Google will make more mid-range Pixel smartphones like the Pixel 3a

Google Launches Pixel 3a Phone for $399

Google Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL will be available with T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon, and is available for purchase right now.

"We want to help you take advantage of the latest new technology-5G, foldables, edge-to-edge screens, on-device AI, and more-while making sure users' security, privacy, and well being are always a top priority", Google stated in a blog post. For comparison, the Pixel 3 also ships with 64GB, but consumers who are willing to pay more can get the device with up to 128Gb of storage.

Google is offering trade-in deals for Android devices from Samsung, LG, Motorola, Huawei as well as earlier Pixels, though with the exception of the Galaxy S9 and Pixel 2 lines, those values aren't near those offered for older iPhones.

The Pixel 3 has a "soft touch glass back" while the Pixel 3a has a polycarbonate body - the difference is small. With the use of AR, the search giant noted that Google Maps could more accurately direct people to the correct street or road so that users can reach their destinations faster. The Android maker's latest smartphones, the Pixel 3A and 3A XL, start at $399 but appear to pack numerous things that make Pixel phones what they are in the first place. The Acer Chromebook reward is limited to contract and upgrades on Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL orders until June 4. The rest of the camera was included though which is a massive accomplishment by the Taiwan Googlers - the Snapdragon 845 has a different ISP on the chipset than the Snapdragon 670. Both device generations also have the squeeze-phone feature called Active Edge.

Google officially unveils its brand new Pixel 3a lineup
What do y'all think about the Pixel 3a lineup? "This was the first one that they led from a hardware and software perspective". Whether or not Google's inclusion of the camera ruins what many loved about the bedroom-friendly Nest Hub is yet to be seen.

It has an excellent rear camera similar to the one found on the Pixel 3, strong battery life and an OLED display. However, everything boils down to what Pixel 3 offers for its price vs Pixel 3a. Google sticks with the same two tone finish (like the Pixel 3) and it works equally well in plastic. Somehow Google managed to find room in the Pixel 3a for the audio jack, despite the phone having nearly identical height, width, and thickness as with the Pixel 3.

This is great news for the Amazon ecosystem, as well as phones released in places like China where the Play Store isn't a guarantee.

Once this begins rolling out, we'll let you know. (We're yet to see the camera of the upcoming OnePlus 7 series).
