Google Pixel 3 Lite And Pixel 3 Lite XL
Adding weight to the rumors, according to sources of Android Police, the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will go on sale on Verizon in early spring 2019. Although, the pricing and announcement date are still unknown, but certain leaks suggest internal hardware of the smartphones.
As far as we know, the smartphones will pack in a 5.5″ screen, while the larger XL will have a 6″ display, powered by Snapdragon 670 or 710 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM, paired with 32GB of storage, fingerprint sensor, headphone jack. Talking about cameras, it will pack 12-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front cameras.
The phones might get the same camera optics as the original Pixel 3 series, but with substandard performance, and limited storage. Well, the Google Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will be the first smartphones from Google in the mid-range segment since the Nexus 5X. Given the original Pixel pricing, it wouldn’t be surprising, if the Lite variants sit in the $400-500 price range.
