Leak season is in full effect for many upcoming phones, and two of the most leaked phones possibly of all time are gearing up for their debut next week. The Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL will be announced at I/O 2019 on May 7th, and today, we’re getting an early look at their packaging thanks to Brandon Lee of This is Tech Today.
Lee shared the above images of what appears to be the packaging for the Pixel 3a. As you can see, the box is meant for the new purple Pixel which Google will call “Purple-ish.” It’s a very Google-y color name that will slot right next to “Just Black” and “Clearly White.”
Interesting, Lee also quotes the sources who gave him the images when saying the Pixel 3a will start at $399 while the Pixel 3a XL will start at $479. These seem to be pretty reasonable price points, especially when you consider what you get. In case you don’t know what both phones pack, here’s a breakdown.
