It's been months since rumours of a mid-range Pixel 3A series began, and they haven't stopped since. However, for the first time, Google SVP has somewhat hinted at the new phones, and we wonder if the devices will go official soon!
In a Twitter post on Tuesday, Google senior vice president, Hiroshi Lockheimer, shared information on his visit to the Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard office from the 60s (HP printers?). In the tweet, he left a rather broad hint, "I took pictures with an unreleased phone so I probably shouldn't share them here. "
I got to see Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard's office from the 60s yesterday, it was super cool! But...
I took pictures with an unreleased phone so I probably shouldn't share them here.
The offices looked like this ⬇️ https://t.co/fPE7um3gyv

He didn't share any sample image clicked from the phone, for obvious reason, but this little hint leads us to hope that the Pixel 3A is coming soon.
Now, it's unlikely that the Pixel 4 series is already being teased, because the flagship Pixel series is traditionally launched in October every year.
Google Pixel 3A, Pixel 3A XL expected specifications and features
The Google Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL are believed to come in three colour options — black, white, and Iris. Further, recent reports suggest that new mid-range Pixel phones will feature 64 GB of internal storage, as opposed to the previously reported 32 GB of storage.
In addition to that, the report also suggests that the Pixel 3A phones will not be cheap, though an estimated price was not given. From what we have heard so far, the phones will be priced in the Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000 segment.
While that's the extent of what is revealed in the leak, from what we know, the larger Pixel 3A XL will feature a 5.6-inch OLED display whereas the Pixel 3A XL will sport a 6-inch one. Under the hood, the smartphones will be powered by a Snapdragon 670 SoC, coupled with 4 GB of RAM. As for cameras, it is believed to come with 12 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera. Fueling the Pixel 3A will likely be a 3,000 mAh battery.
