Earlier this year, the latest Pixel 3 smartphones on Google were downloaded repeatedly before their official announcement in October, and it seems like the story is already being repeated with a new mid-range model known as Pixel 3 Lite. With less powerful specs and expected cheaper cost than the standard Pixel 3, the new Pixel 3 Lite was spotted for the first time more than a week ago, with further details. Now we have another look at the unpublished device in the wild, this time to its pixel 3 brother.
First published by the Russian user on Twitter @jc_ru, the new photo makes the differences between Pixel 3 and Lite immediately clear. As shown on the left, the Pixel 3 Lite has a higher 5.56-inch display with an 18.5: 9 aspect ratio compared to Pixel 3 (right) with a 5.5-inch screen and an 18: 9 aspect ratio.
It is reported that codenamed "Sargo", Pixel 3 Lite has been revealed that it uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Although this is a slower chip than Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, Lite shares a surprising number of specifications with its siblings that make it attractive, if not more, to many Android users.
First, like the standard Pixel 3, Lite does not use a tooth on the display. It also has the same 12.2 megapixel camera at the back, with Pixel 3, which means it has medium range or not, has some of the best options for smartphone photography. Pixel 3 Lite also takes the same 2915 mAh battery from Pixel 3, but the real gem is this: Lite has a headphone jack. In addition to the differences in processors, the only other real drawback is that the unreleased devices remove the double lens setting on the front camera.
With the increase in Pixel 3 Lite leaks and observations, it is likely that Google's official announcement is coming quickly. There was no word about pricing or launching the device, but the real question at this point is whether Lite will be available on all markets along with Pixel 3 and 3 XL or if it is designed for specific regions only.
