Pixel 3a to make Google a serious mid-range player; here's why

The leak was spotted on /Leaks where a poster of the Google Pixel 3a XL with 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage was displayed with the Indian pricing.

The same leak also reiterates some key specifications of the XL model.

From a form factor perspective, the Pixel 3a and 3 XL more closely resemble the 2017-era Pixel 2 handsets than they do the other Pixel 3 family members, with their large bezels and non-glass bodies.

Undoubtedly, the announcement that received the most applause was a surprisingly minor one: an update coming to Google Home devices will finally let users stop alarms and timers by simply saying "Stop", rather than depending on Google's wake phrase to get a gadget's attention.

Other leaks have suggested that the Pixel 3a will pack a 5.6-inch display while the Pixel 3a XL will have a 6-inch screen as opposed to 6.3-inch on the Pixel 3 XL.

There's no IP68 rating for water and dust resistance to be found either, and Google has traded the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 for a mid-range Snapdragon 670.

In addition, the image also confirms the cameras on the Pixel 3a XL, which is said to be the same as we have seen on the Pixel 3 devices, which released previous year.

After months of leaks, Google has made the Pixel 3a and 3a XL official.

Android Q's main lines will be presented, naturally, and lucky owners of a smartphone from the Pixel range are already able to preview some of the upcoming mobile OS update's beta versions.

Additionally, the smartphone will be accompanied by Google's Active Edge feature, which enables Google Assistant by squeezing the bottom edges of the smartphone, along with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The first new product revealed under the Nest brand is the Nest Hub Max, a 10-inch, camera-equipped version of Google's smaller 7-inch Home Hub (now called the Nest Hub). In a new development, we have some news about one of the most critical aspect of any Pixel phone out there - the rear camera. There will also be support for portrait mode photos, Motion Auto Focus, and unlimited Google Photos storage. It will have the Always-on Display and Always-listening features. Both phones will be available in Just Black, Clearly White, and Purple-ish color options. It's available from the Google Store as well as through Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular and Google Fi and is shipping from today. Lastly, Google may introduce new advancements to the Google Assistant in order to take on the rivals- Amazon Alexa and Apple Siri.

The Pixel 3a XL specs were not included in this latest leak although all current indications seem to point to the two phones being identical, besides in obvious areas such as the display size and the battery capacity.
