Google Set to Launch Pixel 3a, 3a XL

Until that happens, Android fans have the chance to buy Google's most recent phones, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL for much less than the usual retail price.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL were leaked extensively before their official unveil, and the Pixel 3 Lite is continuing in much the same way.

What's particularly interesting is the fact that the phone features a headphone jack at the top.

There have been previous rumors about the new Pixels, with an alleged launch date in the spring, but now we're also getting details on some of the phones' specifications.

Google may be working on cheaper versions of its Pixel 3 phones, the Google Pixel 3a and the Google Pixel 3a XL, 9to5Google reported Monday, citing a source familiar with the phones. They will sport Active Edge squeezable sides, the Titan M security chip, and eSIM.

More details are available regarding the smaller device. The budget devices will reportedly either be fueled by the Snapdragon 670 or Snapdragon 710 SoC and accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Additionally, both devices will support fast charging via a USB-C port.

The first beta of Android Q has confirmed the existence of these two devices and now we have to do nothing but wait for them to be officially launched. No word yet on how, or if, the larger phone's specs differ beyond the screen size. While the Pixel 3 XL has a huge 6.4-inch screen, we're only expecting a 5.56-inch panel on the Lite model. If the deal suits your needs, you'll be happy to know that Google Fi now sells the Pixel 3 for just $600, while the Pixel 3 XL costs just $700, down from $900.
