Google doesn’t appear to want to keep the release date of the
budget Pixel devices a
secret as an announcement teaser for the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL
has appeared on the Google Store.
The poster reveals a simple message “On May 7, something big
is coming to the Pixel universe.” The announcement comes shortly
after Stephen Hall from 9to5Google tweeted
that sources had suggested both the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL would
be going online on May 7.
Rather unsurprisingly, the May 7 release date coincides with the
first day of Google I/O 2019 developer conference. The release of
the budget orientated devices could be a nice way to open the
As well as the release date of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, the
prices of the devices were also leaked
earlier today that suggests the price of the devices could be
higher than originally anticipated. The two Pixel devices are
expected to be positioned as more affordable products in the Pixel
series and be spec’d as such with a slower processor than the
current Pixel 3. However, with smartphones pushing the $1000 mark,
an affordable price tag can be somewhat relative.
Regardless, it seems that we won’t have long to wait until
Google officially unveils the two new Pixel devices on May 7,
even though we pretty much know everything already.
