There have been numerous reports suggesting Google is working on more affordable Pixel variants with "Lite" moniker. We have even heard of rumored specifications and now, a new Geekbench listing has been spotted showing a device claimed to be the Pixel 3 XL Lite. The biggest highlight of the listing is that the smartphone is shown with 6GB of RAM.
The Geekbench listing has shown a phone referred to as "Foxconn Pixel 3 XL" with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. This is same as previous reports which have further claimed that the Pixel 3 Lite will feature Snapdragon 670 chipset. The most interesting bit of information is 6GB RAM which, if true, will be the highest amount of RAM for any Pixel smartphone yet. The current-gen flagships Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come with 4GB of RAM and even the Pixel 3 Lite is reported to offer only 4GB RAM. On the software front, it is running the latest Android 9 Pie which is expected from a Pixel smartphone.
If we talk about previously rumored specifications, the Pixel 3 Lite XL is said to sport a 6-inch display which should be a Full HD (1080p) panel. The internal storage is expected to stay limited at 32GB with no words on whether there will be a microSD card support. It is further said to have a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera.
As for the Pixel 3 Lite, most of the specifications are expected to remain the same except for a few changes here and there. It will be having a smaller display of 5.56-inch in size. The change of processor has already been mentioned above which will be Qualcomm Snapdragon 670. There are no details regarding the pricing but these are speculated to cost anywhere between $400-$500.
