Paired with the lengthy gap after the original launch of the Pixel 3 series, it sure seems like something came up that stopped the 3a from getting out to market as quickly as Google originally planned. The Pixel 3a, with a 14.2 centimetre screen, comes in at $399 (Dh1,466) and Pixel 3a XL, with 15.2cm screen, for $479. There's actually two variants, the Pixel 3a and the 3a XL, but I chose to go for the smaller variant this time because at $399, I think this is the phone you should care about.
Theres no word on further availability for now but we can expect Maps AR to come to more, non-Pixel devices soon.
Today Google introduces a more affordable smartphone with the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. From "Hands Free Driving Mode", to finally being able to shut off your alarm by just saying "STOP" (a simple, but immensely satisfying addition), to being able to recommend what you should eat at a restaurant by using "Google Lens" to read menus, and filling online forms using just a voice command - Google Assistant knows a lot about you, and can do a lot more for you now.
Google will be giving more weight to the most recent reviews in determining app star ratings.

Deepika Padukone looks straight out of a fairytale at Met Gala 2019
Today morning was a visual treat for us as Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra made a rocking appearance at MET Gala 2019 . However, on the work front, Deepika is now filming for Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak which is slated to release in January 2020.
The new "lite" versions of Google Pixel 3 follows the same design cues as their elder siblings and similar camera setup which stand out in the Pixel lineup. Other hardware specifications of the device include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, USB-C USB 2.0, 3.5mm audio jack, stereo speakers, and 3000mAh battery with 18W fast charging. On the front, the device has an 8MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture for selfies, equipped with a fixed focus and 84° field of view. For the average user, this change probably won't make or break a purchase.
The only feature on the Pixel 3 that isn't on the 3a is Group Selfie Cam. If you're not the sort of person who takes selfies, and doubly so when it comes to group selfies, you'll probably not miss this feature. However, it's still plastic, and it probably won't hold up as well as the Pixel 3. For some users, that'll really, truly make or break the sale - I am one of those people.
Google announced new lower-priced smartphones in a bid to push its consumer hardware business, after sales of its existing Pixel line nosedived in the first quarter.
