Google Pixel 3a full features leaked ahead of official launch

Unlike previous Pixel launches, however, it is expected the Pixel 3a series will be more varied in carrier availability this time around.

Two factors distinguish the Pixel 3a and 3a XL-screen size and battery. It is also speculated that the company may announce the Android Q operating system in addition to the upgrades to Google Assistant, Google Maps, Android TV and more.

To achieve this price point, Google has dropped a few of the features you'll find on the pricier Pixel 3 XL.

Google's baked-in AI, including squeezable sides that trigger Google Assistant and on-device music recognition, are also present in the Pixel 3a series.

But enough about what is missing from the Pixel 3a XL, what do you get in this £469 Google-branded handset?

Moreover, the smaller Pixel 3a version is expected to be much cheaper than the bigger Pixel 3a XL considering that it could be powered by a Snapdragon 670 SoC.

After months of leaks, Google has made the Pixel 3a and 3a XL official. Here we also see the phones body will be built from polycarbonate, which keeps the cost of the phone down. As for the features, the Pixel 3a will support Night Vision mode, portrait mode, Google Wizard, Moving Autofocus, and Quick Switch adapter among others. The design looks similar to the Pixel 3 with its dual-tone design and it still retains a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Camera wise, Google notes that the Pixel 3a's software can do what other companies (read: Apple) need advanced hardware to do. In its place, we have the same curved borders at the top and bottom of the screen present on the Pixel 3, and Pixel 3a.

The Pixel 3a comes with a 5.6-inch display with a screen resolution of 1,080 × 2,220 pixels.

This time, though, it's the 3a that's been the subject of a full-scale info dump. Google is also promising 3 years of OS and security updates for both phones. In fall, Pixel phones will also get access to a range of new privacy and digital wellbeing features.

At the moment, Google Pixel smartphones are not officially sold in Malaysia but you could buy it at a premium through grey importers. So you can happily snap away on your shiny new Pixel camera without worrying about having to cough-up for more cloud storage, or delete treasured memories.

Google cut its fan-favourite Nexus line of smartphones and exited the mid-range market with the launch of its first Pixel smartphones in 2016, which cost at least £599 and were created to take on Apple's dominant iPhone. It will have the Always-on Display and Always-listening features.

The search giant's ubiquitous Google Assistant got a major upgrade at I/O 2019 that could alter how people interact with or speak to their phones. It's available from the Google Store as well as through Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular and Google Fi and is shipping from today.
