Google Releases Android Security Patch for May 2019, Includes 30 Security Fixes

Google Pixel 3a official ads and renders reveal pricing details, colour options & more

This means both the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will be slightly more affordable than the Pixel 3 and Pixel XL, both in the U.S. and India.

The smartphone is rumored to come equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage and is likely to be backed by a 3,000mAh battery, running Android 9.0 Pie. Google kicks off its developer-focused I/O event tomorrow with the traditional keynote presentation and all indication point to the new Pixel phones being announced then.

There's no IP68 rating for water and dust resistance to be found either, and Google has traded the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 for a mid-range Snapdragon 670.

The Titan M security chip ensures that your data and OS is safe Owners will also be able to easily switch from their old device to the Pixel 3a using the Quick Switch Adapter.

The two smartphones also come with Pixel-exclusive features like Google Assistant's call screen, AR Core, Digital Wellbeing, and Adaptive Battery. The design looks similar to the Pixel 3 with its dual-tone design and it still retains a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Also, it is expected to launch the nest hub max - a 10-inch screen version of Google home hub with stereo speakers and a nest camera. However, it's still plastic, and it probably won't hold up as well as the Pixel 3.

Active Edges, which lets you squeeze the sides of the phone to quickly summon Google Assistant have made the transition from Pixel 3 XL to Pixel 3a XL, too. In a new development, we have some news about one of the most critical aspect of any Pixel phone out there - the rear camera.

Google's Pixel phones left behind the affordable price points of the Nexus era, but the Pixels are some of the best smartphones you can buy. It will have the Always-on Display and Always-listening features. As someone who very quickly grew disappointed with last year's Pixels, I can honestly say the Pixel 3a XL has been worlds different where stability is concerned.

Now, adding to the wealth of leaked information, what is said to be the spec sheet for the Pixel 3a has surfaced online, as well as some fresh images of the "Just Black" model, all courtesy of Roland Quandt.

Every year, Google comes with new advancements in its assistant and showcases how Google Assistant is smarter than others. The Q also may offer a dark mode, which makes apps darker to reduce eye strain, along with improved privacy features to limit how much data apps can collect about you. Google sided with Verizon as its official launch partner but the device will also be coming to T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular.
