However, the latest report claims to leak the codenames of both the Pixel 4 variants (by which, it sort of confirms the phones too), and also a mysterious third device. The bezels seem to be reminiscent of those on Sony's 2018 and older smartphones with large chunks on both the top and the bottom. We are coming up on the end of guaranteed updates for the Pixel XL.

Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL recently appeared on Google Play Console with a few of their specifications.

Google launched the first Pixel phones in 2016, and these are still pretty capable phones to this day.

As per reports, the injury looked like a hamstring injury, which takes at least four to six weeks to recover. That doubled in the next five overs, with Rahul attacking Alzarri Joseph and Gayle targeting Hardik Pandya .

However, there are specific noticeable changes such as the presence of a 3.5mm audio jack which has been omitted by Google since last two Pixel generations. The alleged case renders, which show the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL from all angles, depict a design that is quite similar to the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL pair. They will have the volume rocker and power button on their right, whereas the left side of the device has the SIM card slot.

Out of the six codenames, four are already known, which includes Marlin (Pixel XL), Wahoo (which a codename for both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL), Crosshatch (Pixel 3 XL), and Bonito (Pixel 3a XL). Now, we have received information about the company's upcoming flagship smartphones - Pixel 4 and Pixel 4a. The Geekbench listing hinted the device could be built around a Snapdragon 855 chipset, which is Qualcomm's leading processor. Unlike the 3a, the device might be powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC. The Pixel 3a XL, on the other hand, is said feature a taller 6-inch display with 1080 x 2220 pixels resolution.

Lastly, the speculated A40 device is expected to feature a 5.9 inch display, Exynos 7885 chip, 4GB of RAM and a 64GB expandable internal memory, 5MP and 16MP dual rear camera setup and 25MP selfie cam and a 3100mAh battery. As for the pricing the smaller Pixel 3A is expected to be priced for around $300. While a single camera setup might be a hard sell in 2019, Google's computational photography tech should more than make up for it.
