Google, at its I/O conference, launched the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphones, which will be available in the Indian market starting May 15 onwards. The Pixel 3a is designed to fit nicely in your hand and comes with an OLED display. While the Google Pixel 3a is priced at Rs 39,999, the Pixel 3a XL costs Rs 44,999.
Both the smartphones are available in three colours – just black, clearly white, purple-ish.
The Pixel 3a comes with a 5.6-inch display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage, a 12.2MP rear and an 8MP front cameras and a 3,000 mAh battery. The Pixel 3a XL features a 6-inch display and a 3,700mAh battery.
Both smartphones let you take great photos using Google’s HDR+ technology with features like portrait mode, super res zoom and night sight. Both devices offer high-quality photos and videos with free, unlimited storage on Google Photos.
Google is also providing three years of security and operating system updates with these new devices. They also come with the custom-built Titan M chip to help protect your most sensitive data.
The Pixel 3a, along with the entire Pixel portfolio, is also getting a preview of AR in Google Maps, meaning the next time you're uncertain of which direction to take, you can switch to Google Maps AR – it uses your phone’s camera to scan your surroundings and give you walking directions, which appear on your phone’s screen overlaid on your surroundings in real time. So, now you no longer have to look for the blue dot on the map. This helps you know precisely where you are and exactly which way to take (in areas covered on Street View where there’s a good data connection and good lighting).
Time lapse is also coming to the Google Pixel 3a, so you can capture an entire sunset in just a-few-seconds-long video – something that’s great for posting on social media or messaging to your friends.
