New leak gives us our best look at the Google Pixel 3a

New leak gives us our best look at the Google Pixel 3a
The Google Pixel 3a will be officially unveiled in just a couple of weeks on May 7th at Google I/O, but you don't need to wait until then to get an up-close look at what could be the most impressive affordable camera phone.

Thanks to one of the most prolific leakers out there, Mr. Evan Blass, we get a high-resolution render of the Pixel 3a (the photo below), and it basically corroborates all the earlier leaks about the phone.

The Pixel 3a pictured here features big bezels like it's 2017, but it's what on the inside that counts and on the inside you have this phone running on a clean version of Android that is likely to perform better than most rivals and unlike most other Android phones, this one is also expected to get regularly updated for quite a few years, so it will stay relevant in the long-term. At least, those are the expectations.

And what about the specs on the Google Pixel 3a?

Here is a short summary of everything that we know so far from rumors:

  • Processor: Snapdragon 670
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64GB, no microSD
  • Battery: 3,000mAh
  • Charging: 18-watt fast charge

The big highlight of these phones, apart from clean Android, will surely be the camera. So far, rumors agree that the Pixel 3a series will have the same camera as on the flagship Pixels, which would be might impressive. Let us remind you that the Pixel 3 camera is one of the best of any phone out there as it performs great both during the day and at night.

Google Pixel 3a: Price and Release Date

The new mid-range Pixel phone is expected to arrive in two varieties: the small Pixel 3a and the bigger Pixel 3a XL. Both phones will be officially revealed over at Google I/O 2019 on May 7th.

And when it comes to prices, here are expectations based on rumors:

  • Pixel 3a 64GB: $400 / 450 euro
  • Pixel 3a XL 64GB: $500 / 550 euro

Interestingly, while the original flagship Pixel series were only available on Verizon Wireless in the United States, this time around, rumors suggest that both Verizon and T-Mobile will carry the new phones.

At these prices, the Pixel 3a series will beat the OnePlus family and will provide a solid alternative for those who don't want to spend a fortune on a flagship.
