We saw Google unveiling its 2018 flagships in the beginning of October, but rumors are pointing to Lite variants that are bound to arrive any time soon. OnLeaks and 91mobile released their usual 3D CAD-based renders, suggesting what the final design of the phones could be.
The most prominent feature is the return of the 3.5 mm audio jack which was omitted back in 2017 with the Pixel 2 series.
The Google Pixel 3 Lite will have the same 5.5” screen like the actual Pixel 3 smartphone. The new device will be 151.3 x 70 x 8.2 mm big, with the thickness jumping to 9 mm with the camera bump. The screen will be with HD+ resolution and 18.5:9 tall ratio.
Early rumors suggested Snapdragon 670 and 4 GB RAM, while the cameras will be 12 MP on the back and 8 MP on the front. Other eventual specs are 32/64 GB storage options, 2,915 mAh battery and of course, Android Pie out of the box.
The Pixel 3 Lite XL is different than the current Pixel 3 XL by having an actual top bezel, instead of an obscure-looking notch. This will shrink the screen from 6.3” to 6” in diagonal, but the size of the device will be 160 x 76.1 x 8.2 mm. The screen will be the same as the smaller Pixel 3 Lite - Full HD+ resolution and tall ratio.
The rumor mill has been quiet on actual XL specs, but we expect either the same chipset or the slightly more powerful Snapdragon 710, with camera and storage variants remaining the same. Of course, the battery should grow in size, but these devices are said to come with polycarbonate back panels, meaning no wireless charging and no Pixel Stand compatibility.
Not likely... I am hoping 599 but Expect it cost more...
I just hope the picture quality is the same as on the pixel 3. That could be a killer move and usp.
The A9 cost like Â€500 and this should be better in everything else except storage so hopefully it'll cost below that
