Google Pixel 3a & Pixel 3a XL

Google launched its much-awaited mid-range Pixel phones – the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL – at its developer conference Google IO. The Pixel 3a is priced at Rs 39,999 and the Pixel 3a XL is priced at  Rs 44,999.

The devices are pretty much like their flagship cousins, with a mid-tier processor and no wireless charging support. More importantly, they use the same rear camera as the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3a. So you can expect these phones to capture some sharp and punchy images. Plus, there’s a headphone jack on offering too.
