Google Pixel 3a launch confirmed

From the circle of well-known leakers, it was proposed that the Pixel 3a with a 5.6-inch display and the Pixel 3a XL with a 6-inch screen will unbox in three color finishes, namely Just Black, Clearly White and Purple-ish.

Fast charging is here too, with 7 hours of use in just 15 minutes.

If you'd like to access more information about both of these devices, feel free to check out our Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL preview, while we wait for Google to make both of these devices official.

In recent generations the Google Pixel phones have gained a reputation for quality mobile photography. On the whole, the device looks much identical to the earlier released Pixel 3 device, featuring noticeable bezels on the front and dual tone glass and metal finish on the back. This puts the Indian pricing of both the devices around Rs 35,000 and Rs 42,000 but we can assume that if Google wants its devices to sell, the price would have to be slightly lower for the Indian market.

Google is reportedly going to reveal the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL on May 7th. Unlike the Pixel 3 smartphones, this is actually has a thicker bezel. Both the models will be backed by a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. At first, the devices were called Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite, but their actual names are Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.

As for the chipsets, it's unclear if a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 or 670 CPU will be used, but the 3a is said to have a 3 000mAh battery and 3a XL fitted with a larger 3 700mAh offering. It is also said that the phones would come with rear fingerprint sensors and run Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box.

Lastly, Lee's states that the Pixel 3a will start at $399, while the bigger 3a XL will start at $479.

With the launch day approaching, there have been plenty of leaks about the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL lately.

In addition to what has been rumoured on Twitter, Droid Life has reported some of the key features of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.

The Pixel 3a, expected to launch at Google I/O 2019 next week, therefore, takes a relatively straightforward route to hopefully turning things around.
