Almost a couple of hours back, Google’s I/O kicked off, when Google was expected to host its first hardware event. The highlights will be the latest mid-range pixel smartphone devices from Google named Google Pixel 3a and Google Pixel 3a XL. The duo was the worst-kept secrets for Google after Google Pixel 3, however.
Thanks to the reliable leakster Roland Quandt a.k.a. @rquandt, a translated spec sheet was created on Twitter. Let’s have a look at the specifications of Google Pixel 3a. The specs sheet appears to be translated from a different source, though.

First of all, when we saw the specs appear on the retail packaging, we already knew that Pixel 3a would have a 5.6-inch display. The Full HD+ (1080p) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio is now known to the viewing. We’re also happy to learn that the display is OLED so the mode is always compatible.
The onboard battery contains a 3,000mAh battery and it’s powered by a 670 CPU (Qualcomm Snapdragon) which is coupled with the 4GB of RAM. We see here that the smartphone body is made of polycarbonate, which keeps the handset costs down. Very much like everyone, we are wondering, how this beast will feel while holding in hand.
The section in which the handset really shines is its camera department. The main camera is a 12.2MP sensor with dual pixel autofocus and 1.4-micron pixels, and has an F/1.8 lens, the same as in pixels 3. We look forward to the comparison between photos and the Pixel 3. The front camera is the same – 8MP with f/2.0. Naturally, on Pixel 3 and 3 XL – but no secondary wide camera is available.
