Word on the street has it that Google could be prepping a more affordable variant of the Pixel 3 smartphone. The handset in question is rumored to be called the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, and last we heard, it could be announced on the 7th of May, a day before Google I/O 2019 is expected to kick off.
Now thanks to the folks at Android Headlines, it appears that they have managed to get their hands on what appears to be the alleged official renders of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, pictured above to the left and right respectively. From a glance it doesn’t appear that the phones are too different from each other, but based on the rumors, we know that the Pixel 3a XL will be bigger, although based on the renders, marginally so.
What’s interesting about these renders is that if they are real, they mention the 7th of May date on them, giving some credence to the previous rumors. Apart from that, the phones appear to be pretty standard in terms of design. Unlike the Pixel 3 XL, the Pixel 3a XL will not sport a notch and both phones appear to be packing some pretty big bezels.
In any case, take it with a grain of salt for now and hopefully, we’ll have more details to share in the coming weeks.
