Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are expected to go official today at Google I/O 2019, but the leaks simply cease to stop.

During I/O, Google is expected to discuss improvements to Assistant, the virtual personal assistant it bundles in smart home devices. The report also mentions that both the lite Pixel devices would have Google's Night Sight found on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

In terms of horsepower the Pixel 3a packs an Octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and a 3,000 mAh battery.

With the keynote just a few short days away and Google teasing that there will be hardware announced on stage, we wonder if there are any surprises left for the presentation? Per the poster, the Pixel 3a XL will feature a 6-inch FHD+ display, a 12.2 MP rear camera and an 8 MP sensor for selfies.

Google will probably also unveil a range of new features and changes to its Google Suite of apps, which it recently discontinued a load of, so perhaps we'll see some of the features in the old apps added to the newer ones. This was unveiled at the game developers conference in March this year.

Unfortunately, there's no additional details around what these updates could entail, but it seems likely that we'll a new smart speaker from Google.

At the Stadia announcement event, Google disclosed nearly everything about their new streaming service but promised to dole out more details in the future, including how the developers can bring their games to the platform and what it would cost to play titles on your browser.

In addition, there are a number of other operating systems, apps, and features that the company could shed light upon at its developer conference. Android Q is likely to bring support for foldable devices, "bubbles" like Facebook messenger for multi-tasking, system-wide dark mode and improved privacy and device security features. The tech giant is said to be launching these two devices on May 7th, in the United States as it is the start day of the company's 2019 I/O event. We don't know yet how much Google might charge for its alternative. And it's a software event first rather than a hardware one. Lets take a look at what the smaller Pixel 3a has to offer.
