Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL: the cheapest “pixels” with a Snapdragon 670 chip, but with the same camera

Today, the conference for Google I / O 2019 developers started, and on the very first day the company presented its

new smartphones - Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. These are the “semi-flames” that got most of the features of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL and a pretty nice price tag.

Design

Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are very similar to theirelder brothers: the same plastic case, the same distinctive insert in the upper part of the back cover. That's just Pixel 3a XL did not inherit the "monobrow" - it is not in fashion now. Instead, it turned out pretty wide frame.

Between themselves, new models differ only in screen size: Pixel 3a has a 5.6-inch display, and Pixel 3a XL has a 6-inch display. Both are OLED with Full HD + resolution.

What's inside

Both smartphones got a Qualcomm processorSnapdragon 670 with a graphics accelerator Adreno 615, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in. But the battery capacity is different: the younger model 3000 mAh, the older - 3700 mAh. There is also a quick charge of 18 watts.

The main camera here is single, but howpractice shows, and one is a warrior in the field, and in the case of Google - what kind of warrior. Like the Pixel 3, this is a Sony IMX363 (f / 1.8) 12.2-megapixel sensor with optical and electronic image stabilization systems. Functions are also preserved: Top Shot, Super Res Zoom and Night Sight, as well as unlimited storage in Google Photos. Recall, this is the best single camera in the DxOMark rating.

But the front camera is no longer double - only one 8 megapixel sensor (f / 2.0) remains.

It also has NFC, a fingerprint scanner,Active Edge technology that can recognize side-clicking and Android 9.0 Pie OS with three-year support, including updates and new versions of the system.
