Google’s upcoming budget-friendly devices – Google Pixel 3a and the Google Pixel 3a XL – have been in many news reports recently. According to reports, the Google Pixel 3a and the Google Pixel 3a XL will be Google’s next devices instead of the Google Pixel 4 and the Google Pixel 4 XL. And before their launch, the Google Pixel 3a and the Google Pixel 3a XL have accidentally been leaked by Google on its official store.
And now, another news comes that the upcoming Pixel devices from Google are being tested in India itself. However, this has not been confirmed by the California-based technology giant.
Earlier, popular leakster Roland Quandt took to Twitter saying that both Google Pixel 3a and Google Pixel 3a XL will be priced ‘very low’ as compared to the regular Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. It should be noted that currently, the Pixel 3 starts at a price of Rs 57,940 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage while the Pixel 3 XL holds a starting price of Rs 60,890 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. So, considering the fact that the upcoming devices from Google, Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL will be budget-centric devices they might have a price much lower than their flagship counterparts.
The Google Pixel 3a and the Google Pixel 3a XL will be the watered-down version of their original counterparts and will most probably their specifications would not be as impressive as Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Google has already confirmed the presence of the devices saying that it has been working on the devices. But till now there is no word on the official launch date or pricing of the smartphones.
Google has been testing Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL in India lately. .in might get these at very "low" prices (when compared to pricing in EU/US). 3a valued at 300 USD, 3a XL at 350 USD when imported for testing. No clue if this was based on estimated retail or value of shipment
