Published

on

Google has finally unveiled its long awaited budget friendly offering – the Google Pixel 3a in Google I/O 2019 held at California today. The device is a complete package offering the best from both the price segments.

Starting off, the Pixel 3a flaunts a compact 5.6 inch OLED display with 2220 x 1080 pixel resolution. It is protected by Dragontrail glass instead of Corning’s Gorilla Glass. It follows a uni-body design made of poly-carbonate material instead of glass.

The chipset used on the Pixel 3a is the Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 670 which is a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor made in 10 nm process. For GPU needs, it packs Adreno 615. This processor will not be able to deliver as much performance as we have seen on the Pixel devices but a decent day-to-day performance is guaranteed.

Coming to the area where the device really shines, the cameras. It has a 12.2 MP rear camera with support for both optical and electronic image stabilization. To put on perspective, this is the same lens that the tech-giant has used for its flagship device Pixel 3. The lens is of f/1.8 aperture. On the front, it packs an 8 MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture with 84 degree field of view. The camera supports features like Night Sight, AR cartoons, Top Shot, and Time lapse.

The handset will be available in three color variants namely Just Black, Clearly White, and Purple-ish. It packs a 3000 mAh battery which the brand claims to last 30 hours on a single charge. It comes with support for 18W fast charging which can provide up to 7 hours of battery backup with just 15 minutes of charging.

There will be 4 GB of RAM in the device which will be coupled with 64 GB of internal storage.

As far as the Pixel 3a XL is concerned, there isn’t much difference except the increase in screen size and battery capacity. Instead of a 5.6 inch screen, the Pixel 3a XL will pack a larger 6 inch display with 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution. The battery capacity is bumped to a whopping 3,700 mAh. 

In terms of pricing, the Pixel 3a will be sold in $399 in the US while the Indian variant will go on sale at a much costlier Rs.39,999 price. The Pixel 3a XL is priced at $499 in the US and Rs. 44,999 in India.
