Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL pics and specs reveal all ahead of formal debut

There’s less than one week to go before the so-called Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL arrive, or so we’ve been led to believe. Google’s annual developer conference, Google I/O gets started on May 7, and is the perfect venue to reveal new hardware.

There has been no shortage of rumors or speculation around the “Lite” versions of Google’s Pixel 3 phones. Things got started for the low-cost alternatives all the way back in fall 2018; however, they’re finally coming to a head.

A number of photos and renders have made their way online in the last few days, pretty much spoiling the look of the Pixel 3a and its larger counterpart, the Pixel 3a XL.

One such source of rumors, 91mobiles, provided a few clear looks at the phones and, in the process, seemingly confirmed hardware details. These images dovetail with those shared by DroidLife.
