The Google Pixel 3a Is Available In Australia Now

Google Launches Pixel 3a Phone for $399

As far as the Indian market is concerned, the Pixel 3a phone is priced at Rs 39,999 whereas the bigger Pixel 3a XL will cost Rs 44,999. As a result, you won't be able take wide-angle selfies like you can on the standard Pixel models. Google is also promising 3 years of OS and security updates for both phones. Starting at US$399, the Pixel 3a could help the company reverse flagging sales of more premium phones. Both models feel like smartphones from two or three years ago, when the devices still sported thicker bezels and no notch. The Pixel 3A trades the glass-heavy finish of the flagship Pixel 3 for a mostly plastic design, which in turn means there's no wireless charging.

When it comes to the processor, Pixel 3a carries Snapdragon 670 which is a year old processor, and that is how Google managed to keep the price below $500.

More frequent security updates is one of nearly fifty new features and changes in Android focused on security and privacy.

The company also showed off two new pieces of hardware: A Google Nest Hub Max and a $399 Google Pixel 3a smartphone that keeps the insane good camera but ditches other features like waterproofing and wireless charging. The more immersive discovery experience will bring additional information as you scroll through different apps you may want to install.

One trade-off is the plastic case on both phones; the high-end Pixel 3 and 3 XL have an aluminum shell. I took some preliminary shots to compare against the Pixel 3 and there are times when I can't tell the difference.

Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL Launched - Highlight Features and Price
Google's original design team did have some input, as is to be expected, but "the lion's share of the work" took place in Taiwan . It is worth noting the Pixel 3a also comes in a larger model, the Pixel 3a XL , that offers a 6-inch OLED panel for Android fans.

The cheaper Pixel devices have been in the works for months and the launch wasn't timed to coincide with Porat's comments, according to Google.

Prior to the launch of the Pixel 3a, a series of leaks already provided us a sneak peek of the specs sheet and leaked rendered images gave away the physical appearance of the smartphone.

Why Pixel 3a and 3a XL?

As certified "made for Google" accessories they are also the guaranteed to perfectly fit and complement your new Pixel smartphone, you can even choose to have a "G" logo cutout on your skin.

Because the initial buzz around these phones has been nearly universally positive-and because these are the first Pixels to be sold through carriers besides Verizon-we've put together a quick roundup the various deals retailers and carriers are offering alongside the Pixel 3A on launch week.
