Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL debuted back in October and are most appealing for their software and camera system.

Pixel 3 is the smaller of the two handsets, coming with a 5.5-inch P-OLED display as opposed to the 6.3-inch P-OLED panel present on the Pixel 3 XL.

As expected, the larger Google device also has a bigger battery capacity than its brother, delivering a 3,430mAh cell compared to the 2,915mAh unit inside the standard Pixel 3.

Differences in screen and battery sizes aside, both Pixel handsets come with the same internals and features.

The Android hardware has been made incredibly alluring thanks to a sale from Google that has lowered the starting price of the hardware to £589.

While the Easter offers from the American tech giant will surely be appealing to Android enthusiasts, they may be worth skipping for a very important reason.

That is because Google recently posted a teaser for new Pixel hardware on its online store that has been heavily rumoured to be two new budget Pixel 3 handsets.

The post from Google read: “Help is on the way.

“On 7 May, something big is coming to the Pixel universe.”

The American tech giant’s new phones have been heavily rumoured to be called the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL respectively.

Leaks surrounding the hardware have suggested it could come with the same camera system as the regular Pixel 3 but make compromises in other areas such as design and processor in order to achieve a more affordable price tag.

A budget Pixel 3 device was first claimed to be in development by Russian outlet Rozetked that displayed claimed images of the hardware.

The alleged cheaper Pixel product was shown with noticeable bezels above and below its display, a plastic casing and was said to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 670 chipset.

Interestingly, the supposed cheaper device was displayed with a headphone jack, a design characteristic not present on the standard Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL.

WinFuture has insisted the Pixel 3a will come with a 5.6-inch display while the Pixel 3a XL will tout a 6-inch panel.

Moreover, the outlet has speculated the new devices could be priced at around €450 (£389.80).

If the pricing from the German publication is accurate, the new budget Pixel devices could provide Android fans with the cheapest way to get Google’s signature and incredibly popular camera system, even when new deals for the Pixel 3 are taken into account.
