This series comprises of two phones namely the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.
Specifications and Features
Speaking of Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, the specifications they share in common are the use of the SnapDragon 670 SoC, 4GB of Ram, 64 GB storage and the camera technology which was used on the Pixel 3 Series. Meaning, the rear 12MP sensor is the same one as found on the Pixel 3 series. This sensor is known for taking the great pictures. Adding to that Google’s Night sight is one of the latest in tech, which makes low light pictures look much better as seen on Pixel 3 series.
The front camera comprises of an 8MP sensor. The Pixel 3a features a 5.6-inch FHD+ display and the Pixel 3a Xl sports a 6-inch FHD+ display. The displays are notch free and are GOLED Panels. We don’t know much about how the GOLED is different from AMOLED or OLED but, it’s definitely shaper and the colors are more elegant.
Speaking of Pixel devices, Google’s decided to include their latest security technology the Titan M2 Chip for enterprise-grade security.
The body is made up of Polycarbonate and the design is way too similar to the Pixel 3 series. Moving on the sensors, the device has all the usual sensors including the same fingerprint sensor and speaking of the battery, it comes equipped with the 3700mAh battery. The battery size is the same as the Pixel 3 series’ and we have to rely on actual tests to confirm how it performs. The devices come with USB type-C 3.1 and rely on 18W fast charging to charge the battery.
The devices will be priced at 40,000/- and 45,000/- for the 3a and 3aXL versions respectively in India.

Two reports surfaced since this morning. One, that T-mobile might start carrying Pixel 3a and 3a XL. Second, that Google posted an announcement teaser on the Google Store website.
The Google Store combined this morning’s Marvel Playmoji announcement with the news of something happening on May 8. All of the hints that Google has given us is, “On 8 May, something big is coming to the Pixel universe.”
Another tidbit I shared on last week’s @abcscoop: Confidence score of ~7/10 on this but I’ve seen evidence Pixel 3a will hit Google Store in May 7th.

Further evidence that indicated this announcement might refer to the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL came from 9to5Google’s Stephen Hall. He, in his tweet, mentioned he had evidence that claimed these phones would hit the online market on May 7. He tweeted this just hours before Google’s teaser page went live!
However, it seems that there has been a change in the date and has been postponed to May 8.
Over the past several weeks, there has been a slew of Pixel 3a and 3a XL rumors. The names of these smartphones were officially confirmed by a Google Store leak!
The ‘G’ logo on the website is a Thanos purple and seems very similar to the upcoming Marvel movie.
Speaking of purple, there were reports that said Pixel 3a lineup will feature a “purple” color. The borders may be “iris” color. The color theming on today’s teaser could very much be tied to this promo.
We are expecting that the device may feature a 5.6-inch display for the Pixel 3a with Snapdragon 670 and 4GB of RAM. The expected camera features may be a 12-megapixel rear camera, and a 3,000mAh battery.
The Google Pixel 3A Xl Specs are similar, but with a 6-inch screen.
