Here are some of the key features of the devices:

 

  • You’ll never want to use your flash again. Night Sight lets you capture rich detail and color, even in the dark.
  • Capture beautiful portraits that focus on your subject as the background fades into a blur.
  • Save all your photos and videos with unlimited online storage in high quality with Google Photos.
  • Motion Auto Focus will make sure the people and pets in your shot stay sharp as you snap away.
  • Let the Google Assistant help screen your calls, so you know who’s calling and why before you pick up.
  • Work, play, stream and get more done with a powerful battery that charges quickly and lasts all day.
  • Keep your phone protected against the latest threats and performing at its best.
  • Dual SIM Single Active allows you to have two phone numbers on a single phone. Only one line is active at a time.

What is ‘Dual SIM Single Active’ (DSSA)?

  • 'Dual SIM Single Active’ allows you to have two phone numbers on a single phone. However, only one line is active at a time. You must select which line you want active; the other line will not have access to the network.
  • This function is currently available on the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.
  • This limited Dual SIM functionality is because Google does not allow for Dual SIM Dual Standby at this time.

Can I activate my Pixel 3a or Pixel 3a XL with eSIM on a contract?

  • Unfortunately, no, at this time eSIM is only available for / Bring Your Own Device plan activations.
  • If you wish to have a contract to lower the upfront cost of the device, you must activate or upgrade with a physical SIM card.

Are both lines connected to the network at the same time?

  • No, only one line is connected to the network at a time. In order for you to use line 2, you must make the switch through the settings.
  • Once you switch to line 2, line 1 will not have access to the network.

Can I activate an eSIM Card at a store?

  • Yes! However, only select Rogers stores are supporting eSIM Cards. Let me take a look which supporting store is closest to you.
