After days of leaked information about the Pixel3a, the official announcement dropped from Google, and it confirms everything and more.
There was a time when Google phones were affordable, but somewhere along the line, it passed the 1000$ mark. The company wanted to provide a reference device for other manufacturers to follow and to give developers an affordable tool to work with. Needless to say, there aren’t too many developers ready to spend $1000 every year.
From the look of it, Google remembered why they started making phones, and they built a more affordable variant for Pixel 3 and named it Pixel 3a. Other companies launch a second version more powerful than the earlier one; Google releases a less powerful version at half the price.
All the good bits are still there
