Is Verizon's Pixel 3 Exclusivity Coming to an End?

Is Verizon's Pixel 3 Exclusivity Coming to an End?

Despite the fact that all three generations of Google's Pixel phones have been compatible with T-Mobile, Verizon has been the only carrier to sell them in the U.S. That might soon be changing, though.

A teaser poster displayed on Google's own store page has revealed that "on May 7, something big is coming to the Pixel universe", which happens to coincide with the first day of the Google I/O conference.

In addition to Verizon, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been available direct from Google, so T-Mo customers interested in those phones haven't had an issue buying them.

This report comes from 9to5Google, which spoke to an unnamed "trusted source" that is familiar with T-Mobile's plans.

The Honor 20 series, OnePls 7 and even the Asus Zenfone 6 are all of interest to us, and now it appears Google is adding to the mix as indications have now emerged the Google Pixel 3A could launch in May. Now, an announcement teaser has been posted on the Google Store's website, potentially hinting at the launch of the two Pixel lite handsets. In US dollars, that's about $485 and the Pixel 3a XL will cost $600.

The Pixel 3a line is probably the most anticipated Google hardware since the original Pixel was rumored. The Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL, the firm's low-end variants of the flagship Pixel phones have had their Canadian pricing leaked.
