Previous reports had claimed that the upcoming mid-range Pixel phones from Google could be hitting the market as Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite, but a report from the last week had revealed that these phones may respectively debut as Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. A fresh report by 9to5 Google has detailed information on the specifications of these devices.
The new report actually corroborates on the specs of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL that have surfaced in the recent months. The new leak reveals that the Pixel 3a will be featuring a 5.6-inch display whereas its larger sibling will be fitted with a 6-inch screen. These phones are now expected to release in Just Black and Clearly White color options. The report states that the search engine giant will also sell a third color variant in a bid to sell more units.
As far as the design of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are concerned, they are expected to feature 18:9 aspect ratio screens and dual-tone rear panel with single rear camera and a fingerprint reader. The Pixel 3a and 3a XL will be borrowing Active Edge squeezable sides from the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL handsets. Some of the other features that Pixel 3a duo will be borrowing Pixel 3 duo are 64 GB of inbuilt storage, eSIM support and Titan M security chip.
The Pixel 3a will be featuring a 5.6-inch OLED panel with full HD+ resolution of 2200 x 1080 pixels. It will be fueled by Snapdragon 670 chipset and 4 GB of RAM.

There is no word on the launch date of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphones. A recent report had revealed that India could be one of the countries to receive the Pixel 3a and 3a XL.
