Neither the real Pixel 3a product page, nor a new "Pixel Compare" page, were live as of when we checked, so this leak has only truly affirmed the name of the phone for the time being.

It can't be long until the Pixel 3a and 3a XL are announced for two reasons: the high-end Pixel 3 and 3 XL were announced in November 2018, and the latest 3a leaks have happened in April 2019.

As reported by 9to5Google, the now-removed Google Store pages revealed the Pixel 3a will have a 5.6-inch OLED screen at 1,080 x 2,220 pixels. The smartphone will come with Android 9.0 Pie operating system out-of-the-box and is said to offer 4GB of RAM.

Just before the above leak 9to5Google also found specs for both the Pixel 3a and 3a XL via the Google Play Developer console.

Rumours of the Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL have been doing rounds for months now. So, we can expect the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL to launch in India, starting at around Rs 25,000-Rs 27,000.

It seems that Google has revealed by mistake the arrival of the expected but never formalized mid-range smartphone. A premature listing of these phones along with their codenames have appeared on the Google Play Console through which their key specifications have been revealed.

What features will the Google Pixel 3a have - or lose?

As well as flagging up a release in the middle of the year, the hidden code includes a specs list: 4GB of RAM, and displays running at 1080 x 2160 pixels and 1080 x 2220 pixels respectively.

The two devices will arrive with 32GB / 64GB of storage, while a 12.2-megapixel camera is expected to be included on the back of both phones, the same sensor that sits on the back of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Unlike the Pixel 3 series that came with a metal and glass combination chassis, the Pixel 3a smartphones are likely to feature a polycarbonate body.

How much will the Google Pixel 3a cost? Now, the search engine giant has accidentally listed the aforementioned device on its product store. It will sports an 8MP wide-angle front camera and a 12MP rear camera.
