Google Pixel 3 XL has been launched for some time. Although it is one of the champions in low light photography, the lack of Dual SIM support might turn away some potential users.

Interestingly, Android Q Beta 2 has changed all this with the inclusion of DUAL SIM DUAL Standby mode (DSDS) mode on the handsets. With that enabled, you will be able to use an operator with eSIM and use the Physical SIM slot for another SIM card.

To enable that, you would need to participate in the Android Q beta program. Once you have updated your phone to Android Q beta 2, you are ready to enable this option.

Using the keypad enter *#*#4636#*#* and it will show you the phone info.

Enable DSDS by enable the option by setting the button to ON stat

One that is done, you will be able to see you have 2 “SIM SLOTS” available on the phone.
