Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a form Google’s current smartphone lineup – the former is positioned as a premium handset while the latter is more affordable but makes a number of notable compromises.
The biggest differences between the duo concern build and performance – the Pixel 3 is made of glass and aluminium while the cheaper Pixel 3a boasts a plastic body.
Moreover, the Pixel 3 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor while the 3a has the manufacturer’s Snapdragon 670 chipset housed under its hood.
The biggest appeal of Google’s Pixel devices has always been its camera and software though – luckily the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a are very similar in this regard.
Both devices come with a single 12.2-megapixel camera on their rear that takes some of the best photos on a smartphone right now.
Moreover, the pair also run Google’s version of Android and are always first in line to receive new operating system updates.
Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a are extremely appealing for everything they get right – however Google is making them even more tempting with a new sale.
The firm has slashed the price of the Pixel 3a by £50 and the regular Pixel 3 by £125.
The latest sale for the Pixel 3 comes ahead of a major announcement from Google – the American tech giant is expected to announce the release of its newest version of Android, Q, any day now.
Google released the sixth and final Android Q beta on August 7 and is anticipated to launch a final build later this month.
All Pixel devices are expected to get the new software as soon as it debuts.
Android Q brings a number of substantial changes to the established operating system – these include improved notifications, new permissions and a fresh method of gestural navigation.
