Less than a day after we reported on the possibility of the Google Pixel 3 XL Lite being a possibility, new information regarding a Google Pixel 3 Lite has emerged. Specifically, in the form of a video showing off what appears to be a pre-production unit of the phone in question.
The video comes by way of a Ukranian tech blog Andro News, which explains the Cyrillic text that you see on the phone. At a glance, the phone definitely looks a lot like its bigger brothers, albeit for a several difference.
Specs-wise, Andro News says that the phone is fitted with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC, 4GB RAM, and a internal storage capacity of 32GB. In terms of its camera, the pre-production Pixel 3 Lite sports a similar 12.2MP main camera, but apparently lacks an additional autofocus sensor.
There’s also the all-plastic body of the Pixel 3 Lite, which is in contrast to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL’s glass and metal bodies. Surprisingly, the phone actually sports a 3.5mm headphone jack; a port that Google chose to forego with the premium Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL models. Besides that, other specs of the phone include a 2915mAh battery, a 5.56-inch 18:9 Full HD+ display, and Android 9 Pie running straight out of the box.
Andro News says that the Google Pixel 3 Lite is expected to hit shelves in the US sometime in the spring this year, and “just after Google I/O”. Alas, just as it is with all Google Pixel smartphones, it’s unlikely that Google Malaysia will even be bringing this mid-range Pixel, let alone the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
