In just a matter of days, Google will be taking the stage at its I/O developer conference to talk about all of its latest work with things like Android Q and Google Assistant. Among these software-related announcements, this is also where we expect to learn all about the heavily-rumored Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.

These two phones will be mid-range versions of the regular Pixel 3 and 3 XL that launched back in October, and while that's certainly an interesting idea, it's also an odd move for Google to make being just a few months away from when we anticipate the Pixel 4 series to debut.

Taking a look at the AC forums, it appears that interest is pretty mixed for the Pixel 3a.

With the Pixel 2 XL now only costing 380 pounds (the Pixel 2 is even cheaper) I doubt many people will buy the 3a series if the rumours of a $400-$500 price are true. The Pixel 2 XL has a similar design and the P2 series has a better camera, build, chipset and a similar battery.

I would rather have a One Plus phone at those prices better bang for the money, they should priced them 350 and 450 that would be ideal to win in that market , I dont think it will sell good and plus discounts on their premium phones 3 and 3xl . I rather have a used 2xl

I'm interested in seeing what it's all about and will gladly follow its release and keep an eye out for it... But I don't think I will buy from the line.

I don't like straight Android. I like the extra features Samsung and LG add. I don't care about updates. The only attraction Pixel holds for me is the camera software. All of the pixels offer less bang for the buck spec wise and software wise.
