Remember the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL? Well, apparently they're not called that anymore.

Google's rumoured mid-range Pixel 3 phones have been expected for months. These devices are being dubbed the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL, though they have also been known as Sargo and Bonito. The 3 Lite XL also appeared on Geekbench under the name 3a Lite XL, but we weren't convinced that would be the final name. Now, we're learning a pair of new names, which seem to be a combination of past rumours.

Both XDA and 9to5Google claimed the phones are called Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. XDA first spotted the names in an Android Q file, and 9to5Google claimed a source has verified those will be the names of Google’s new phones. 9to5Google also confirmed some specs: They will have 5.6-inch and 6-inch displays, Active Edge squeezable sides, the Titan M security chip, eSIM, and 64GB of storage.

The Pixel 3a, specifically, should have an OLED with a resolution of 2220×1080 at 440dpi. It might also feature a Snapdragon 670, 4GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel wide-angle front camera, a 12-megapixel rear camera, and a 3,000mAh battery. Both phones might come in Clearly White and Just Black and possibly a third colour. And that's all the new, or supposedly confirmed information, we could glean from these latest reports.

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
