Google I/O 2019 rumours: What to expect from biggest annual developer conference

08 May 2019

Google CEO Sundar Pichai and other executives will glance at the many features and improvements coming to Android, Google Assistant, and many other apps and services over the next year. Google's entry into streaming gaming is still planned for the end of 2019, at least in North America, but Google I/O will be the ideal arena to find out more on the specifics of the games and the launch.

From a form factor perspective, the Pixel 3a and 3 XL more closely resemble the 2017-era Pixel 2 handsets than they do the other Pixel 3 family members, with their large bezels and non-glass bodies. Yeah, Google CEO Sundar Pichai took center stage today during the keynote to take the veil off this mid-range Pixel smartphone, which we had been hearing about and waiting for many months now.

Google will kick off its annual developer conference, Google I/O, on May 7 and it will run till May 9. Additionally, the leaked picture also confirms that Pixel 3a XL would be shipped with Snapdragon 710 chipset, a bigger 6-inch FHD+ OLED display, 12.2MP rear camera and 8MP wide-angle sensor upfront. Just a few days ago, for instance, pricing plans for the 3a leaked and revealed that the 64GB versions of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will cost $399 and $479, respectively.

Positive Results for Arsenal and Chelsea in Europa League
Arsenal fought back and levelled on 18 minutes after Alexandre Lacazette tapped home Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's well-laid pass. Arsenal still have work to do with their awful away record this season likely to give Valencia plenty of encouragement.

After launching deals in recent years to entice customers to bring their unlocked Google Pixel onto T-Mobile's network, T-Mo is officially launching Pixel phones itself. The Pixel 3a will also have stereo speakers, a fingerprint scanner on the back, and support for Active Edge. "Pixel 3A is a more assertive step into a more affordable segment and crucially, is supported by far wider channel distribution". However, it still offers a 3.5mm headphone jack which has been omitted on the Pixel 3. It will have the Always-on Display and Always-listening features.

There's just one configuration of the mid-range Pixel 3a series, but it will be available in 3 color variants, namely Clearly White, Just Black, and Purple-ish.

That said, Google says it has managed to wrestle nearly the same camera performance from the Snapdragon 670 sans Pixel Visual Core using a mixture of Artificial Intelligence and software as the costlier Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL achieve with the flagship Qualcomm silicon. If you want to pull the trigger, you can order yours starting today either from your carrier or from Google. As someone who very quickly grew disappointed with last year's Pixels, I can honestly say the Pixel 3a XL has been worlds different where stability is concerned. They'll also include free unlimited high-quality photo storage on Google Photos.
