Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL Full Specifications, Prices and Offers

The long-awaited budget smartphones from Google was unveiled yesterday – the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. They can be classified as the successors to the affordable Nexus series, which were the exiting Google phones before Pixels took over. With a more affordable price tag and decent rear cameras, the new Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL for sure will be bought by many phone users.

Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL Features at a Glance

The smaller Google Pixel 3a spots a notch-less 5.6 inch OLED panel with FHD+ (1080 x 2220 pixel) resolution, which has a Dragon Trail protection on top. The new Pixel phone is powered by the Snapdragon 670 chipset with Adreno 615 GPU. The interesting part is that the phone has the same amount of memory as its more expensive sibling. Their memory configuration is 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Both phones cannot be expanded via a microSD card, as usual in the case with the Android purebreds.

The camera setup of the Pixel 3a XL is 12.2MP Sony MX363 main sensor on the back with f/1.8 aperture, 1.4µm pixels and optical image stabilization. In theory, the phone should be able to match the more expensive Pixel’s camera performance. The front camera is also the same – 8MP unit with f/2.0 aperture.

All the high-end camera features are available here as well – Night Sight, Top Shot, Super Res Zoom and HDR+.

The battery of the new Pixel phones is rated at 3000mAh, and they support 18W fast charging over the USB Power Delivery Standard.

The Google Pixel 3a XL has the same hardware but in a slightly bigger package. Once again, it has an OLED with FHD+ (1080 x 2160 pixel) resolution but it reaches 6.0 inches. It does not have a notch like the Google Pixel 3 XL, but it has a notably thicker bezel. It has a bigger battery too – a 3700mAh capacity battery.

To make the price lower, Google used plastic to build these new Pixel phones so there is no fancy frosted glass or metal this time around. And like I stated earlier, the frint glass is not Gorilla Glass but Dragon Trail instead.

The two phones will be available in three colours – Clearly White, Just Black, and Purple-ish, with the three featuring colour accent power buttons. They differ from the original Pixels, so you can easily distinguish them.

Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL Price and Availability

The Google Pixel 3a price is $399, while that of Pixel 3a XL is $479. Both phones are already available in all countries where Google sells its phones, except India. The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will arrive India on May 15th 2019.

In the United States of America, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Spectrum Mobile (Charter), C Spire and Google Fi will be offering the two phones.
