A new leak has revealed the packaging for the Pixel 3a as well as some specs and price info on Google's upcoming phones. Google already teased new hardware announcements for its I/O 2019 event when it released a Pixel 3 TV spot in partnership with Marvel, ahead of the Avengers: Endgame release.

The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are about the be launched very soon, and the phones have been following in the steps of the Pixel 3 in more ways than one - specifically the fact that they've been leaked spectacularly.

According to Lee, the Pixel 3a will have two storage options: 64GB and 128GB.

That's a shame, because the Pixel 3 and its larger cousin are really good phones with standout software and photography abilities.

The Pixel 3a will weigh about 150 gams and be available in Just Black, Clearly white, and Purple-ish. The Pixel 3a is expected to come with a 1080p (FHD+) display.

Virgil Van Dijk’s focused on Barcelona, not Ballon d’Or
Many believed it was a two-horse race between Van Dijk and Sterling for the men's Player of the Year award. And that is because the 27-year-old Dutchman has faith in the way Liverpool have defended this season.

Apple defends the removal of certain apps that monitor screen time
It is not entirely out of the question that Apple may be using some feeble excuses to lock in as many users as possible. Developers violating the policy were informed and given to update their apps, and some of them did, Apple said.

Thiem rides out hard start to ease to Barcelona Open victory
Thiem will now have a few days off prior to the start of the next big date of the pre-Roland Garros calendar, the Madrid Masters. It was his first final on clay since last year's French Open, where he also lost to the Spaniard.

The Google Pixel 3a will cost $399 and the Google Pixel 3a XL will cost $479. That said, it's unlikely that Google will even bring the new mid-range devices to our shores.

While the box is not all that exciting, the supposed price points for the Pixel 3a and 3a XL most certainly are. Last time around, we saw a new faded purple color variant by the popular tipster Evan Blass. The phones are claimed to have an "extraordinary" camera with Google's Night Sight, Portrait Mode, Motion Auto Focus, and unlimited Google Photos storage. The Google Pixel 3a, on the one hand, has a 5.6-inch display that sports an 18.5:9 aspect ratio 2220x1080p FHD+, resulting in a pixel density of 441ppi. Again, we don't know how "bad" it is for the Pixel 3 but as Ars notes, it was "bad enough" to be mentioned in the earnings call.

As for the specifications, the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL are likely to be powered by Snapdragon 670 and Snapdragon 710, respectively, along with 4GB of RAM on each.

Google has yet to make an official announcement but the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL have been listed online on Bluetooth SIG which indicates their Bluetooth connectivity is ready.
