It is well-known that Google is currently working on two mid-range Pixel devices known under the name of Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. According to a reliable source, the Pixel 3a will cost CAD 650 while the larger one, 3a XL, will retail for CAD 800.
The listing was obtained from a retailer backend database, and the source provided accurate information in the past. The two smartphones are listed under the codenames of Sargo and Bonito, and it seems that they will come with 64GB of built-in storage space. In comparison to the prices of the original models, the new line is quite affordable. However, they will have to compete with established brands like OnePlus, which offer lots of bells and whistles at the same price range.
While some doubted that the devices exist in the first place an earlier leak on the Google Store confirmed that they are real, with cases being listed under the accessories category. Clicking on either of the entries led to a 404 error, and they were quickly removed, but dedicated fans managed to snap some screenshots.
Possible specs for Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL
Another leak provided a few technical details about the pair. Data collected from the Google Play Console (which is used to observe and verify app downloads across different device models) suggests that the Pixel 3a will feature a generous 1080×2220 screen resolution with a pixel density of 440 while the XL version will sport a 1080×2160 panel with a lower 400 DPI.
The spec sheet includes 4GB of RAM, a Qualcomm processor ( most likely an older flagship SoC) NFC and the latest version of the popular Android operating system. The 12.2 single camera is rumored to make an appearance, a trait which should be a significant boon.
At one point a video was circulating the internet, showing what appeared to be a prototype of the Pixel 3a. The video was removed, and the YouTube channel which published the video seems to have disappeared into thin air (probably banished by a copyright takedown).
It is likely that more information will surface in the future.
