The Pixel 3a has a 5.6 inch 1080p display with 64/125GB of storage, and a plastic build rather than the glass body of the Pixel 3. It also contains a 3.5mm headphone jack and downward-firing speakers.
The Pixel 3a XL comes with Snapdragon 670 SoC, but it’s not sure whether the regular Pixel 3a will also include it.
The Pixel 3a will start at $399, and the Pixel 3a XL will start at $479. Whilst not as advanced as the regular Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which are priced at $799 and $899, they are certainly more affordable.
This is Tech Today’s Brandon Lee summarises all reveals so far in the video below:
All of the aforementioned phones are rumoured to be coming to T-mobile too, but we’ll find out for sure if the phones are revealed by Google on May 7th.
Google has recently admitted that their higher end Pixel phones were not selling well, but have expressed hope that these Pixel 3a series would rescue their phone business.
