Interested in Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL now that rumors say they’ll be coming to T-Mobile? There’s more info today on both models ahead of their expected reveal next week.

A new leak has revealed the packaging for the Pixel 3a as well as some specs and price info on Google’s upcoming phones. Brandon Lee of This is Tech Today has posted a video with all the info, showing off the box for a “Purple-ish” version of the Pixel 3a that’s likely the model we saw in a leaked render last week.

The Pixel 3a is packing a 5.6-inch 1080p display, according to today’s leak, along with 64/128GB of storage and a plastic build rather than the glass body of the Pixel 3. Google is also packing a 3.5mm headphone jack and downward-firing speakers into the Pixel 3a, says today’s leak.

When it comes to pricing, the Pixel 3a will reportedly start at $399 while the Pixel 3a XL will start at $479. Those prices are considerably cheaper than the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which normally start at $799 and $899, respectively.

With the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, Google is expected to offer more affordable mid-range versions of their Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL flagships. The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL may not be the quite as high-end as the regular Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but they could be interesting options for a lot of people, including those who are frustrated at the prices of current flagships compared to Nexus phones from years ago.

Google is reportedly going to reveal the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL on May 7th. Both phones, as well as the regular Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, are rumored to be coming to T-Mobile.

    Pixel 3a XL at $479, or OnePlus 7 Plus will be my next device as long as they both come with full support on T-Mobile.
    My LG V20 is getting long in the tooth.

      Yeah my V20 is great in all but I’m on the sidelines till after the summer and seeing what is gonna be discounted first and by how much.

      • steveb944

        I’m hoping for trade in deals.

      • Bklynman

        Is the V20 still getting updates from LG? Thinking about buying one for back up,there a store on ebay who sells them for $150.00 brand new.

      The Pixel 3a stats wont be anywhere near that of even the OnePlus 6 or 6T, let alone the 7. at $399-$499, there is no reason to not include atleast a SnapDragon 845 processor and 8GB RAM. If it is anything less then that, go for a OnePlus 6.

        Bingo. Pixels are touted as fairly-priced compared to others, but they give substantially less. Camera and cloud storage do not compensate for everything else.

      • steveb944

        Software is the only reason. Other than that a regular OnePlus 7 will suffice.
        I’m leaning towards the 7 Plus due to the pop up camera.

        • Maj. Dixon Butts

          That pop up camera is going to be a weak point. Either way, the 7 pro will most likely be my next choice as well. I’m hoping OnePlus adds some of the same wizardry to their camers software that Google does. That main camera is going to be sweet.

          I can count the number of times I’ve taken a selfie, so I’ll be fine. I’ve hated ever since they added front cameras to phones; privacy concerns, no social media necessity, rear cameras have always been better for group shots (smile, cheese, etc features).

      You should have bought the Pixel 3 XL 128gb for $499 during the one day Google birthday sale then like I did. Sure, you have to put one month of Fi on it for $20 but Whoop Dee doo. Best deal ever on the Pixel.

        Dang I missed out.
