Google reportedly has a new mid-range Pixel phone up its sleeve, and this could be our best look yet.
Called the Pixel 3 Lite, it’s reportedly positioned below the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to be a more affordable option, sort of like the iPhone XR. Some specs leaked last month, but this could be the closest we have to concrete evidence.
It comes from a case manufacturer. Its these people’s business to know the design of new handsets so they can have their cases ready in time for launch.
The leak shows a handset very much in keeping with previous leaks. The proportions are very similar, and the rear camera and fingerprint scanner placement are what we’ve heard before. There’s also a 3.5mm headphone port, and pair of speaker grilles flanking the USB-C port on the bottom.
Where this one differs is in the front-front-facing camera. Previous reports have said the Pixel 3 Lite would only have one selfie snapper, whereas this design gives it two, as do the standard Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Could Google give its mid-range smartie similar imaging prowess as its pricier handsets? It would be quite a compelling proposition if so.
There’s also reportedly a Pixel 3 Lite XL in the works, though this phone seems less of a dead cert than the Pixel 3 Lite.
