Google Pixel 3 And Pixel 3a Could Be Available At T-Mobile Soon


T-Mobile is said to start selling the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in the foreseeable future, including the yet-to-be-launched Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, and even the Pixel 4.

In the United States, these phones made by Google have been exclusive to Verizon or the Google Store for the unlocked variant since 2016. Now there's a chance they're making their way to the magenta carrier soon enough.

T-Mobile To Carry Pixel Phones

Citing "a trusted source," 9to5Google reports that T-Mobile is preparing to add the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to its lineup. For those who don't know, the unlocked version of the phones has always been compatible with T-Mobile's network, but they haven't been available directly from the carrier itself.

The news outlet also continues to say that T-Mobile has started testing out the Pixel 3a and its compatibility with its network. This is more or less expected considering that the previous Pixel devices have been supported, after all.

In addition, Android Police backs up these claims, saying that an independent source contacted it and said that T-Mobile will indeed start selling the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL down the road. Its source also mentioned that both the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are part of the carrier's plans.

New Pixel Phones

The Pixel 3a Pixel 3a XL are Google's upcoming midrange offerings, and the company itself even let the cat out of the bag recently via a leak on Google Play.

If the rumors turn out to be true, then the Pixel 3a will sport a 5.6-inch OLED display (2,220 x 1,080), an eight-megapixel camera on the front, and a 12-megapixel main camera. Under the hood, it'll have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670, 4 GB of RAM, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It'll run on Android 9 Pie out of the box too.

On the other hand, the Pixel 3a XL will have a 6-inch display (2,160 x 1,080) and 4 GB of RAM. It'll be powered by Android 9 Pie from the get-go as well.

As for the next-generation Pixel, a photo that's said to be of the Pixel 4 XL got leaked not long ago. If it's the real deal, it'll have a pill-shaped cutout similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, and it might feature an under-display fingerprint reader.
