Technology giant Google is expected to launch its much-talked-about Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphones at its I/O 2019 developer conference that is scheduled to begin on May 7. What adds credibility to the reports claiming that launch is the fact that a dedicated page for the Google’s upcoming Pixel smartphones has been added to Flipkart, which states that more details about the two will be given on May 8. Today, a Google Pixel 3a XL handset has also been spotted at a Best Buy retail outlet.
The smartphone was kept in the open so that everybody could see it. And with this, we have got yet another confirmation that Google is indeed planning to launch the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a mobiles soon. The photo of the smartphone that was made on the box has also given a few details about it. We now also know that Google Pixel 3a XL will be available in two colour options – White and Black. However, we are not as yet ruling out the possibility of a third colour variant.
The report about Google Pixel 3a making an appearance on Best Buy first appeared in Android Police, and it also said that the retail outlet had the device in stock. Along with the report, the publication also shared some images of Pixel 3a XL boxes lying out in the open at a Best Buy outlet in Springfield, Ohio.
Much like all other Pixel smartphones, the Google Pixel 3a XL comes in a White coloured box and show the device will be available in White and Black coloured options. The back panel of the smartphone has a single rear camera and a fingerprint scanner. The box also shows that the Pixel 3a XL will feature a 6-inch display and will be available in a 64GB storage option. Multiple RAM and storage options of the device are also expected at the launch.
A number of leaks about the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphones have surfaced online over the last few months. A render has also been leaked that suggests that the handsets will come with traditional displays and bezels on top and bottom edges. The search giant is expected to launch the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL as the affordable versions of its flagship Pixel 3 smartphones.
If we only speak about the Pixel 3a XL smartphone, it is expected to come with a 6-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) display that has an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a pixel density of 402ppi. It has also been reported that the handset will be powered by a Snapdragon 670 SoC and house a 3,700mAh battery.
