The Pixel 3a was also recently leaked on Google's own website.

The Google online store now has a teaser that says something new is coming on May 7. Separately, Google has released a one-minute commercial that shows the Pixel 3 as the saviour for the New Yorkers who have been attacked by various villains of Marvel's Avengers series.

We have heard quite a lot about both devices in the last few months, with leaks suggesting the duo will look very similar to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL but will likely get some toned down internals, feature plastic on the rear, instead of glass at n affordable price point. 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).

The teased launch date of the Pixel 3a models is notably in line with Google I/O 2019 that will begin on May 7. Google's teaser seems to indicate that new Pixel hardware will be launched at the event. Rumors have said the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL could launch at Verizon this spring. A short time later, the listings were taken down, leaving us wondering when Google might announce the mid-tier additions to the Pixel lineup. Many people still prefer to buy their phones directly from their carrier, so T-Mobile launching the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL could make Google's flagship phones an option for many more T-Mo customers.
