Best Buy Puts Pixel 3a XL on Sale Before It's Even Announced

Google Pixel 3a leaks suggest $399 starting price

Pixel 3a XL Caught at Best Buy, Revealing Key Specs

Google LLC's annual I/O developer conference starts Tuesday, when it's expected that the Alphabet Inc. -owned search engine giant will launch a range of new midrange smartphones as well as new "internet of things" devices and a new version of Google Assistant.

Highly anticipated: All signs suggest Google is ready to launch cheaper versions of its Pixel 3 at Google I/O next week. Meanwhile, Google announced and launched a year ago Google Assistant, Google Lens, Google Duplex, Android 9 Pie officially, Google Home, etc. There was also the wildest feature of all: using Assistant to make restaurant reservations with Google Duplex. Going ahead, expect announcements regarding Android Q for wearable and folding devices. For connectivity, the Pixel 3a will have a single nano-SIM slot, eSIM support in select markets, a 3.5mm audio jack, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth 5.0+LE with support for AptX, AptX HD, and LDAC codecs. It also didn't include the phones' screen resolutions, but if a previous leak from Google turns out to be the real deal, the Pixel 3a will have a 2,220 x 1,080 display, while the Pixel 3a XL will have 2,160 x 1,080.

As a Nest product (and because it has a built-in camera), it's also very likely that the Hub Max will take on home security features that the camera-less Home Hub is simply incapable of. We don't know much about any those improvements, but Google's is in a fierce battle with rival Amazon Alexa.

Android Automotive OS was recently demoed running on Volvo Polestar 2, which will be the first vehicle to officially launch with the OS in tow.

Buffett also maintained that "we paid too much" for Kraft Heinz, which was created in a 2015 merger between Kraft Foods and H.J. Buffett told CNBC on Thursday that a money manager at Berkshire Hathaway has been buying shares in Amazon lately.

Google's sale started last month and will run until 7.59am tomorrow, May 7.

In the meantime, current Google Pixel 3 users can download the May update file relevant to their device from Google's developer site. Apart from that, there is not much information available about the upcoming home hub.

Here's a roundup of what to expect from this year's Google I/O.

Earlier this year at GDC, Google unveiled its cloud gaming service 'Stadia.' The company hasn't shared any critical details related to Google Stadia, so we are hoping it will do the same at the upcoming Google I/O 2019 event. Though this pricing could be for the bigger model, the company will also be retailing a 4GB RAM model along with 32GB internal space.
