New leak confirms Verizon will carry the Pixel 3a series

Posted May 07, 2019

The Google I/O event is scheduled for May 7, so we'll know the rest by then. There's a good chance that these are just a coincidence, though.

Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed on both of these phones, needless to say, and we're looking at stock Android here, as on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

As for the other two, they're listed down as "Google S4" and "Google B4". And the word is that the headphone jack is back - which I am sure a lot of people would appreciate. Google guarantees three years of operating system updates. The Titan M security chip and Active Edge features of the Pixel 3 will also make the jump to the Pixel 3a. The Nest Hub Max features a 10-inch screen and stereo speakers. While this is a price of the 6GB RAM model, Google is also expected to sell a 4GB RAM version with 32GB storage and we can expect the phone to sell for a cheaper price.

Four new measles cases reported in Pittsburgh
Adults who have only had one dose of the vaccine are still protected from the viral infection, but at a slightly lower rate. Adults with compromised immune systems unable to get the shot should ensure that family and close contacts get two doses.

TechRadar will be at Google IO and analyzing all the announcements, from hardware announcements to software upgrades, so stay tuned over the coming days for all our expert commentary.

By the way, these phones that we now may know nearly everything about seem set to make an appearance at Google's I/O 2019 keynote on May 7th, though at this point it seems kind of redundant.

Even though the spotted box had only referred to Canadian information, the AP's comment section apparently says that the Pixel 3s box has very much alike details and specifications. Hopefully, that will include a fresh beta release as well.

Facebook Bans Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, Other Far-Right Figures
In November, Ms Loomer handcuffed herself to a Twitter building in NY in protest at being banned from that platform. It just took a while to deliver these bans due to the "extensive" process of evaluating potential offenders.

More details are also expected on Google Stadia, a cloud gaming service powered by custom AMD chips first announced March 19. At I/O, Google is expected to give a detailed preview of the Android 10 Q. Also, the company could come with a fresh beta update for users. So, we are expecting the same for this year.

Google apparently chose to get its Wear OS news out of the way before I/O even begins this year.

There haven't been any other hints that Google has big plans to shake up or redesign Android TV this year. The phones were cool and all, but failed to make a dent in the market.
