Some leaked images of a new Pixel device surfaced a couple of weeks ago which hinted at the possible release of a budget Pixel device. The leaks labeled this new Google device as Pixel lite which featured a headphone jack and aspect ratio of 18:9. Earlier in 2018, it was also spotted via a tear down off the ARCore APK which showed a headset codenamed ‘Bonito’ as a new phone model by Google. The phone was later codenamed “Sargo” and was confirmed to be a budget-friendly device for stock android-lovers.

As it turns out, the images of the phone have been leaked once again. This time a Russian website Wylsa has shown pictures of Pixel 3 Lite photographed next to the very first Pixel device and some iPhone models.
The phone is expected to be considerably cheaper compared to the ultra-expensive $800 Pixel 3 and $900 Pixel 3 Xl. However, reduction in price has also downgraded the phone from glass-aluminum body to a plastic body, from an AMOLED display to LCD display and from Snapdragon 845 to Snapdragon 670, but other than these changes, the phone is expected to feature that same Uber-popular camera and all the software exclusives.

Possible specs and price:

Full spec sheet (alleged) of the phone includes:

  • 4GB of RAM
  • 32 GB of storage (no SD card slot)
  • Snapdragon 670
  • 12 MP rear camera
  • 8 MP front facing camera
  • 2,915 mAH battery
  • 5.5 inch, 2220 x 1090 IPS display

The phone is expected to cost somewhere between $400-500. The release date of the phone has not been leaked, but it is expected to come out at the end of 2018.
