Google launches $399 Pixel phone, more U.S. carriers will sell it

The Google Pixel 3a Completely Redefines Great Bang for Your Buck

The Pixel 3 is priced at $79.99 down and $30 per month for 24 months ($799.99 FRP) and the Pixel 3 XL is $179.99 down and $30 per month for 24 months ($899.99 FRP).

Google's annual developer conference, I/O, has kicked off today.

The Pixel phones will not be available through JUMP! Other companies launch a second version more powerful than the earlier one; Google releases a less powerful version at half the price.

Google is now moving to close the gap.

Now, going one step further, to help you easily access the important options, now Google is going to let you simply tap on your profile photo in the Search app and see the most important settings in one step, including the newly launched data Auto-Delete setting.

This unfortunately means the device is not capable of wireless charging. However, it's still plastic, and it probably won't hold up as well as the Pixel 3.

US Secretary of State Pompeo visits Iraq amid Iran tensions
The State Department did not specify the objective of Pompeo's trip to Iraq, but it comes one day after the U.S. The visit to Iraq came after Pompeo canceled a planned visit to Berlin, citing "international security issues".

Google Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL will be available with T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon, and is available for purchase right now. Users can buy both Pixel devices starting today, either directly from Google or via your carrier of choice. "Getting into the market initially, it was better to do it in a focused way, but we've got to the point where we're ready to do it more broadly".

Google had discussions with AT&T, another major US carrier, but could not overcome some differences, according to people familiar with the matter.

Google's Queiroz declined to comment on talks with partners.

Camera wise, Google notes that the Pixel 3a's software can do what other companies (read: Apple) need advanced hardware to do. Other features of the smartphones haven't been confirmed by Google yet. All the camera features you love on the Pixel 3 such as Night Sight, Top Shot, HDR+, and Super Res Zoom are present on both devices. Google also promises three years of support, which should be more than enough to keep your phone safe.

Pixel 3a comes in two models; the standard Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL that tout the same features and specs apart from where variations in screen and battery size are concerned. "You don't want to upset your licensees but you have to go where the money is".

"It's not the absolutely bleeding edge technology", he said. "Our bet is that our software capabilities are better than our competitors".
