Google is supposedly planning to reveal a new Pixel device on May 7
We’re guessing the device will leak before then.
It’s that time of the year again. Google just announced it’s holding a special press event on May 7 where the company will supposedly be announcing a new Pixel device to the lineup. If rumors turn out to be true, we’ll likely see a couple of mid-range Pixel devices like the Pixel 3a XL in a matter of weeks.
Earlier reports suggest that both phones will feature last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor, a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. Surprisingly enough, it’s implied that both devices will include a headphone jack.
Other than that, most of the Pixel 3 features will turn up on the midrange version, including Active Edge squeezable sides, for when you really need Google Assistant, the Titan M security chip, eSIM support and 64GB of storage.
If rumors pan out and Google plans to release a mid-range Pixel, this will be the first time since 2016 that the company launches a smartphone for less than $600. If that’s the case, these things are going to sell like hotcakes. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m getting some serious Nexus vibes right now.
Either way, we’ll find out more on what Google has in store for us May 7.
