Google Pixel 3a appears in high-quality image leak


Google may be planning to announce the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL on May 7th, but before it does, the rumor mill is giving us a good look at one of the devices.

A new image has leaked today that offers a clear look at the Google Pixel 3a. Shared by Evan Blass, we can see bezels above and below the display and a single front-facing camera rather than the dual front camera setup found on the regular Pixel 3. The back of the phone looks similar to the Pixel 3, offering a single rear camera, a fingerprint reader, and Google branding.

Rumors specs for the Pixel 3a include a 5.6-inch 2220×1080 screen, 8MP front and 12MP rear cameras, and 64GB of built-in storage. We’re also told to expect a Snapdragon 670 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 3000mAh battery. Google is said to be including the Active Edge squeezable sides and Titan M security chip that it put in the Pixel 3, and it’s also rumored that the Pixel 3a will have a 3.5mm headphone jack, something that the Pixel 3 lacks.

A recent report claimed that T-Mobile will sell the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL as well as the standard Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. That’s notable because so far, Verizon has been the only U.S. carrier to sell Google’s Pixel phones. Because many people still buy their phones from their carrier, a T-Mobile launch would make Google’s Pixel phones an option for lots of folks who would prefer to get their new device on EIP.

Now that we’re getting a good look at the Pixel 3a, what do you think of it? Are you considering buying one if it comes to T-Mobile?

    Google has learned from the path that 1+ took, sell it in a brick and mortar store to extend the reach to its customers, along with the benefit of an EIP option… lets hope this phone is priced at below $500.

      Above $400 makes OnePlus better buy. Below that makes it somewhat competitive with Moto G7, what woulda been Stylo 5. The latter @ $250-300 a much better buy still.
      Pixel 3a kinda stuck in no man’s land if not priced super cheap.
      Phones in general need a good, upgraded $250-350 category without obvious deficiencies. As a base minimum the Moto G7+ specs.

    I just got rid of my pixel 3 so no. the microphone would cut out at random during conversations and google insisted there is not a problem. it wasn’t a problem if I was talking to my brother because he would hang up immediately and call back and it would magically start working but when you wait on hold for twenty minutes for service and the mic stops working that was a problem. there was a lot to like about the pixel 3 but google’s customer disservice was not one of them.

    Does it have ultra wide angle lens?
