A Google Pixel 3 Lite leak has appeared out of the blue, re-fueling rumours about a budget Pixel phone. And here’s what the device codenamed Sargo, looks like.

Pixel 3 Lite leak

Before you tell us, the phone looks similar to the Pixel 2 XL or the Pixel 3, those phones have stereo front facing speakers, which sadly the Pixel 3 Lite does not have. Google might have chosen to do so to keep the price low, because the phone does have a giant forehead and chin, which there is lot of room which could have been used for the speakers.

The Pixel 3 Lite leak shows off a 3.5mm headphone jack on the phone, which the Pixel 2 XL and 3 don’t have. That’s a nice trade-off I suppose. The device runs on Android 9 Pie, no surprises there.

According to the Rozetked report, the Pixel 3 Lite sports a 5.56-inch FullHD+ IPS display, with no notch. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor (even though one of the screenshots says Snapdragon 710). The phone has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. That’s a first from a Google phone.

The Pixel 3 Lite indicates that the main camera on the rear is a 12MP lens with a selfie flash, and this is apparently the same cameras that the Pixel 3 has. The selfie lens on the Pixel 3 Lite is an 8MP front camera. The device is backed by a 2,915 mAh battery.

The Pixel 3 Lite has a rear-placed fingerprint scanner, and the back panel features the same dual matte finish pattern that we have seen on Pixel devices. The Pixel 3 Lite even has the coloured power button similar to the other Pixels.
