Before this, the Google Pixel 3a XL had resurfaced, speculated to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 octa-core chipset with 4 GB of RAM. The latest Google Pixel 3a listing, reported by MySmartPrice, points to the device running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset. Although the chipset isn't mentioned, the Pixel 3a’s low score suggests a chipset lower than the Pixel 3a XL. The listing also mentions that the device is running on Android Pie 9 and that the phone has 4 GB of RAM.

Earlier, it was believed to be called the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite, however, it was reported that they will follow the ‘3a’ naming scheme before Google accidentally revealed it on its store along with some of the specifications.

The Pixel 3a will be coming out in two variants – Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. The Pixel 3a will sport a 5.6-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670.
