Google's affordable Pixel 3a lineup has already leaked numerous times but as we are getting closer to the launch event, the leaked content is only getting higher. Three different leaks have surfaced again revealing Pixel 3a features, color variants, and pricing along with Bluetooth certification.
The first leak of the day is coming from a YouTube channel This is Tech Today. The channel host claims to have received Pixel 3a retail packaging shots from his sources along with pricing details. The packaging images corroborate specifications as mentioned in previous leaks. The Pixel 3a is shown to be featuring a 5.6-inch Full HD display and 64GB internal storage which should be the base model. There is plastic build, headphone jack, and charging port with fast charging support.
The most interesting part of the leak is Pixel 3a pricing information. As per the channel, the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will cost $399 and $479 respectively. These prices are for the base model but definitely make the two phones worth the consideration. If these turn out to be the actual pricing and whatever we have heard about specs and features, Google might be able to attract a good number of buyers which it failed to do with Pixel 3 flagships.
As for the second leak, it has been shared by Droid-Life folks which reveal all the details one would be interested in knowing about Pixel 3a lineup. The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are reported to sport a 5.6-inch and 6.0-inch display along with 3,000mAh and 3,700mAh battery respectively. Both the phones will offer a 12.2-megapixel Dual Pixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB internal storage. There will be Active Edge pressure-sensitive side-frames, rear-mounted fingerprint scanners, fast charging, and Android 9 Pie out of the box.
In terms of software features, Google will pack the camera app with Night Sight mode, Motion Auto Focus, and portrait mode. All buyers will receive unlimited Google Photos storage as it has become the tradition for Pixel smartphones. Google is assuring OS updates and security support for a period of three years. These phones will also support Screen Call functionality.
Google will release the Pixel 3a lineup in White, Black, and Purple color variants. There are also different colored power buttons which are another Pixel signature thing.
Lastly, Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL have received their mandatory Bluetooth SIG certification. The listing shows both phones will be compatible with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. It further corroborates that the two phones will be running Android 9 Pie right from the first boot.
