Google confirms new Pixel handset available on 8 May

Google confirms new Pixel handset available on 8 May

As for the specifications, the budget Pixel devices will have a 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage variant.

The real draw might be the price. Those prices are considerably cheaper than the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which normally start at $799 and $899, respectively. That could make it a better deal for anyone who wants the Pixel experience without paying for advanced processor and display technology that might go to waste. Together with some snapshots of the stereotypical white cardboard box, we also get some additional confirmation for a few specs, as well as potential United States price points - and they're a whole lot lower than previous estimates based on leaked European pricing. The smaller of the two 3a phones will also have a 3,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support, an always-on display, and the Now Playing music identification feature. Just last month, Google Fi tried to drum up business with another big price cut.

In recent generations the Google Pixel phones have gained a reputation for quality mobile photography. Probably just in time for the launch of its rumoured and much anticipated mid-range Pixel 3a series. The box shows the back of a White colour Pixel 3a model. The Pixel 3a is said to pack 3000 mAh battery, whereas the Pixel 3a XL is expected to house a larger 3700 mAh battery.

The Pixel 3a XL, on the other hand, is said to have a 6-inch full-HD+ (1080x2160 pixels) with an 18:9 aspect ratio and 402ppi pixel density. The primary feature of these devices is indeed the rear cameras since they retain the same excellent camera of flagship Pixel 3 devices.

As per tradition, 3 years of security updates and as many versions of Android will be guaranteed, while data security will be high thanks to the Titan M custom chip.

Google's hardware team took a blow this past year, as well, due in part to a broader slowdown of global smartphone sales, which has impacted all major players. They keep numerous Pixel 3's standout features, however, including Night Sight for low-light photos, Google Assistant's Call Screen for screening calls, unlimited Google Photos storage and the promise of three years of security and OS updates.
