Most of the modern smartphones come with 4G connectivity. However, only a few of them allow you to use 4G on both SIM cards at the same time. What happens with most of the smartphones is that the active data SIM (be it 1 or 2) connects to the 4G LTE network, while the other SIM falls back to 2G or 3G networks.
The Nokia 7 Plus is going to change the above. It will be one of the first few phones to offer 4G LTE connectivity on both the SIM cards at the same time. The 7 Plus is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 processor which is built keeping these 4G requirements in mind. So, while the 7 Plus doesn’t offer dual 4G yet, it can easily be enabled via a software upgrade because the processor supports it.
Juho Sarvikas, CPO, HMD Global confirmed in a tweet that the dual LTE support is coming soon. He was replying to a review which mentioned the above issue as one of the cons of the Nokia 7 Plus.
Thanks Sid for the awesome review and don't worry, 2nd sim will support LTE shortly!

While there are no fixed dates, it’s good to hear that it is coming. So, that’s yet another reason to buy the Nokia 7 Plus besides the 18:9 display and a big battery. Bought one yet?
Update: As per a video by YouTuber iTushar, the Nokia 7 plus supports Dual VoLTE already. So, the previous software upgrade has already enabled Dual SIM Dual VoLTE (DSDV) on the device. Tushar is able to use his two O2 SIM cards on his Nokia 7 plus. Both work fine over 4G LTE simultaneously.
It seems that the reviewer was using an older version of software or the update is not yet released in India.
