Update 1: 14/12/2018
New Google Pixel 3 Lite Cases leaks confirm the previously revealed designs of the budget pixel from the search giant. As you can see in the images below they perfectly match with the one we reported previously. So, here we have a Dual front-facing selfie camera’s, dual front speaker grills which are great add-ons, apart from that 3.5mm headphone jack gets confirmed as well as the single camera sensor on the rear, which should handle portrait mode like a champ.
Update 2: New Benchmarks points/confirms Specs for Pixel 3 Lite
newest benchmarks surfaced on Geekbench shows the single core and multi-core score of a possible Snapdragon 710 device paired with 6GB RAM and it has been said that this could be the upcoming Pixel 3 Lite and the Pixel 3 XL Lite.
The Single Core score with the Snapdragon 710(Octa-Core chipset) is 1805 which is really good for a mid-range budget device, while the multi-core score of the Pixel 3 Lite is a whopping 5k+ an outstanding result.
Speaking about its camera, it doesn’t need dual camera setup as Google’s image far superior then anything ever seen on a smartphone and same will be the story here. However, from the looks of this images in cases, this doesn’t have a premium feel to it and does feel like it comes from the budget category and we hope Google prices it aggressively at least similar to what we have seen in the past from the Nexus series especially to that of the Legendary Nexus 5.
Google’s Pixel Lite has been in rumors and leaks for many months now and so far we have seen some solid details about the device such as some expected specs and mentions about the device. But now we have some really good looking renders of the Google Pixel 3 Lite as well as the Pixel 3 XL Lite from all angles. And from the below images you can see, the device is quite identical to the original Google Pixel, but this one feature the modern aspect ratio of the screen.
The Pixel 3 Lite and the XL Lite models follow the traditional smartphone design philosophy, that’s not notches or fancy bezel-less display’s, which conveys the fact that these are more budget-friendly options from Google. The device sports the same dual finish rear panel and the button placements are also the same. Moreover, We have a 3.5mm Headphone JACK, Yay! The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the rear side of the Pixel 3 Lite.
Speaking about the rear, we have a single shooter with a DUAL LED flash while the front also sports a single snapper for selfies. Thus, keeping costs down and not entering the multi-camera war. However, as we know that Google is a wizard when it comes to image processing and we expect at least the first gen Pixel level image quality from the rear snapper of the Pixel 3 Lite and also from the Pixel 3 XL Lite.
Artificial Intelligence will also play a huge role here in enhancing the captured images even if we don’t have a dedicated neural engine similar to the one seen on the Flagship Pixel 3 XL. But the neural engine found within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Chipset will be used here to the optimal level. The Snapdragon 710 could end up under the Pixel 3 XL Lite, while the newly debuted Snapdragon 675 which is also a powerful processor will be powering the non-XL Lite model.
In the memory department, you can expect 3GB and 4GB ram models with 32GB and 64GB of internal storage options without any sd-card support. Battery capacity will around 3000mAh to 3500mAh for the XL Lite models, while the screen sizes will also be larger on the XL Lite variant at about 6.2-inch and the standard Pixel 3 Lite will stick between 5.7-inch to 5.9-inch both at 1080p 18:9 resolutions.
The Pixel 3 Lite will be the company’s second attempt after the Nexus series in the budget segment and with a solid camera, it has a fair chance to take on the likes of the Moto G7 series, Asus Zenfone Max series, and Xiaomi’s budget army.
The device is expected to be priced under $450 to $400 for the Pixel XL Lite while the Pixel 3 Lite is expected to be priced around $300 to $375. It will hit the market in early 2019 with the latest version of Android. Now the question is will this put out an end to the Android One smartphones?
