Made by Google’s Pixel 3a mid-ranger has been thoroughly leaked in recent weeks. In fact, the more recent ones from case makers do not contribute anything particularly new to the conversation. The same can be said about tonight’s, but it is notable for revealing the phone in purple.
In a follow-up to Tuesday’s leak, Evan Blass this evening tweetedwhat is is likely an official and final render of the Pixel 3a. The device’s rear is shown off “in purple,” but Google is again going for more faded colors just like the Pixel 2 and Pixel 3
This shade of purple is very light and frankly borders on eggshell white, especially the lower portion. The “G” logo is darker than the rest of the phone’s body, while the power button is delightfully a bright yellow. The best way to notice that there is a difference is to put them side-by-side where the orange button provides a good contrast.
In terms of the creative name that Google will inevitably select for this color variant, it’s alignment to purple is closer to “Not Pink” than “Kinda Blue.”
We’re expecting the Pixel 3a to be available in two sizes; with 5.6-inch and 6-inch 1080p OLED displays respectively. Both will have mid-range specs compared to last year’s Pixel 3 lineup, including 4GB of RAM, Snapdragon 670 processors, 3,000mAh batteries, and 12-megapixel cameras on their backs. The phones could also feature traditional 3.5mm headphone jacks. A full reveal is expected to come on May 7th, at Google’s I/O 2019 keynote.
We already told you basically everything there is to know about the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, and Google itself has even — accidentally — confirmed their existence. Now, we have our first hands on an image of some new third-party cases for the phones
According to a source familiar with the phones, the forthcoming mid-range Google Pixels are indeed called the “Google Pixel 3a” and the “Google Pixel 3a XL”, as was first rumored last week. We can also independently confirm some previously-rumored specifications and offer some more details about the devices…
