Google launched its latest smartphones the Pixel 3a and 3a XL at its Google I/O event on 7 May – watch the livestream recording here.

The mid-range phones cost £399/US$399 for the 3a and £469/US$479 for the 3a XL, which is much cheaper than the Pixel 3 and 3 XL phones, which cost £739/$799 and £869/$899, respectively. See our full comparison here, as well as our hands-on reviews for the 3a and 3a XL.

If you're looking to pick up a new Pixel 3a and 3a XL, you can find the best deals here.

Despite the lower price, you still get the rear camera from the premium range, which is rare for mid-range phones. You also get a 5.8in screen on the 3a and 6in screen on the 3a XL, which you'll want to keep safe from damage.
