Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XLwere recently leaked with the codenames "sargo" and "bonito" respectively.

The teaser follows a raft of rumours around the launch of a new mid-range version of the Pixel, purportedly branded Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, as well as the forthcoming successor, dubbed Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

A new teaser on the Made By Google website suggests that the Pixel 3a midmarket handset will launch on May 7. But Google has to show us something now, and a glorified advert for Avengers: Endgame is one way to do it.

There's no way to be sure any of this is true, however, and we'll just have to wait until 7th May to find out what Google has in store for us.

Tesla Falls Midday as Musk Tweets Production Forecasts
In the March quarter, Tesla delivered 63,000 vehicles, down from 90,966 in the final three months of 2018. Last September, the SEC sued Musk for a separate tweet on August 7 in which he said Tesla had.


Starting with the first Pixel in 2016 and continuing with the Pixel 3 series previous year, Google's smartphones have been sold exclusively on Verizon (and Google Fi if you want to count that) in the United States.

The term universe ties in nicely with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as does the tagline "Help is on the way". With these handsets, Google looks set to bring the unadulterated Pixel camera, which, let's be honest, is easily the best thing about the Pixel smartphone range, to a slightly more affordable price point.

Defeating Thanos, meanwhile, will take more than Pixel 3a phones. The teaser links to a preview ad for the Pixel 3 lineup and Avengers: Endgame, a movie that won't be released until April 26. AR stickers are, of course, the complete opposite of "big". Google is simply teasing the public but we all know what the launch is all about-the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL.
