It's amazing that, despite originally hitting the rumor mill almost a full year ago and putting out pictures four months ago, Google's mid-range Pixel phone is still the subject of rumors. The latest report comes from 9to5Google, which has a new round of specs.
Just like with the flagship lineup, there are two phone sizes in Google's supposedly-launching-someday mid-range lineup. What exactly these devices will be called is still up in the air. These devices have had the codename 'Bonito' and 'Sargo,' and the rumor mill has referred to the consumer names as 'Pixel 3 Lite' and 'Pixel 3 XL Lite' in the past. As discovered by XDA, though, the recent Android Q Beta is calling Bonito and Sargo the 'Pixel 3a' and 'Pixel 3a XL.' The names are not quite as bad as 'LG V50 ThinQ 5G.' But they're still pretty wordy.
9to5Google says the smaller 'Pixel 3a' has a 2220×1080 5.6-inch screen, while the bigger 'Pixel 3a XL' has a 6-inch screen of unspecified resolution. One important bit of news is that the site claims the display technology is actually OLED instead of the LCD tech that previous rumors have claimed. The report says the Pixel 3a has a Snapdragon 670, 4GB of RAM, a 3000mAh battery, a USB-C port, and again reiterates that the camera is identical to the industry-leading camera on the premium Pixels. The Pixel 3a XL likely has similar specs, of course with a bigger battery.
