Verizon's 3-year run of exclusivity over Google's Pixel phones may come to an end in the near future.

The teaser actually opens to a page which has a video of the Avengers: Infinity War battle in NY. And well, Google is not helping the cause but instead adding fuel to the fire with a teaser that reads "something big is coming to the Pixel universe" on May 7th.

Earlier this week, prices of the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL surfaced online.

That's because the phone doesn't just offer 5G support; it also sports a bigger screen and battery than the Galaxy S10 +. No information about pricing options emerged though, so we're still in the dark on that one.

Buying Google's Pixel phones has always been harder than it needed to be in the US. A short time later, the listings were taken down, leaving us wondering when Google might announce the mid-tier additions to the Pixel lineup. For those unaware, May 7 is the day when Google I/O 2019 (Google's annual developer conference) kicks-off and it now suggests that it could be the day when it debuts new hardware under the "Pixel branding" during the keynote announcement. No other details are given, so it's unclear when the launch might happen, but there is said to be some evidence that T-Mo is gearing up to sell the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Per sources from 9to5Google and Android Police, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will soon be sold on T-Mobile.

If reports are accurate, the Pixel 3a and 3a XL will look similar to the flagship Pixel 3 and 3 XL models, but with pricing that starts around $500 for the 3a model.
