Google Pixel 3a full spec sheet leaks ahead of tomorrow’s announcement

This year is particularly notable because we are expecting some hardware announcement from Google along with software development.

Further, Google would offer at least three years of software and security updates for the Pixel 3a and 3a XL.

Google's baked-in AI, including squeezable sides that trigger Google Assistant and on-device music recognition, are also present in the Pixel 3a series.

More from Google I/O 2019 is available in the conference live feed. By contrast, the Pixel 3a XL will cost $80 more, at $479, with the only difference being a larger screen size and battery.

The new Google Pixel 3a phone is the anti-iPhone.

Google Pixel 3a Series Will Not Ship With Freebies You'd Expect
Every year, Google comes with new advancements in its assistant and showcases how Google Assistant is smarter than others. The Pixel 3a lineup is expected to feature an old-ish design as per today's standards and have massive bezels.

Trump Retweets Firefighters Who Say They Won’t Vote For Joe Biden
Pennsylvania is a key battleground state where white, working-class defections from the Democratic Party helped Trump win in 2016. Senator Bernie Sanders , 77, and former Vice President Joe Biden , 76, are the oldest contenders in the vast Democratic field.

North won't seek re-election as NRA president
Mike Cook, who works at a shipyard in Alabama, said he's been disappointed that gun rights haven't seen much movement under Trump. It is uncertain the NRA will be following a series of shootings that has public sentiment against gun violence.

Bezels aside, the Pixel 3a XL carries a 6-inch Full HD OLED display, which is slightly smaller than the 6.3-inch Quad HD panel you'll find on its pricier sibling.

The company is also walking back a controversial design decision for its high-end phones: The Pixel 3a will once again have a headphone jack, something that Google started to omit starting with the Pixel 2 that launched in 2017. It's a single 12.2MP rear camera with support for HDR+ processing, Night Sight, portrait mode, and more. The Indian e-commerce giant, Flipkart has also made a product page live on its website which although does not give away a lot but hints towards the launch of the Google Pixel phones. However, it's still plastic, and it probably won't hold up as well as the Pixel 3. Perhaps the Google Pixel 3a can boost sales by bringing the Pixel name (and camera) to a broader audience. As for authentication, like the Pixel 3 devices, the Pixel 3a XL would also be coming with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor alongside Adreno 615 graphics, 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64GB of storage. Of course, there is no secondary wide camera like on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL. It will have the Always-on Display and Always-listening features. Google also points out that all your photos are backed up for free and without limit-something Apple can't say. Now, detailed specifications and features of Google's upcoming mid-range Pixel have allegedly surfaced online, alongside high-quality renders of the Pixel 3a in its white and black avatars.

No pricing info was included this time, but a previous leak suggested that the Google Pixel 3a will retail for $649 in Canada ($482 United States / £369) while the Google Pixel 3a XL will sell for $799 Canadian ($594 U.S. / £454).

Google unveiled a slew of other new technology on Tuesday, including updates to its digital assistant, increased privacy controls and a new smart speaker.
