Google source confirms Pixel 3 and 3 XL Lite release

Source: Google will launch the Pixel 3 and 3 XL

These devices are to release with Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite monikers.

According to a new report by Android Police, Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite will be announced for Verizon in "early spring" next year hinting to an April-May launch.

Personally, the launch of a midrange Pixel seems to make a lot of sense.

Given that these will be lower-priced entries into the Pixel family, you won't find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that now powers the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

While we've been receiving Pixel 3 Lite leaks from Russian blogs Wylsa and Rozetked since November, the authenticity of these reports remained unconfirmed. Another interesting aspect of the device is that both the phones will sport a 3.5mm headphone jack, something that is famously missing on the flagship Pixel 3 range. The upcoming devices are expected to feature a single 12-megapixel camera at the back and an 8-megapixel selfie camera.

Like with its current high-end Pixel 3 lineup, Google will reportedly offer the Pixel 3 Lite in two sizes, with the smaller of the two smartphones expected to feature a 5.5-inch display and the larger expected to feature a 6-inch display. Just like the Pixel 3 smartphone, the Pixel 3XL is selling with an exchange discount of Rs 18,300 along with no-cost EMI option starting at Rs 7,292 per month.

If you are surprised about the Pixel 3 being in the middle of the list, you are not alone. It is expected that the Lite series phones will also enjoy the privilege of getting the latest software updates before anyone else.

Also, it could be Snapdragon 670 or 710 forming the core of the device, coupled to a 4 GB RAM along with 32 GB of storage.
