Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL have lower price and camera that sees in the dark | Cell phone

After countless leaks, Google is finally launching the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL: they start at $ 399 and $ 479, respectively, and offer a camera with Night Sight that you see in the dark; up to 30 hours of use per charge; and 3 years of guaranteed Android updates.

The biggest difference between Pixel 3a and 3a XL is in the size of the screen and battery: the smaller model has a 5.6-inch OLED screen and a capacity of 3,000 mAh; while the larger device features a 6-inch display and 3,700 mAh.

Both come with Full-HD + resolution, Snapdragon 670 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of non-expandable storage. Oh, and the 3.5mm headphone jack is back, following the USB-C port. The box charger has 18 W, guaranteeing 7 hours of use with 15 minutes of recharge.

Of course, the highlight of the Pixel 3a line is on the camera. Both have a 12.2 megapixel sensor with f / 1.8 aperture. That’s enough for Google’s algorithms: Night Sight mode can practically see in the dark; Super Res Zoom can provide digital zoom with higher image quality; and portrait mode blurs the background.

Pixel 3a and 3a XL run Android 9 Pie, of course, and have three years of guaranteed updates for the next versions of Android and for security patches. They also get some features before everyone else: for example, the augmented reality mode on Google Maps for walking directions.

Like other Pixel devices, the 3rd and 3rd XL come with a Titan M chip for added security. However, they do not have unlimited uncompressed photo storage on Google Photos; users receive only “high quality” mode, available for any Android or iPhone.

The Pixel 3a and 3a XL cost “half the price of premium phones”, as remembers Google. They are on sale from this Tuesday (7) in lilac, white or black. These phones can be purchased in 13 different countries, including the USA, Canada, India and Japan; Brazil, of course, is not on the list.
