It is no secret that Google is working on new ‘Lite’ series of their Google Pixel devices – thanks to early leaks on the web. It is already known that these are trimmed versions of the Pixel 3 devices, which were launched last year in October. These Lite devices are catered to mid-range device segment in the smartphone industry. That said, there’s been a new video surfaced on YouTube that showcases the hands-on of the alleged Google Pixel 3 Lite smartphone and more details of its launch have also been revealed.
According to the video, which comes from a Ukranian tech news page called Andro-news, reveals the detailed specifications of the upcoming Google Pixel 3 Lite smartphone along with its hands-on experience as well. The video showcases Pixel 3 lite’s design, which resembles the high-end Pixel 3, but, in an all-round plastic build. Unlike, the Pixel 3 devices, the Pixel 3 Lite doesn’t have the ugly notch and also features the conventional 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
Moreover, the reviewer in the video confirms that the Pixel 3 Lite camera can also capture excellent photos with the single camera lens on the rear, similar to Pixel 3. Further talking of the cameras, the Pixel 3 Lite features a 12.2MP rear camera with an aperture of f/1.8, and unlike the Pixel 3, the Lite version has only one 8MP front-facing camera instead of two.
The other prominent specifications of the Google Pixel 3 Lite smartphone include – a 5.56-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Under the hood, the Pixel 3 Lite is powered by Snapdragon’s 10nm 670 SoC paired with Adreno 615 GPU. Regarding storage, the Pixel 3 Lite comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. A 2915mAh battery powers the phone and since its a Google phone, needless to say, it ships with Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box.
And lastly, the video suggests that the Lite version of Pixel 3 devices (there’s apparently a larger Pixel 3XL Lite version as well, which is supposedly powered by SD 710 SoC) will most likely be launched after the Google’s I/O event this year. Since these Lite Pixel phones come with impressive specifications and also the headphone jack, it would be interesting to see how they perform and compete against the most competitive price segment (mid-range) when they launch in India.
