After a lackluster reception, it looks like Google is not done with phone versions. Just over a month after the release of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL in October, we heard two budget versions of the Pixel series. The devices will be known as Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL and, based on rumors, the first affordable pixels.
Such a publication would be highly unusual for Google because of recent history. First, it would be the only time Google launched four phones in a cycle, and secondly, Google has not released any budget device since the Nexus 5X. However, with the recent leakage wave, it seems that Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL (previously referred to as Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite) could succeed, and they are, to say the least, interesting.
Based on early rumors, Pixel 3a is a budget version of Pixel 3, and Pixel 3a XL is the budget version of Pixel 3 XL. They have similar display sizes and the same rear camera as the Pixel 3 lineup. Interestingly enough, many features are taken over from the more expensive Pixel 3 series, including the OLED screens. However, both devices will be made entirely of plastic and will remove some features, which can result in them being priced at hundreds lower than the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
They are called either Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL or Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite, though recent rumors point to the former.
It is assumed that the pixel 3a uses a 5.56 inch display. Unlike pixels 3 and 3 XL, an OLED panel is used. It has a resolution of 21
60 x 1080, which corresponds to a pixel density of 434 PPI. It adopts the same pixel 3 design language and has no display score. It has a symmetrical forehead and a chin that are the same size.
It is claimed that the Pixel 3a XL has the same resolution as the 3 Lite and uses the same OLED panel to save costs. However, since it is the budget version of the 3 XL, it has a larger screen (about six inches). Unlike the 3 XL, it has no display notch. Instead, a symmetrical forehead and a chin are used, which are similar to the 3 and 3 Lite.
To keep the price low, pixels 3a and 3a are displayed front cameras. Instead of two 8-megapixel front cameras, the Pixel 3a lineup has just one. It is a wide-angle camera, with which they can take more like his bigger brother more in the picture.

The Pixel 3a is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 System-on-a-Chip has many similarities with the newly released Snapdragon 710, the first SoC of the 700 series and the SoC of choice for the Pixel 3a XL. Both use the same Kryo 360 cores, the Image Signal Processor and the Digital Signal Processor.
The main differences are the lower clock rate of the Snapdragon 670 on its gold cores (2.0 GHz vs. 2.2 GHz) and the use of a slightly weaker Adreno 615 (instead of the Snapdragon 710's Adreno 616). While each SoC uses a different modem, the Snapdragon 670's X12 modem and the Snapdragon 710's X15 offer the same speeds with a theoretical maximum download speed of 600 Mbps (Cat 15) and a theoretical maximum upload speed of 150 Mbps (Cat. 13). Both chips use the 10 nm process, the same as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
At 6GB, it would have more RAM than the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL and help with one of the biggest problems with the first implementation of Pixel 3, memory management. In this case, the Pixel 3a XL would be the best value in the setup because the Snapdragon 710 is paired with 6GB of RAM. It is believed that 64 GB are intended for storage. There is no microSD slot card like Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
However, there are some conflicting reports. Another geekbench list only showed 4GB of RAM. At the moment, we're introducing the Pixel 3a XL with 6 GB, but this could only be a rumor.
RAM: 4 GB (Pixel 3a), 6 GB (Pixel 3a XL)
Storage: 64 GB
As for audio, there are some good and bad ones News. The good news, for the first time since the Pixel and Pixel XL, makes the headphone jack a return. This would be one of the few cases where an OEM brought back the port that industry is trying to destroy. The bad news is that two front speakers are gone. Instead, there is a single speaker along the forehead and cutouts for a second speaker at the bottom. This means that the stereo speakers remain only in the preferred position.
Stereo Speakers: Yes, Front and Bottom Firing
3.5mm Headphone Jack: Yes
The Pixel 3a has the same battery as the Pixel 3 at 2,915 mAh. With a much more energy efficient SoC, this should lead to a much better battery life. It's also rumored to support USB Power Delivery (like Pixel 3 and 3 XL) and Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+, a fast charging technology that combines the power of USB Power Delivery with Qualcomm Charge. However, it loses the wireless chargeability of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
Capacity: 2.915 mAh (Pixel 3a), Unknown (Pixel 3a XL)
Removable Battery: no
Fast Charging: Quick Charge 4 +, USB PD (18W)
Wireless charging: no
Gone is the glass for wireless charging. Instead, the entire body material is made of plastic. More than likely, this was done to keep prices as low as allegedly meant.
Colors: Clear white, only black and a third color
Software  Like all Pixel phones, the latest version of the standard Android operating system runs. There is no skin, although the same improvements as in Pixel 3 still exist. We expect that, as with all Pixel devices, at least three years of full OS upgrades will be obtained, including Android 10, 11, and 12.
The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL support Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.0. They should include NFC for Android Pay and are believed to support both Nano-SIM and eSIM.
Wi-Fi: 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac

Port: USB Type-C, USB 3.1 Gen 1
While the LTE speeds vary thanks to the two different SoCs, the supported tapes should be the same as the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, with support for GSM and Verizon (CDMA). We listed the tapes for the Pixel 3 and 3 XL below because we assume they are the same tapes supported by the Pixel 3a and 3a XL.
