These new devices are expected to be Google’s new mid-range phones and are reported to be named as Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. The new mid-rangers will likely offer the same camera features from last year’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL but with some limited hardware.
A Snapdragon 670 powered mid-range Pixel device was leaked last year with the plastic build quality. The battery of the phone was reported to be 2915 mAh with 4GB of RAM, but these specifications are yet to be confirmed officially. If these rumors about these devices are correct, then the expected price of these mid-range phones might start from $400 to $500.
“Help is on the way.” tagline is prominent on the Google Store’s page along with the announcement of exclusive Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame Playmoji. These augmented reality Playmojis are available exclusively for Google Pixel phones in Playground app.
Google partnered up with Marvel to add five new characters to its Playmoji collection in Pixel. The characters include Thor, Captain Marvel, War Machine, Black Widow and Rocket. You can interact, take photos and videos with the characters through Pixel's camera. The Avengers Playmoji Pack is available on Google Play Store.
