Google is expected to launch a cheaper version of the Google Pixel 3 sometime in the coming months. While the company is yet to reveal any details about the upcoming smartphone, a bunch of hands-on images has now surfaced that sheds some light on the specifications. The model may be launched as Google Pixel 3 Lite and features thick bezels on the sides. The device also sports a 3.5mm headphone jack that was previously dropped from the Google Pixel family. There is also a power button that comes in neon yellow color while the handset has a white color body.
The leaked hands-on images of the device have been shared by Russian site Rozedked that shows the specifications and also reveals its launch schedule. The smartphone looks quite similar to the Google Pixel 3 with the power button and volume rockers placed on the right. It does not feature a display notch like the Pixel 3XL and sports thick bezels on the sides. It features a SIM card slot on the left side with the 3.5mm headphone jack placed on the top. Other features include USB Type-C port, loudspeakers, and a microphone grill.
The smartphone features a glossy finish on the rear panel with a protruding camera sensor and a fingerprint scanner. The back panel appears to be made up of plastic which is unlike the Google Pixel 3 or Google Pixel 3 XL which features a glass back panel.
As per rumors, the Google Pixel 3 Lite will feature a 5.56-inch full HD+ IPS display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. It is likely to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 670SoC coupled with Adreno 615GPU and 4GB of RAM. It will feature 32GB of inbuilt storage space which can be further upgraded with the help of a micro-SD card. On the optics front, the smartphone may feature a 12-megapixel sensor on the rear panel along with an LED flash and an 8-megapixel sensor on the front for selfies. It is likely to be powered by a 2,915mAh battery under the hood.
