As expected, today at the conference Google I/O 2019 the company Google presented a couple of inexpensive smartphones Pixel. Machines, despite the appearance more typical for the previous model year, the names of Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. Innovations have to play in the middle price segment of the market where devices the search giant has not been presented since the sunset of the Nexus line, which is completed in 2015.
Despite the fact that on the new Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL we learned last year, when a prototype model was in the hands of multiple it applications, the devices are still surprised. Not appearance, which they borrowed from the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, and its characteristics and, most importantly, price.
Pixel 3a — harakteristiki
Let’s start with a younger model.
Pixel 3a has a 5.6-inch display with Full HD resolution+. Surprisingly, it is AMOLED and not IPS-matrix with a pixel density of 441 ppi. This means that the display of a novelty will be deprived of the flaws that have sinned Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. They suffered from poor color, faded pictures and often just fail for no apparent reason.
Hardware base of smartphone is the Snapdragon 670 graphics coprocessor Adreno 615 and 4 GB of RAM. Rumors about increasing the RAM to 6 GB is not justified. However, as practice showed, even 4 GB devices “pixel” line should be enough. The main thing, correctly to handle them.
Battery capacity Pixel 3a is equal to 3000 mAh, with eh support fast charging with a power of 18 watts. But induction module for wireless charging, no – impact positioning of the model.
Budget smartphone with best camera
But all the disadvantages of Pixel 3a compensates for his camera. Google has not regretted for the new module that it installs into the “adult” Pixel 3 with the same features, from portrait photography to advanced night mode.
Pixel 3a XL
Pixel 3a XL came almost a full copy of the Junior model, except for size. Its main difference is a 6-inch display. The increase in screen diagonal and has led to the increase in battery capacity, which is 3500 mAh. But the hardware Pixel 3a XL, according to preliminary information, completely identical to the Pixel 3. Apparently, the last time Google refused to use the more advanced CPU, considering that a Snapdragon 670 can handle at least as good. RAM, camera and fast charging technology is also identical.
The retail price of Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL with internal memory of 64 GB starts at $ 399 and $ 479, respectively, which is more than acceptable, given the identity of the apparatus to the line Google Pixel and abilities of their cameras. However, until Russia doesn’t drive, so those wishing to get hold of them for personal use will have to turn to Resellers or to order machines from abroad.
