Buying Google's Pixel phones has always been harder than it needed to be in the US. 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.

The teaser poster (seen above) can be found on the Google Store right here, which also says that "On May 7, meet a new hero". It shows people using Pixel devices to capture the superheroes and the characters themselves asking Google for help. It will reportedly ship with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor and likely match other features you'd find in the Pixel 3a. Over the past few months, we have come across leaks surrounding affordable Pixel smartphones - Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.

The Pixel 3a was also recently leaked on Google's own website.

'Game of Thrones' Season 8, Episode 2 Trailer Brings Death to Winterfell
Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) arrives in Winterfell , and all is well and good for approximately 30 sweet seconds. Unsurprisingly, the news did not sit well with Jon and he refused to accept he is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne .

The new feature, part of the newest update to the Google Camera app, is part of the Pixel 3's Photobooth mode. The bigger Pixel 3a XL codenamed Bonito could have a price of CAD $799 or $600. Bafflingly, it seems the squeezable "Active Edge" technology, which lets users summon Google Assistant by firmly gripping the side of their smartphone will be returning on the more affordable variant.

Defeating Thanos, meanwhile, will take more than Pixel 3a phones. However, we wouldn't be surprised to see a similar price differential, percentage-wise, to the one between the iPhone XS (£999) and iPhone XR (£749). This means that Google will break the Verizon exclusivity streak that's been going on forever.
