Google is currently testing its next devices, the Pixel 3a and 3a XL, in India. Interestingly, the two devices have import valuations that are less than what one would expect, which is, perhaps, a sign that they could sell for cheaper than most have claimed.

Google is set to release its next pair of devices soon. The duo, now all but confirmed to be the Pixel 3a and 3a XL, could be unveiled as early as next month, and will serve as cheaper alternatives to the flagship Pixel 3 phones that were launched about six months.

While we already know much about the devices, their price tags have been elusive, which is a tad annoying as their prices are probably the most important detail. According to Roland Quandt, however, the mid-range Pixels could be cheaper than expected.

Apparently, Google has been testing the Pixel 3a in India, and the device has an import valuation quoted at US$300. The larger, more expensive 3a XL is valued at US$350. We're not sure what exactly that valuation implies, but it does give us a point of reference. 

Since those figures likely already account for VAT, we'd be surprised if the devices retail for significantly higher. In any case, we're expecting the Pixel 3a and 3a XL to sell for about US$400 and US$450—in India, at least.
