Remember the mid-range Pixel phones? They could be sold as the Pixel 3a and 3a XL
While the Pixel 3 phones are barely five months old, their premium price tags make them something of a luxury purchase. As such, it’s no surprise that rumors of two mid-range Pixel phones have been much welcomed since they started surfacing about a year ago.
Until now, information has claimed that the two mid-range Pixels would be named the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite but a new discovery in Google code implies that the reality may be different. According to XDA-Developers, the two devices could be sold as the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.
Having letters in the names of cheaper flagship models appears to be the in thing. We saw that with the iPhone XR last year, and Samsung also did something similar with the S10e last month. The Pixel 3a duo, in typical Google fashion, could follow the trend.
The 3a and 3a XL are referred to as “Bonito” and “Sargo” respectively. They’re expected to feature the same camera capabilities as the more expensive Pixel 3 flagships, and could be powered by the Snapdragon 670 and Snapdragon 710 respectively.
