Google announced the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL today at Google I/O, just as we all expected them to. The phones, which have leaked on countless occasions at this point dating back to last year, are the mid-range phones Google hopes to sell in bunches, thanks to decent price points and wide availability.
The Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL have 5.6″ and 6″ FHD (1080p) displays, Snapdragon 670 processors, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and 12.2MP cameras. Battery capacities are 3000mAh for the 3a and 3700mAh for the 3a XL, while both have USB-C ports, 3.5mm headphone jacks, fingerprint readers, stereo sound, and Active Edge squeezy sides.
The big sell here is going to be the camera experience that potentially equals the regular Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, only at a fraction of the price. You’ll also get Google’s cleaner software experience and the regular software updates, but the camera is most definitely the reason you should consider this.
Speaking of pricing, the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL start at $399 and $479, respectively. They are available for purchase today at Google, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Visible, and Google Fi in Clearly White, Purple-ish, and Just Black.
