Google to launch Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL this year

This year, Google is expected to release a mid-range phone to accompany last year's flagship Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices. These new phones will be called the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, however, other than the name, and that the Pixel 3a XL will have a bigger display (6" compared to the 5.6" on the Pixel 3a), we don't really have too many details about differences between them. 

We do know some things about the smaller Pixel 3a though. It will have a 5.6" OLED screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio and 1080 x 2220 pixel resolution. When compared to the Pixel 3's 18:9 display, it seems that the Pixel 3a will have a notch. We can't see it on the CAD renders though, but we believe it will be there.


On the back, the Pixel 3a will have a single 12MP camera which will supposedly be as good as the one in the Pixel 3. On the front, there will be a wide-angle 8MP camera sensor for selfies and video calls. The chipset that will power the Pixel 3a will be the Snapdragon 670, and it will be paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. We still don't know whether the Pixel 3a XL will be powered by the Snapdragon 710 chipset as rumored. It will be fed with power by a 3.000 mAh battery, with 18W fast charging support.


The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will both be unveiled this year, however, we don't have information about the exact date of this release. In the US it will most likely come with Verizon.
