Evan Blass isn’t a new name in smartphone leaking business. He has a reputation that can hardly be questioned and it’s the reason we are talking about his latest tweet on the much-anticipated Google Pixel 3a.
The search giant is expected to unveil the Pixel 3a at next month’s Google I/O event and so far, we know quite a bit about the phone, but this doesn’t prevent us from knowing more ahead of the official launch.
We know that the phone is to be accompanied by an XL variant and we also know a bit about the specs to expect. And Blass has now given us a visual of the Pixel 3a as it should be when it is announced.
Just like other images leaked before, the Pixel 3a has the same old Pixel design that features a two-tone back panel with a single-lens camera and a fingerprint scanner down below. Further below is the big G’s logo.
The front resembles phones of yesteryears, where Google has significantly trimmed the bezels but still quite visible from all four sides. The screen, which is said to be a 5.6-inch panel on the Pixel 3a and a 6-inch panel on the XL, is slightly curved around the edges, just like the frame housing it.
The top bezel has a selfie camera that’s believed to be an 8MP unit alongside an earpiece. Also, the power button in the render has a nice paint job that leaves it standing out. Typical from Google.
The Pixel 3a and 3a XL are said to be Google’s attempt to cater to the midrange segment that has been unable to buy into the premium Pixel business since its inception a few years ago. This group is price sensitive, which is why it will be interesting to see how much the duo will cost.
