The store page also has a tagline help is on the way which alludes to Avengers: Endgame, where five new superheros are joining the Playmoji AR line-up, and will be available exclusively on Pixel phones via Playground.

The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL recently cleared IMDA certification. We have also come across leaked specifications and expected pricing of the smartphones. The Pixel 3a could feature a 5.6-inch display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels, whereas the Pixel 3a XL could pack a 6.0-inch display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels. The Pixel 3a could come equipped with Snapdragon 670 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and is likely to ship with Android 9 Pie OS. The Pixel 3a XL, on the other hand, is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 CPU.

Coming to pricing, the Pixel 3a could be priced at CAD $649 (approximately Rs 33,900), whereas the Pixel 3a XL could be priced at CAD $799 (approximately Rs 41,500). It remains to be seen how the final pricing turns out to be. Also, the smartphones will be targeted towards markets such as India, and some Asian countries, so it remains to be seen if Google can go aggressive.
