Google Teases New Pixel Device Announcement for May 7

Google Pixel teaser

A new Pixel device from Google appears to be on the way. On Monday, the company released a teaser for the upcoming product amid rumors that it’s developed a “Lite” version of the Pixel smarpthones.

“On May 7, meet a new hero,” reads the teaser on the official Google Store, which leads to another page labeled with the cryptic words: “Help is on the way.”

The teaser arrives as the tech media has been spotting hints that Google is preparing to release a mid-range version of its flagship smartphones called the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL. Earlier this month, Google’s own official store was briefly updated with a link to a Pixel 3a device before it was taken down.

The current Pixel 3 and 3 XL start at $799 and $899, respectively. So a mid-range version might appeal to more consumers, especially at a time when some flagship smartphones are reaching $1000 or more in price.

Google is also reportedly preparing to expand Pixel sales in the US. On Monday, 9To5Google reported that Verizon might no longer be Google’s exclusive carrier partner for Pixel smartphones; going forward, T-Mobile will begin offering them too.

Unfortunately, today’s teaser page from Google doesn’t reveal much else about the upcoming Pixel device. (The rest of the teaser page features a Google tie-in to promote the upcoming Hollywood blockbuster Avengers: Endgame. Hence the hero reference. ) However, past leaks have indicated that the rumored Pixel 3a might arrive with a 5.6-inch OLED Display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset, and 4GB of RAM. The larger Pixel 3a XL, on the other hand, will feature a 6-inch display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset.

May 7 will mark the first day of the company’s annual developer conference, Google I/O. Stay tuned for our coverage of the event.
