Few days after the launch of Pixel 3 & 3 XL, rumors of Lite version of both the smartphones started to pop-up. Till last week we were calling them ‘Lite’, but after some codes found on Android Q 1st Beta, they are now known as Pixel 3a and 3a XL. As of now we already have an idea about the design and specs of both the smartphones. Now, this latest report clarifies those specs even more clearly. So let’s look into the specs.
Starting off with design, both smartphones are expected to look similar to regular Pixel 3, but with wider bezels. Instead of metal or glass, these devices are expected to have polycarbonate plastic back. But as it’s from Google so we can expect good quality here. As of now we don’t know whether the Pixel 3a XL will have a notch or not. Moving to the specs, the Pixel 3a and 3a XL are expected to sport 5.6-inch and 6-inch OLED display respectively, with resolution of 2220 x 1080 on both. The 3a is expected to come with Snapdragon 670 processor whereas 3a XL is expected to have Snapdragon 710 processor. Both smartphones will have 4GB RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. Maybe there will be other storage options as well.
Talking about the camera, report suggests that both Pixel 3a and 3a XL might have the same 12MP sensor at the back as regular Pixel 3. But the camera app is not optimized that well, maybe that’s because the phones are still in testing phase and the app is not ready yet. At the front we can expect 8MP sensor with wide-angle lens. The devices are highly expected to have stock Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. The Pixel 3a is expected to have 3000mAh battery with 18W fast charging. No battery information for 3a XL is available as of now. Both will have Type-C port and 3.5mm jack will make return from the 1st Gen Pixel devices.
So that’s all the information we have as of now. Both devices are expected to get unveiled during Google I/O 2019 in May. Now what are your thoughts on these specs? Let us know in the comment section below. Also stay tuned with us for more information.
