Google has announced a new low cost version of its Pixel 3 handset, dubbed the Pixel 3a.
Available in two sizes – 5.6-inch and 6-inch XL model – the phone includes an OLED display, a 12.2 MP dual-pixel rear camera with night mode capable of shooting 4K video, a front 8 MP camera for selfies and video calling, and Augmented Reality Google Maps which uses the phone’s camera to help guide you to your destination.
The phone is also guaranteed three years of security and operating system updates from release, and includes a custom-built Titan M chip to help protect the user’s most sensitive data.

Those moving to Pixel for the first time will also be able to transfer photos, music and media quickly with the Quick Switch Adapter included in the box.
Sales of the original Pixel 3 were lower than anticipated thanks to its high price tag but the firm says the new model brings its best features to users at “a more accessible price” of $399 for the 5.6-inch model and $479 for the 6-inch model.
