T-Mobile is purportedly stocking up on Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphones
The Google I/O 2019 conference is set to begin tomorrow in Mountain View, California where the search giant is expected to unveil a host of new smartphones. The most recent rumors are pointing towards a pair of mid-range Pixel smartphones called the Pixel 3a and a larger Pixel 3a XL. These two devices will supposedly debut at under $500 each compared to >$800 for the original Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
Independent sources close to 9to5Google and Android Police are claiming that T-Mobile will indeed be carrying the upcoming Pixel devices in their brick-and-mortar stores for the first time ever. Previously, Verizon was the official carrier and seller even though there were no major compatibility issues preventing Pixel users from migrating to the T-Mobile network.
The news comes just a few days after users spotted the Google Pixel 3a XL at a Best Buy location. Major retailers are clearly prepping for the imminent announcement and launch of the new devices. Watch the 90-minute Google I/O keynote on YouTube at 10 AM PST on May 7 where more will likely be revealed.
