Google is all set to jump into the mid-range smartphone market by launching two mid-range Pixel phones. We are already aware of the fact that the Google Pixel 3 Lite is launching next year with specifications like Snapdragon 670, the same rear camera as the Pixel 3, headphone jack, etc. But, there is also a bigger variant of the Pixel 3 Lite named the Google Pixel 3 Lite XL (That’s quite a big name).
If you are a fan of the bezel-less design, then this phone is going to disappoint you. The Pixel 3 Lite has huge bezels on top and bottom. Also, there is no front-firing speaker placed on the bottom chin like on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which seems a waste of space.
The back design remains unchanged from the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL as there is the same two-tone design, rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and a single rear camera. This time, Google went for a plastic build instead of glass or metal.
Unlike the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, the Google Pixel 3 Lite has a 3.5mm headphone jack placed on top which is a good thing. The USB Type-C port is placed on the bottom with two grills on either side. We cannot say if both are speaker grills. Well, that sums up the whole design of the phone. Not much has changed from the Pixel 3’s design.
GOOGLE PIXEL 3 LITE XL
The Google Pixel 3 Lite XL, as the name suggests, is a variant of Pixel 3 Lite with a bigger display. But, unlike the Pixel 3 XL, there is no notch or any cutout whatsoever. The phone still has the same aspect ratio as the Pixel 3 Lite. The main difference is probably going to be in the specifications.
As the previous leaks have suggested, the two mid-range Pixel phones from Google are codenamed ‘Sargo’ and ‘Bonito.’ The Google Pixel 3 Lite is ‘Sargo’ and the Pixel 3 Lite XL, ‘bonito.’ ‘Sargo’ is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset whereas ‘Bonito’ has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor.
The Pixel 3 Lite has a display with size around 5.5-inch whereas the Pixel 3 Lite XL has a roughly 6-inch display. Both the phones have the same thickness of 8.2mm (9mm when the camera bump is also included). The dimensions of the Pixel 3 Lite are 151.3 x 70.1mm whereas those of the Pixel 3 Lite XL are 160 x 76.1mm.
Just like the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, don’t expect the pricing of these upcoming mid-rangers from Google to be any impressive. According to a source, the price of Pixel 3 Lite will be around 400-500$.
