New renders show off all three color options of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL: white, purple, and black. Shared by Droid-Life, the images show that the white and purple phones will have a differently-colored power button — orange for the white phone, yellow for the purple phone — while the black Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will have a matching black power button.
Today's leak goes on to confirm some of the specs and features of the upcoming phones. The Pixel 3a will have a 5.6-inch screen and 3000mAh battery, says the report, while the Pixel 3a XL will pack a 6-inch display and 3700mAh battery. Both phones are expected to have a 12.2MP Dual Pixel rear camera, 8MP front camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a rear fingerprint reader, and Active Edge shortcut. Android 9.0 Pie will come preloaded on both models.
Some features found on the standard Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will make their way to the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. Leaked marketing materials confirm that the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will get Night Sight for taking better photos in low-light, the Titan M security chip, and Call Screen for avoiding robocalls and scammers. Both phones will also receive three years of security and OS updates.
Google is expected to introduce the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL on May 7th. Rumors say that the Pixel 3a will start at $399 while the Pixel 3a XL will start at $479. That's considerably cheaper than the standard Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL starting prices. And because the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will get many of the same features as their flagship siblings, they could be great options for consumers who want a great phone but don't want to shell out nearly $1,000 for it.
