A new leak has revealed the packaging for the Pixel 3a as well as some specs and price info on Google's upcoming phones. Just yesterday we got a sneak peek at the box and possible pricing, and today we're learning even more through some new promotional images. Of course, rumors are rumors, and they should always be taken with a grain of salt. Finally, the report also notes that Google will unveil the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL on May 7th, at Google's I/O 2019 event.

As for the price, the Pixel 3a will start at $399 (approximately Rs 28,000) and the regular Pixel 3a XL will start at $479 (approximately Rs 33,500). In addition to this, the two smartphones should be sold in three colors. The phone will be available white, black and purple color variants.

No price has been revealed yet but we should be learning about it at the Google I/O happening on the 7th of May. On the other hand, the Pixel 3a XL is expected to sport a 6-inch FHD+ screen with 1080x2160 pixel resolution.

In the company's most recent earnings call, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told investors that sales of the Pixel 3 smartphone were lower than those of the previous year's Pixel 2 - a measure of "year-on-year headwinds", he said.


Both of them will feature 12.2MP Dual Pixel cameras on the back, coupled up with fingerprint sensors and 8MP selfie shooters, alongside 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. Speaking of mobile photography, they're also coming with Motion Auto Focus and a portrait mode, providing unlimited storage on Google Photos as well. Nevertheless, multiple benchmark listings have shown this amount.

According to Max J., the Pixel 3a will feature a 5.6-inch gOLED Full HD+ display with 2220 x 1080 resolution, 441ppi and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Along the way it has helped nudge smartphones toward OLED and curved displays, to the removal of memory card slots, and to embrace NFC.

Droid Life got a hold of promo images of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL that confirm their features. There is a call screening feature that uses Google Assistant to let you know who is calling.
