After launching the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, Google is seemingly working on slightly less expensive Pixels which are expected to be Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite. Rumours and leaks about the new upcoming Pixels have been making rounds on the internet for a while now and some of the key specs of the Google phones have been revealed. After the numerous renders, now a video of the alleged Pixel 3 Lite has been leaked only by Andro News, a Ukranian tech blog. The video shows a pre-production unit of the Pixel 3 Lite and shows the phone from almost all angles to give the viewers a fair idea on how the upcoming Pixel phone will be like.
Pixel 3 Lite Video Leak Confirms Specifications
The video reveals a lot of details about the Pixel 3 Lite. Some of them go in line with the previous leaks while some very fresh information about the phone has been revealed about the phone. The video brings a shocking revelation, which is no headphone jack on the phone. Yes, the pre-production unit of the Pixel 3 Lite shows no 3.5mm headphone jack. However, it could be possible that the final production unit of the phone could include the jack, considering the video shows the pre-production unit the jack is missing.
The Pixel 3 Lite is said to be powered by 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset with Adreno 615 GPU, paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. As of now, there’s no information on the expandable storage bit; possibly there’s no way one can expand the storage space on the Pixel 3 Lite via microSD card. Recently, the Pixel 3 Lite was spotted on the Geekbench benchmarking portal with the same Snapdragon 670 SoC.
The video further shows that the Pixel 3 Lite will include USB Type-C port at the bottom, and there’s also a mono speaker.
