Google is reportedly working on another version of the Pixel 3 and the device could arrive in the first half of 2019. While some you will want to go with the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, or another device on the market, others might want to wait for the company’s rumored Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, formerly known as the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL.
If you’re looking for a new phone, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL should be at the top of your list. Google’s 2018 flagships are two of the best phones on the market and they’re worth a look if you’re currently using Android or if you’re a potential convert.
Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL should also be on your shortlist. They’re getting older, but they’re outstanding devices and much cheaper than they once were.
Before you pickup a Pixel 3, Pixel 2, or another device, make sure you dig into 2019 Pixel rumors. Google is likely working on a Pixel 4 for the fall and it looks like we could see the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL serve as the bridge between the Pixel 3/Pixel 3 XL and the new Pixel 4 flagships.
Pixel 3a Rumors
The Pixel 3a has been in the rumor mill for awhile now and we’ve seen a steady flow of new information in 2019. The device has leaked multiple times and undergone a name change.
Google’s new Pixel 3 reportedly comes with a different design, a Snapdragon processor, Android Pie, and several other features that should pique your interest.
The device looks like it will be a mid-range alternative to the flagship models which makes it an interesting device for those who want a Pixel experience without breaking the bank.
The Pixel 3a probably won’t launch in March but it should launch long before the Pixel 4. And with a launch creeping closer, it’s time to decide if you want to buy now or wait.
In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to wait for the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL and the best reasons to skip them and find something else.
Wait for Awesome Cameras
Google's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL feature one of the best camera experiences on the market.
The two devices feature a 12.2 megapixel rear camera with f/1.7 aperture and OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) to go along with dual 8MP front-facing cameras.
The cameras shoot excellent photos and video and they're backed up by an array of impressive software features including Top Shot' and Night Sight.
According to Andro News, the Pixel 3a comes with a single 12-MP rear camera along with a new autofocus sensor. The site claims the picture quality is on par with the Pixel 3's.
While this might seem implausible, remember that the true power of the Pixel 3's camera experience comes from the software.
