Google online store shows cheaper Pixel 3a phone

Recent reports have revealed that Google is gearing up to launch two mid-range Pixel phones called the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. Moreover, the Pixel 3a was briefly listed on the official online store.

Over the weekend, some eagle-eyed users spotted the name in the "Phones" drop-down menu at the top of the store page. Other rumoured features of the Pixel 3a and 3a XL include eSIM support, a 3.5mm audio jack, Titan M security chip and Active Edge squeezable frame for accessing Google Assistant.

Accidental leaks and Google pretty much go hand-in-hand. The Google "bonito" aka Pixel 3a XL, is listed with 4GB of RAM and Android 9 Pie as well, but with a larger display, a 6-inch (approximately) panel with fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) resolution. That would fit with rumours of a spring launch for the two phones.

With the Pixel 3a, Google reportedly releases a mid-range version of the Pixel 3. Both phones were rumored to arrive in early Spring, and if that info is accurate, both phones will arrive really soon.

Just as the weekend was kicking off, someone updated the Google Store to prematurely reveal new product launches for Google. The Pixel 3a would have a 2,915 mAh battery whereas the 3a XL would house a 3,430 mAh battery. It is expected these phones could be revealed at the Google I/O conference in May.

The Pixel 3a (codenamed Sargo) will obviously be smaller, sporting a 5.6-inch Full-HD+ screen with a 2220×1080 pixels resolution and pixel density of 440ppi. As for the Pixel 3a XL, the leaks stated that the phone could pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor.

Were Google to put the same unbelievable camera in the Pixel 3a but drive the price down by using a lesser screen, more plastic, and cheaper, less powerful internals it'd be great for customers who want a great camera in their pocket but can't afford the normal Pixel. In addition, they have 4 GB of memory and a 12 megapixel camera.

Google is known for announcing its Pixel series of smartphones in October.
