Google Just Confirmed The Pixel 3a and the Nest Hub Max

Posted on April 6, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Google, Hardware with 2 Comments

It’s no secret Google is going to launch a new mid-range Pixel 3 device. The company’s new devices have been leaked a lot recently, and it seems like Google is nearing the launch of the new devices.

The company recently rolled out a redesigned navigation for the Google Store, and with that, it mistakenly confirmed some of its upcoming devices. That includes the new Pixel 3a, as well as the new Google Nest Hub and Google Nest Hub Max.

This is technically the first time Google has confirmed the official branding of the device, which is also expected to have a larger variant. The regular device, codenamed Bonito, comes with a 5.6-inch display, Snapdragon 670 processor, 12MP rear camera, 4GB of RAM, and a 3,000mAh battery. The larger Pixel 3a XL, codenamed Sargo, comes with a 6-inch display, and almost the same specs as the regular Pixel 3a. Both the devices will also come with 18-watt fast charging, Active Edge squeezable sides, eSIM capabilities, and Google’s Titan security chipset.

Google is also introducing a rebrand of its Home Hub smart display. The device will now be called the Google Nest Hub, with a new Nest Hub Max variant coming out as well. The new Nest Hub Max apparently features a 10-inch HD screen with stereo speakers, and a built-in Nest Cam that can get motion and sound alerts, reports 9to5Google.

Google was obviously quick to pull these pages as soon as they were leaked, but this is not the first time a Made By Google product has leaked so many times before launch. It’s still not clear when Google plans to launch these devices, though I feel like we could see a potential launch at its I/O developer conference in May.

    Paul - will you be trying these devices or have you sworn off Pixel devices for good?

    The most interesting detail that leaked this morning was that the phones were listed as “midyear experiences,” suggesting we wouldn’t have to wait until Google’s traditional October launch window for Pixel devices, but might see them as soon as this summer, even possibly at Google’s I/O developer conference in May. ttrockstar
