Google launches $399 Pixel Smartphone with best in class camera

Company representatives would not confirm what the minimum required specifications are, or whether the newly launched Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will be able to handle the on-device processing required.

The lower-cost Pixel 3a series was developed by Google's production team based in Taiwan after the company completed a deal in January 2018 to acquire Taiwan-based HTC Corp.'s smartphone ODM assets for US$1.1 billion.

Something positive - Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL have the 3.5mm jack which was absent from the Pixel 3.

In the future Google expect to keep releasing a mid-range Pixel mid-cycle with the new Pixel features from the premium Pixel ported across to it while maintaining the Pixel experience. Both are packed with AI capabilities, including many that take place on-device without sending information to servers.

The Pixel 3 has a "soft touch glass back" while the Pixel 3a has a polycarbonate body - the difference is small.

The Pixel 3a is here and we got a chance to get a first look at the phone at Google IO 2019.

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.

The 3a has a 3,000mAh battery, with the 3a XL boasting a larger 3,700mAh that Google is claiming can get 7 hours of battery life from 15 minutes of chaarging, and up to 30 hours on a full charge.

The hub can also be set to recognize different household members using facial recognition - again on the device itself, not in the cloud. Display: Come in almost the same display size and quality Google Pixel 3a: 5.6-inch FHD+ OLED display with 441ppi. The Pixel 3 has 8MP wide-angle and normal cameras, and the wider-angled camera has ƒ/2.2 aperture and also fixed focus.

The new phones, which have 4GB of memory and storage of 64GB, are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 670 processor, Google said.

Here is the specs comparison between the recently announced Pixel 3a and the existing Google flagship Pixel 3. The company is also bringing its entire phone line-up, including last year's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL, to a range of new mobile carriers, including Sprint and T-Mobile.

Both phones also have the ability to output audio with Bluetooth and USB-C audio.

Once this begins rolling out, we'll let you know.
