Google's Official Website Just Verified The Pixel 3a

The codenames of the devices are "Coral" and "Flame", written nearby the Google Pixel 4 and the Google Pixel 4 XL respectively.

The Pixel 4 is expected to launch later in the year, while the Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL are rumoured to launch much sooner. So, it is interesting that "flame" would be the first time Google breaks from its usual naming convention. The leaked cases gives an idea about the design of both the smartphones. While the case renders show the Pixel 3a in black and the 3a XL in white, the rumours also hint at a new Iris colour variant in tow. Both the handsets, Pixel 3 and OnePlus 6T are potentially better value for money than the latest Samsung's phones. The Counterpoint Research numbers show that, while it's not insignificant that Google is succeeding in convincing many smartphone owners to switch over to the Pixel, the fact that most are former Samsung owners means that Google isn't winning many new fans for the Pixel from outside the Android ecosystem. If these renders are to be believed, both these devices are going to have a single camera unit on front and back. The rear will feature a fingerprint scanner and a Google logo at the bottom. While the Pixel 3a will be the smaller sibling with a 5.6-inch display, the Pixel 3a XL will be larger one with a slightly bigger 6.0-inch display - this is still an average size by 2019 standards, but the extra-large bezels might just make the devices tall enough anyway. Pricing is said to reach as low as $300 for the Pixel 3a and $350 for the Pixel 3a XL, although it is unknown whether this estimation is based on conversion of local currency, expected retail value or the value of shipment.

The Pixel 3A might be powered by the mid-range Snapdragon 660/675 processor. Woot only has the silver version of the phone, but it has 128GB of storage.

Over the past few weeks, we have been surrounded with leaks and rumors surrounding Google's upcoming Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL mid-range phones, and now details about the flagship Pixel 4 series have also surfaced. It is likely to run Android 9 Pie OS, and offer 4GB RAM option.
