Google's new Pixel 3a (and 3a XL)

So, after today's Google I/O announcement, we heard about the new Pixel 3a line up.

An economical variant of the Pixel 3 lineup.


The device will come at a bit of a compromise on specs to save you some dollars.  However, it still comes with that kickass Pixel camera!!

Check out a comparison of the specs below (or visit their site):

Essentially to save $350 you shave out Qi, the IP68 rating, downplay the processor a tad and dial back the resolution.

But, you do gain a wee bit more battery juice, and a headphone jack.

I'll have a bit of an opinion piece shortly!
