Google is working on six more devices that will go official in the coming months. Although the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are selling well, Google now wants to concentrate on the mid-range market as well. We expect that four of the six upcoming handsets will be the mod range handsets from the company. The most interesting forthcoming smartphone from the company is the mid-range Pixel 3 version.
This device has a codename – Sargo, and it will follow the trends of a tall screen and a headphone jack. Today, we’ve got an image of the Pixel 3 Lite, and it sits right next to a Pixel 3. Due to a compact size, both the handsets look identical at first sight. Note that the Lite model is on the left, the Pixel 3 on the right.

Interestingly, the screen size on the Lite model of the Google Pixel 3 Lite seems to be marginally taller than the Pixel 3’s, as it has a 5.56″ diagonal (compared to 5.5″) and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9, not 18:9.
The specifications on the Pixel 3 Lite will not be the best in the mid-range segment. The handset will run on a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 670 SoC, and it is not the most dominant mid-range SoC. Google could bring Snapdragon 710 SoC for the best midrange performance on the handset. Rest, the handset will come in 4/32GB configuration for the base model. We still have no information available for a higher variant. Also, there exists a whopping 2,915 mAh of battery that seems to be okay for a midrange handset.
The camera configuration on the Pixel Lite includes a 12MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. Above all, these numbers offer some striking resemblance to the camera numbers on the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL. No dual selfie shooters here, though. We expect that the handset will capture the title of best camera smartphone on a midrange smartphone in the market.
The Google Pixel 3 Lite will run on Android 9 Pie, but the handset will be available for specific markets alone. Looking at the leaks, we expect the handset to arrive soon.
