The leakster, Ben Geskin, took to Twitter to reveal the Google Pixel 3 Lite smartphone. The image posted on Twitter showcases the Google Pixel 3 Lite right beside the Google Pixel 3. The Pixel 3 Lite is on the left while the Pixel 3 is on the right. One of the most visible difference is the taller screen of the Pixel 3 Lite which stands tall at 5.56-inches diagonal with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. Apart from this, visually there doesn’t appear to be too much of a difference. So, what exactly powers the upcoming Pixel 3 Lite smartphone?
The Pixel 3 Lite is driven by the Snapdragon 670 SoC and is coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. In all probability, there may be a 64GB storage variant of the device in the near future. In terms of its battery, the device uses a 2,915mAh capacity battery, the exact same one found on the Google Pixel 3. The Pixel 3 Lite will also have the same 8MP rear-facing camera with an 8MP front-facing selfie shooter. One thing which many will be happy to know is that the Pixel 3 Lite will have a headphone jack and will likely launch with Android 9.0 Pie.
