PSA: Clearing up confusion over Pixel 3a & 3a XL model number and SKUs

After bad information from RW customer service, I just want to add this to the forums for anyone else in the future. Some stores and web sites are mislabeling the Pixel 3a and 3a XL model numbers. Best Buy and Walmart in particular. Here’s what I found in case it helps anyone else.

Pixel 3a: RW supports the G020G model. Google’s SKU number on the box, is sometimes misused as the model number or part number. Here’s what they actually correspond to.

  • Pixel 3a, Just Black: Model - G020G; SKU - GA00655-US; UPC - 8 42776 11132 6.
  • Pixel 3a, Purple-ish: Model - G020G; SKU - GA00657-US; UPC - 8 42776 11144 9.
  • Pixel 3a, Clearly White: Model - G020G; SKU - GA00656-US; UPC - 8 42776 11156 2.

Pixel 3a XL: RW supports the G020C model. Google’s SKU number on the box, is sometimes misused as the model number or part number. Here’s what they actually correspond to.

  • Pixel 3a XL, Just Black: Model - G020C; SKU - GA00664-US; UPC - 8 42776 11097 8.
  • Pixel 3a XL, Purple-ish: Model - G020C; SKU - GA00666-US; UPC - 8 42776 11109 8.
  • Pixel 3a XL, Clearly White: Model - G020C; SKU - GA00665-US; UPC - 8 42776 11121 0.

Hope this helps.
