1 will now see the white navigation bar that's been creeping into a few of Google's apps. If you're using a dual-SIM phone, you might also be getting the option to pick your SIM immediately before a call, though this might not be live yet.

A new version of Google Contacts came out yesterday, but it unfortunately doesn't seem to solve the recent issue with contact syncing that some Oreo users are reporting.
