At its annual developer conference in Mountain View today, Google today announced two new additions to their Pixel family: Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. From a premium camera, having tools that will keep users connected to the world with their favorite apps, to a battery that is reliable for long stretches — all the while staying secure and up to date with the latest software — Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are all of these things and more, at half the price of many premium flagship phones.
Google Pixel 3a delivers what users have come to expect from a premium device. Starting with the award-winning camera, Pixel 3a takes stunning photos using Google’s HDR+ technology with features such as Portrait Mode, Super Res Zoom, and Night Sight to capture clear shots in low light. The all-new camera mode Time lapse is coming to Google Pixel 3a, so capture an entire sunset in just a few seconds of video—great for posting on social media or messaging to your friends. With Google Photos built in, users can save high-quality photos and videos with free, unlimited storage. It comes with an 18-Watt charger, and delivers up to 7 hours of battery life on a 15-minute charge and up to 30 hours on a full charge.
With Pixel 3a, all you need is to squeeze the phone to launch the Google Assistant, and easily send texts, get directions, and set reminders—simply using your voice.
Pixel 3a is protected against new threats thanks to three years of security and operating system updates. It also comes with the custom-built Titan M chip to help protect your most sensitive data.
New features at a more accessible price
Pixel makes it easy to use Google apps—like YouTube, Google Photos and Gmail—and Pixel 3a users will get access to new features first. Pixel 3a and the entire Pixel portfolio will get a preview of AR in Google Maps (only available in areas covered on Street View,) so the next time you’re getting around town you can see walking directions overlaid on the world itself, rather than looking at a blue dot on a map. This helps you know precisely where you are, and exactly which way to start walking.
