As we wait for Google to announce the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, more details on the oft-leaked lower-cost Pixel phones.
The Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will be available in an "iris" color in addition to black and white color options, according to a WinFuture report. Iris is a sort of blue-violet color, and it's one that we haven't seen yet on a Pixel phone from Google. The folks at 9to5Google added support to this rumor today, as they've also heard that Google will offer at least one of its lower-cost Pixel phones in a "purple" color.
Today's report also backs up the rumors that Google's lower-cost Pixel phone will be called "Pixel 3a" and "Pixel 3a XL" and provides our first info on pricing for the devices. It's said that the 64GB Pixel 3a could cost around €450 EUR ($507 USD), with the Pixel 3a XL being priced a bit higher. For reference, the standard 64GB Pixel 3 starts at €849 EUR. It's worth noting that that price doesn't translate directly to USD, though, as €849 EUR is $956 USD while Google charges $799 for the 64GB Pixel 3 in the U.S.
A previous rumor said that the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL could launch at Verizon in the spring. We officially entered the spring season last week, so an announcement could come any time now. Now that more details on color and pricing for the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are coming out, are you interested in these lower-cost Pixel phones?
