Adding to the pile this week is Android Police, which, citing a source familiar with Google's plans, claims that the company will launch two new smartphones on Verizon in early spring 2019: the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite.
Sadly, there's no concrete information on when exactly the Pixel 3 Lite-series will launch, but we can expect it to arrive in India seeing the potential of affordably-priced phones in the country. As per reports appearing in certain sections online, Google is planning to release 2 smartphones via the U.S. carrier, Verizon.
For quite some time now, Google has been rumored to be working on "Lite" version of the Pixel 3 phones. The former will reportedly carry a 5.5-inch display with a 6-inch screen expected on the latter (with the pair featuring a slightly taller 18.5:9 aspect ratio).
In the past reports, the Pixel 3 Lite was purportedly spotted alongside the Pixel 3 and additionally the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone 5s, and the Nokia 3310.
Google Pixel 3 was launched at a starting price of Rs 71,000.
If you are surprised about the Pixel 3 being in the middle of the list, you are not alone. That includes a 12 mp rear camera while an 8 mp sensor will be adorning the front. Confirming earlier leaks, the new report mentions that the upcoming device will sport a 3.5mm audio jack. These mid-range phones will be toned down versions of the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL.
Wylsa also said that the cheaper models will have plastic backs instead of glass, incorporate midrange Snapdragon 670 processors and come with 4GB RAM/32GB of storage. The Pixel 3 starts at $799 and the Pixel 3 XL starts at $899, so it would make sense for Google to fill the gap with lower-cost options.
