Starting today, Singaporeans can purchase the latest addition to the Pixel family, which promises everything you expect in a device for half the price of premium phones.
These days, you expect a lot from a smartphone. You want a premium camera that can take vivid, share-worthy photos wherever you go. You need a tool that connects you to the world with all your favourite apps and also helps out during the day. And you want a phone that has a battery that is reliable for long stretches, while it stays secure and up to date with the latest software. You also don’t want it to break the bank. That’s why, Google is introducing the new Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, which are all of those things and more, for half the price of premium phones.
Pixel 3a is designed to fit nicely in your hand, and includes an OLED display for crisp images and bright colours. Starting today, users in Singapore will also be one of the first globally to get their hands on both new devices through carrier partner Singtel, retailers COURTS and Challenger and the Google Store. The phone will be available in two colours – Just Black and Clearly White – and two sizes, in Singapore at $659 for the 5.6-inch display and $779 for the 6-inch model.
“Singaporeans are always on the lookout for a good and helpful smartphone to enhance the way they live, work and play. Following the positive response for the Pixel 3 during its launch in October last year, we are excited to extend the Pixel experience to even more people, working with our partners to offer the best of Google’s features and functionality for a price considerably less than premium phones,” said Martin Geh, Managing Director, APAC Hardware Partnerships at Google.
Uncompromised features and performance
Google Pixel 3a delivers what you’d expect from a premium device. Starting with the award-winning camera, Pixel 3a lets you take stunning photos using Google’s HDR+ technology with features such as Portrait Mode, Super Res Zoom, and Night Sight to capture clear shots in low light. Google Photos is built in, so you can save all your high-quality photos and videos with free, unlimited storage. It comes with an 18-watt charger so you get up to seven hours of battery life on a 15-minute charge and up to 30 hours on a full charge , and with the Google Assistant you can send texts, get directions, and set reminders – using only your voice.
We’ll make sure your Pixel 3a is protected against new threats, by providing three years of security and operating system updates. In a recent industry report, Pixel was rated the highest for built-in security among all smartphones. It also comes with the custom-built Titan M chip to help protect your most sensitive data.
New features at a more accessible price
Pixel makes it easy to use Google apps like YouTube, Google Photos and Gmail. And you’ll get access to new features first. Pixel 3a and the entire Pixel portfolio will get a preview of AR in Google Maps, so the next time you’re getting around town, you can see walking directions overlaid on the world itself, rather than looking at a blue dot on a map.. This helps you know precisely where you are, and exactly which way to start walking (in areas covered on Street View where there’s a good data connection and good lighting).
Time lapse is coming to Google Pixel 3a, so you can capture an entire sunset in just a few seconds of video—great for posting on social media or messaging to your friends.
Switch to a Pixel and keep everything you love
If you’re new to Pixel, you can transfer photos, music, and media quickly with the included Quick Switch Adapter. If you need a little extra help, 24/7 support from Google is just a tap away in the tips and support link in the settings menu. You can even share your screen for guided assistance.
Look for Pixel 3a in the Google Store and through our partners beginning today.
