The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 Lite have been rumoured for quite some time now. The devices were meant to bring the Pixel experience in a much more budget oriented fashion to enthusiasts. And while a lot of information about the device was leaked, nothing surfaced about its released date or arrival.
On leaks, however, has come up with 5K renders of the Pixel 3 Lite and the Pixel 3 Lite XL. The 360 degree renders apart from the geometrical integrity of the Pixel Lite reveal key internals of the phone and the basic features the phone is expected to host. Right off the first glance, we notice the fact that not much is different amongst the Pixel 3 Lite and Lite XL in terms of specifications.
The XL offers a bigger display with a bigger form factor while housing almost the same internals. Staying true to the Pixel theme, both the devices carry the Pixel 3 vibes and neither one hosts any sort of a notch. This shows that Google’s approach has been different. The brand tries to not shrink bezels and imply notches in order to maximize screen real estate but instead addresses the matter at hand. The Pixel 3 Lite is to house a 5.5″ -inch HD+ display while the XL variant would feature a 6” -inch panel.
Both the phones would house a rear capacitive fingerprint scanner like its predecessors and the camera orientation is an exact replica as well. Both the phones are to feature the colour textured power button with a 3.1 mm headphone jack. As for the pricing and availability, the leak suggests that the phone is to make its way into the mainstream next month with a starting price of $500. The pricing here seems unorthodox especially when we consider the fact that the full-fledged Pixel 3 has been going on sale for as low as $700. Moreover, the competition is undoubtedly tough with phones like OnePlus 7 ready to take on the Pixel Lite.
