Google Pixel and OnePlus smartphones are catching up and giving stiff competition to Samsung in the USA as over one-third of users who bought the Pixel 3 and the OnePlus 6T during the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2018 previously owned Samsung, said a new report by Counterpoint Research. If Google delivers a camera performance similar to the flagship Pixel smartphones then the Pixel 3A family of smartphones would be a great mid-range device. The devices are referred to as "Coral" and "Needlefish".

While not exactly leaders in the U.S. market, it's important to note that the Google Pixel 3 accounted for 7.3% of all Verizon sales during the final quarter of 2018 while the OnePlus 6T captured 2.4% of T-Mobile's total sales. Now, the Pixel 3a duo has leaked again through case renders, giving us an idea about the design of both the handsets.

As for the Pixel 4, apart from being tested with a Snapdragon 855 in the Geekbench benchmark, it was also revealed that the device was sporting 6GB RAM of RAM.

Samsung users accounting for 31% of all Pixel 3 buyers were coming from the Galaxy S7, a device which Samsung launched two years ago. That said, the Pixel 3A would sport a 5.6-inch Full-HD+ display with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels. Both the smartphones will run Android 9 Pie out of the box.

While the Pixel 3A XL would have a larger 6-inch Full-HD+ display with a resolution of 2,220 x 1080 pixels. It is expected to house a Snapdragon 670 CPU.
