Soon, Google is going to announce its two newest Pixel-branded smartphones, the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. Ahead of that, though, the rumor mill is working to reveal the finer details, including just how much RAM at least one of the smartphones will feature.
MySmartPrice has the report out on Monday, following the leaked Geekbench scores for the upcoming Pixel 3a. As previously suggested, the data shows that the Pixel 3a will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor, which makes the handset fall below the line of a flagship. However, that doesn’t mean it will be a slouch.
According to the leaked Geekbench scores, the Pixel 3a has a single-core score of 1625, and a multi-core score of 5206. The data was reportedly uploaded on April 29 of this year, and shows the handset will be running Android 9 Pie out of the box, and feature 4GB of RAM.
Unfortunately there isn’t a lot else to go on here. We do have reason to believe that Google is going to take some time on May 7, when Google I/O kicks off, to unveil and talk about both the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. It’s rumored that both handsets will go on sale, presumably with Verizon (but maybe also T-Mobile!) soon after that. Pricing should be below what the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL cost, which may help both with adoption. Especially considering they both reportedly boast a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Do you plan on buying either one of the new Pixel smartphones?
