Google has all-but-confirmed that the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will launch on May 7 during the first day of Google I/O 2019. Now, Indian e-tailer Flipkart is hinting that the two long-rumored Pixel “Lite” phones will debut in the region a day later on May 8.

A teaser surfaced today on Flipkart’s website, accompanied by the same “help is on the way” tagline we’ve been seeing on the Google Store for a few weeks now.

This new arrival in the “Pixel universe,” is almost certainly a reference to the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL — a new affordable duo of Pixel phones that reportedly packs the same stellar camera as the regular Pixel 3 series.

Flipkart’s countdown page isn’t the only Pixel-related hint, as another teaser (via FoneArena), carries the Google logo alongside the line “Losing sight after twilight.” This suggests the Pixel 3’s celebrated Night Sight camera mode will come to the 3a series for low light photos.

We’ll know more about the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL in just under a week, but if you can’t wait until then be sure to check out our comprehensive Pixel 3a rumor round-up.

All things considered, these “Lite” Pixels are shaping up to be impressive phones that could disrupt the mid-range market with their top-tier cameras. The only major question mark now is price.
