Google Pixel 3a XL : Google का पहला बजट स्मार्टफोन इस साल मई महीने में भारत में 44,999 रुपये में लॉन्च किया गया था। अब इस फोन को 10,000 रुपये का डिस्काउंट मिला। अब इस फोन को सेल के दौरान 34,999 रुपये में खरीदा जा सकता है। इसके साथ ICICI बैंक के क्रेडिट कार्ड से डिस्काउंट भी ले सकते हैं। इसके साथ ही पुराने फोन को एक्सचेंज करने पर 11,850 रुपये तक का एक्सचेंज डिस्काउंट मिल रहा है।

Pixel 3 and 4 launched with own set of problems but the prospect of battery swelling is a big worry. Google is yet to comment on the matter but it’s high time they respond to over 60 users who’ve faced similar problems. It’s possible the swelling might have started long back, and users might have missed it because of using a case with the phone. Either ways, swelling usually indicates the battery unit is either becoming volatile, or not able to input the right amount power needed to charge.

Battery swelling is a serious safety hazard issue. And if Google doesn’t take care of it, chances are the phones might start exploding. And nobody wants the situation to get out of hand. Interestingly, some users have pointed out the battery of phones started swelling only after they wirelessly charged using the Pixel Stand. And many have also explained that since the battery swelling, the Pixel 3 and 4 units have stopped charging wirelessly. Could this be a problem with the charging stand instead of the phone? We’ll be keeping a close eye on this one. Also Read - Google Pixel 5, Pixel 4A 5G could launch on September 25
