Pixel 3a: This is the cheap Google phone

ByLinky Johnson 2019-04-25 684

Only a few weeks separate us from Google Pixel 3a (XL). Now a first official render picture has appeared, showing the stripped-down Pixel 3 in full splendor. A borderless piece of jewelry will not be - but it does not have to.


Google Pixel 3a on first picture to see

On May 7, 2019, Google will appear for the first time to introduce a weakened version of its pixel smartphones. As part of the Google I / O developer conference, the Pixel 3a and the larger version Pixel 3a XL will be shown to the public for the first time. Now, the well-known Leaker Evan Blass has published a picture on Twitter, which is supposed to be a render of the Pixel 3a. Even if the smartphone was already seen on pictures, it is worth taking a look at the official render yet.


As far as design is concerned, Google did not dare to make big leaps. The pixel 3a looks almost the same as the pixel 3, with a few minor differences. The margins are quite prominent, which causes a lot of ridicule on Twitter. There it is puzzled whether the design team of the group continues to be on vacation or whether Google has made a journey back in time to the year 2016.


An important difference to Pixel 3 concerns the front camera. As can be seen from the image, Google sets pixel 3a on a single lens instead of a double front camera. On the other hand, there is no difference to the pixel 3 on the back.

Google Pixel 3a (XL): We can expect that

Google will introduce the weakened version of the Pixel 3 in two variants. In addition to the pixel 3a, there will be a larger version, the display will come on a diagonal of probably 6.0 inches instead of 5.6 inches. Both models seem to rely on an OLED screen and the Snapdragon 670 or Snapdragon 710 as a processor. According to first reports, 4 GB of RAM and an internal capacity of 64 GB are added. Android 9 Pie is preinstalled and the battery smoothly delivers 3,000 mAh. Supposedly, a classic headphone jack in the 3.5 mm format to be of the party.


What Google intends to do with the cameras, has not come to the public so far. The Pixel series has always been known for good photo skills. How this can be implemented with a cheap pixel phone, is still open. The main camera is designed to allow images with up to 12 MP, while selfies are to be up to 8 MP in it.


The prices for the standard version are currently expected to be about 450 euros, while the Pixel 3a XL for about 550 euros to come into the shops. If this information should be true in two weeks, then the difference to the pixel 3 is around 150 euros, the pixel 3 XL at about 110 euros. Amazon currently offers the Pixel 3 for just over 600 euros , while the Pixel 3 XL costs around 660 euros .
