Google I/O 2019 Livestream: How to Watch the Keynote

Google I/O 2019 Livestream: How to Watch the Keynote

Google is releasing cheaper versions of its smartphone in an effort to appeal to budget-minded consumers who aren't willing to spend about ₹60,000 on the Pixel 3.

Google has unveiled the latest entry into its popular Pixel smartphone range during the opening keynote of its annual developer conference Google IO.

"And that's why in Android Q we're making a set of OS modules updateable directly over the air, so now these can be updated individually as soon as they're available and without a reboot of the device". "The display is once again OLED with FHD+ (1080 x 2160px) resolution but it reaches 6.0".

Here is the specs comparison between the recently announced Pixel 3a and the existing Google flagship Pixel 3. However, it's still plastic, and it probably won't hold up as well as the Pixel 3.

The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are available from the Google Store today, and Google says it'll be available from its partners tomorrow. Under the hood, the Pixel 3a XL is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC. There is support for 18W fast charging and USB Power Delivery 2.0. As for the leaked pricing is concerned, up until now, these Pixel 3a devices were considered to be mid-range phones, which were expected to come under Rs 30,000 price bracket.

But I like most of the shots that I took, just a couple of them I felt like I rushed. "I think adversity is always good", he said. The others are Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, Dwight Howard and LaMarcus Aldridge ...

In the end, while Google made a handful of compromises to create the Pixel 3a, every change makes sense and feels thoughtfully considered.

So can the Pixel 3a dethrone the OnePlus 6T? "This is a major "reset" on its Pixel strategy". But three generations into the Pixel line, it's clear that this is the closest thing we're going to get. The usual suspects include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, back-mounted fingerprint sensors, and all the other bells and whistles.

On the OnePlus 6T you'll find a 16MP/20MP dual rear camera, as opposed to a single 12.2MP snapper on the Pixel 3a - on paper it looks like the OnePlus 6T wins hands-down here, but processing is just as important as specs when it comes to smartphone photography. Both of the chips are in no way comparable to Snapdragon 800-series chips but with Google customisation, these chips would be more than enough for the regular users and casual gamers. While this is a price of the 6GB model, Google is also expected to sell a 4GB RAM version with 32GB storage and we can expect the phone to sell for a cheaper price. It too has a bigger battery claim than its flagship large-screen alternative; its 3700mAh battery is up from the 3430mAh battery in the Pixel 3XL. This is the only Pixel phone on the market with a 3.5mm headphone jack, a feature lacking in the more expensive Pixel 3.

This will be good news to the ears of smart watch enthusiasts since Google skipped the Pixel watch on lasts years I/O event.
