The Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL, the firm's low-end variants of the flagship Pixel phones have had their Canadian pricing leaked.

The teased launch date of the Pixel 3a models is notably in line with Google I/O 2019 that will begin on May 7.

Suggesting the launch date of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, the teaser on the Google Store says, "On May 7, meet a new hero". It is likely that Google will announce both devices at the conference. The company also shared a video ad showing how the Pixel helps the New Yorkers focus on their work, take a selfie with alien ships, and find their way around the city amidst all the chaos. However, we know there's only one thing that Google can unveil right now, the Pixel 3a series. Following that report, Android Police's own sources independently confirmed to them that T-Mobile will not only sell the Pixel 3 but the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL as well. The Pixel 3a (4GB+64GB) is expected to be priced at 649 CAD (roughly Rs 33,000) whereas the Pixel 3a XL with the same configuration will retail at 799 CAD (roughly Rs 41,500). Google's teaser seems to indicate that new Pixel hardware will be launched at the event.

There is also a message for Avengers fans out there, stating that "help is on the way", as probably more Marvel characters will be joining the lineup of augmented reality Playmoji available on the Pixel phones.
