We had earlier made the argument that for $500 for the Pixel 3a, it was simply not worth it as it was just about $100-$150 shy of buying a phone with much better specs, but at the same time, maybe for some, the difference in price is simply too much for them to even consider. Turns out there might be some good news after all.
In a video uploaded by YouTube channel This Is Tech Today, they claim that they have gotten word on how much the upcoming Pixel 3a smartphones could cost, with the Pixel 3a priced starting at $399, while the larger Pixel 3a XL could be priced starting at $479.
With a base price of $399, it sure makes it an even more compelling handset. It is unclear if these were always the prices that Google was planning to charge, or if Google realized that $500 was a bit too expensive for customers to justify, especially when they can simply top up more money to get the Pixel 3.
Either way, we will learn more on the 7th of May which is when Google is expected to officially launch the device, so be sure to check back with us then if you’d like all the official details. In the meantime, here are several reasons to get excited for the Pixel 3a, and you can check out the video below if you’d like more details about the upcoming handset.
