Google has finally decided to launch a less expensive version of their flagship smartphone series “Pixel” dubbed as Pixel 3a.
Google Pixel 3a is being marketed as “Entry Level Premium” Smartphone.
It is set to be priced at ₹ 39,999.
Google’s Pixel always been a total eye candy for people who love clicking photos. We can say it pens down every pixel as it should be.
There will be two version Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.
This phone comes bundled with Android 9 (Pie) with pure stock Android user interface.
The phone doesn’t sport any notch, which in my opinion is a good thing.
The setup you will be getting with this device is
- Octa core Snapdragon 670 (2GHz + 1.7GHz)
- Adreno 615 GPU
- 3000mAh battery , 3700mAh for XL
- Full HD OLED display with screen size 5.6” and 6”
- Screen resolution of 2220 × 1080 and 2160 × 1080
- 18w Fast charging
- 8.2mm overall thickness
- And just 149 grams in weight.
Now let’s talk about the star, the camera.
The Google Pixel 3a features same camera as Google Pixel 3, that is 12.2MP Dual Sony IMX363 sensor with Optical as well as Electronic Image Stabilisation, although the graphic core is missing but the AI won’t let you miss it.
It features a single camera setup on the back, even when most smartphone has went to dual/triple camera.
Its more like every smartphone two camera needed for bokeh effect and Pixel says hold my beer.
The AI perfectly tags with sensor allowing us to take stunning shot.
The front camera is not so celebrated but don’t let this fool you, its does take beautiful selfies.
Pixel 3a has a Polycarbonate Unibody design, with matte finish along with dual colour tone, backpanel is not glass but still it is a good flaunt.
It has got some chin and forehead.
On the screen department, they have went with Asahi’s Dragontrail Glass instead of the Gorilla Glass from Corning.
On the back they have the Fingerprint scanner.
It also has same security feature as the previous device.
Overall the look is a lot cleaner and crisp.
If you are going for camera only then go for it, cause it won’t get any better than this. It can handle day to day tasks smoothly, but A No No for heavy gaming.
Being lighter is also a plus.
Google’s Pixel 3a is going against some top performers in that price range, If it succeeds then we might see some more cost effective gems soon.
