The rumors about the Pixel 3 ‘Lite’ continue adding, and the last of them reveals precisely that the name will not be that, but that Google will use another name a bit convoluted: Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XLwill be the economic versions of their high-end phones.
These devices stand out according to those leaks for having designs without notch and, attention, with the minijack of headphones. No details about the design are offered in the data that has appeared, but it seems clear that there will be higher and lower frames. There is another important news: the camera will be identical to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL .
Same camera at a lower price? Put me two
That could be the winning argument of some devices that if they meet expectations could raise a very interesting bet from Google, which would cheapen access to what many consider the best mobile camera in the market.
Here however there is a special point, because the sources that have filtered this data to media like 9to5Google indicated that although the camera offers identical image quality, “the application of the camera has a worse performance”. It is logical to think that the speed of focus, shot or post-processing will be slower with a somewhat slower processor.
Some specifications of these devices have already been filtered, which will of course make concessions in the software section and which will have slightly different diagonals to those of their older brothers. So, we will have:
- Pixel 3a : 5.6-inch OLED screen (18: 9), Snapdragon 670, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB capacity, 3,000 mAh battery, mini-jack for headphones, 12-megapixel main camera (identical to Pixel’s) 3) and 8-pixel front.
- Pixel 3a XL : 6-inch OLED screen (18: 9) and some less data here, although everything points to a Snapdragon 710 with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of capacity, in addition to the aforementioned headset minijack. It is not entirely clear if the camera will offer changes with respect to the Pixel 3a.
Both devices will maintain options such as Active Edge edges or the Titan M security chip. It is expected that Google will present these devices soon, and we may not even have to wait for the Google I / O developer conference in May.
