Google Pixel 3A Spotted On Geekbench
Google Pixel is a range of consumer electronic devices developed by Google that run either Android or Chrome operating system. Late last year, the company launched its third iterations of the Pixel smartphones in the form of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Soon after the launch of the devices, the internet was flooded with news about affordable variants of the same. Previously a hands-on video of an unreleased Google device, allegedly the Pixel 3 Lite was exposed online. Unfortunately, that device has not seen the light of the day till now. Another low specced variant of the Google Pixel 3, the Pixel 3A has been spotted on Geekbench revealing its key specifications.
The Geekbench listing was first uploaded on 10 February and it clearly specifies the name of the device which is Google Pixel 3A. The device packs the ‘MSM8953’ SoC which is the codename for Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC. The chipset comprises of an Adreno 506 GPU and an Octa-Core CPU which has the base frequency of 1.8 GHz.
In terms of memory, the Google Pixel 3A has 2 GB of RAM which is likely to be paired with 32 GB or 64 GB of inbuilt storage. Like past Pixel smartphones, the upcoming device is also assumed to miss out on the option for memory expansion via an external card. Noteworthy, the Google Pixel 3A gets a single-core score of 732 points and a multi-core score of 3184 points. Although the scores of the upcoming Google device seem unimpressive, it is noteworthy that Pixel smartphones run on vanilla Android and have no bloatware applications installed. Therefore, the device can work well in terms of real-world performance.
Sadly, Google has not yet announced the launch date of the Pixel 3A. It is plausible that the company unveils the smartphone at its upcoming Google I/O event which is scheduled for 7-9 May. Going by the specifications of the device, it is expected to be priced between the US $ 300-400 price bracket.
