With many teasers, Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL is allegedly making a debut on May 7 and will release in India on May 8th! Pixel smartphones were always something to look put for as they come with great features. The announcement will be made in this year’s Google I/O developer conference.
Here is the information on Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL before its release:
Pixel 3A is going to have a resolution of 1080 x 2220 with its operating system being Android v9.0. Backed with an Octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor it supports 4GB RAM, Adreno 615 GPU for all the video game enthusiasts out there and an on-board storage of 64GB. Pixel 3A has 3000mAh battery with a 5.6-inch full HD+display.
Pixel 3A is equipped with various sensors like fingerprint sensor, proximity sensor, light sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. As far as camera goes it has 8MP front camera and 12.2 MP back camera featuring Optical Image Stabilisation and autofocus.
The expected price falls around 30,000 – 35,000 INR.
While Google Pixel 3a has the codename Sargo, the bigger variant has the codename Bonito.
Pixel 3a XL will have Snapdragon 710 processor with 4GB RAM same as Pixel 3A. It will have a bigger display than the 3A with 6.0-inch display of resolution 1080 x 2160, an FHD+ display. The camera on this smartphone is no different from the Pixel 3A. It will possibly be packed with at least 64 GB. I expect the pricing of Pixel 3A XL to be around 40,000 INR.
These smartphones are the mid-rangers of the Pixel series with Pixel 3 being around 71,000 INR. With mid-range specs and prices, it may possibly be received well and may have popularity with many more audiences who can afford the mid-range Pixel phones.
With reports of Google admitting to pricing problems with Pixel phones the prices of these smartphones may change.
India being the fifth largest market for Pixel smartphones after US, Canada, UK and Germany, Google has agreed to work upon its pricing as one-plus is giving much more cut edge features in much less price and is proving to be a tough competitor. Having cheaper smartphones may be a good strategy for the time being.
