The Pixel 3a was arguably the best pixel of its generation, offering so much of what makes Pixel phones great – mostly camera and software – for a much cheaper price of $ 399. And although almost every rumor has hinted at $ 399 for Google’s budget phone so far, a rumor going around today suggests that the phone may be significantly cheaper than expected.
$ 349 for 128 GB. So it says Stephen Hall by 9to5Google, which suggests that Google will forego a 64GB option this time.
This is a bold statement when you consider that leaked marketing materials are always reliable Evan Blass had set the price straight at $ 399. If both rumors come from authentic sources, one can only imagine that after the announcement of the iPhone SE for $ 399, Google decided to lower the price.
At $ 399, the iPhone honestly seems to be a better deal. While both phones offer photographic functions similar to the main camera of their flagship siblings, the iPhone SE Likewise shares the same processor, ensuring similar performance for years to come.
The Pixel 4a, on the other hand, is expected to be equipped with a Snapdragon 765, which is a little less powerful than the Snapdragon 855 in the Pixel 4, let alone the 865 in newer models (and probably in the Pixel 5 of the fall). That questions longevity, but with $ 349 and twice as much storage space as the iPhone SE, it becomes much more attractive.
$ 50 may not sound like a lot, but in the mid-range price range, making a purchase may be enough. Given some of the recent internal upheavals within the Pixel team, Google probably wants to build as much momentum as possible before the Pixel 5 comes out later in the year.
