Google Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL specifications and features

The Pixel 3a and 3a XL are pretty much the same, except for the larger screen on the 3a XL. The Pixel 3a has a 5.6-inch GOLED screen, while its older brother has a 6-inch screen and you can immediately notice the absence of the large, intrusive notch seen on the Pixel 3 XL. What this means is that there are thick and thick bezels at the top and bottom that transport you back to 2016.
