Google launched the Pixel 3 series of phones aka the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL just a couple of months ago. Looks like, the search giant is in no mood to stop just here anytime soon. Rumours have been making rounds on the internet for a long time stating that Google is working on affordable Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL models. Some newly leaked 5K renders and a 360-degree video now reveals more details about the two upcoming budget Pixel phones. The leaked 5K renders and a 360-degree video shows the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL in all their glory. Both the phones appear in two colours – white and black – just like the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL. The renders, as well as the video, shows the phones from all angles.
As far as the overall design of the phones is concerned, both the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will boast the same design language as the Pixel 3. But, unlike the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL – that have all glass design – the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will be made of polycarbonate, which makes sense considering the price of the upcoming Pixel phones are going to be much lower than the existing ones. These renders were obtained by 91mobiles.
Pixel 3 Lite, Pixel 3 Lite XL Renders and Video Leak
As already noted, both the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will have the similar design language as the Pixel 3. Not just that similar to the existing Pixels, the upcoming ones will also come in two colours – white and black. Similar to the Pixel 3, the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will have no notch on the front, unlike the Pixel 3 XL. The renders further show the phones with quite thick bezels on the sides compared to the Pixel 3. On the rear panel, both the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will include a single camera sensor on both front and back.
The placement of the camera on both sides will yet again be similar to the Pixel. On the rear panel, following the rear panel camera will be the circular shaped fingerprint sensor. Right below the sensor, there will be the Google brand logo similar to all Pixel phones. One of the most noticeable differences between the upcoming Pixel phones and the existing Pixel 3 is the polycarbonate back. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are made of all glass body, but that will not be the case for the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL. This makes sensor considering Google is planning to target the budget segment users with the upcoming Pixels.
