The mid-tier Pixel 3a and 3aXL, which cost Rs 39,999 and Rs 44,999 respectively, are now being seen as Google's attempt to revive dwindling sales numbers.
The Pixel 3aXL features the same primary camera as the Pixel 3XL -- a 12.2MP sensor with aperture of f/1.8, dual pixel phase-detection autofocus and optical stabilisation.
The arrival of the Pixel 3A and 3A XL could well be Google's midnight-tryst-with-destiny moment. They underline the fact that Google's hardware division is getting serious.
Google sends a customer 10 units of Google Pixel worth over $9,000 after he requested a refund.
Google is expected to officially introduce the new smartphones at the upcoming I/O developer conference in May.
Google had already chosen not to include the "Unlock with Voice Match" feature when it launched the "Pixel 3" and "Pixel 3XL".
It is good to see Google taking serious note of the flaws in the Pixel 2 XL and changing vendors (from LG to Samsung) for this year's Pixel 3 XL.
Airtel will begin the delivery of the devices on November 3.
The Pixel 3 will be available Oct. 18 and sell at prices starting at $799. That's $200 below the least expensive iPhone XS that came out last month.
Google doesn't disclose its phone shipments, unlike Apple, which has sold about 388 million iPhones since the first Pixel came out in October 2016.
