The rumors have made their way in, and its all about a budget Pixel phone this time, codenamed ‘Sargo“, and for several months now. The name actually popped up in an ARCore that was released just last week, which signalled that the device could be nearing completion. Russian technology blog Rozetked has just posted a hands-on with the unreleased device, calling it the “Pixel 3 Lite“.
The phone, visually, looks very similar to the Pixel 3 and Pixel XL, though with the larger bezels and no screen notch. A headphone jack, which was famously dropped from the Pixel lineup, is present on the top of the device. Also, the power button on this white model is a solid neon yellow color.
The display is also a 5.56-inch IPS screen (not AMOLED), with a resolution of 2220 x 1080. For the processor itself, Google chose the Snapdragon 670, which so far has only been used in phones intended for Asian markets (like the Oppo R17). THis could even mean the Pixel 3 Lite may not make an appearance in the United States.
Other specs for this new phone from Google includes 4GB’s of RAM, 32GB’s of storage (no MicroSD card slot), a 12MP rear camera, then theres the 8MP front facing camera, and a 2,915mAh battery. It’s not entirely clear right now when this phone will actually be coming out and what market it will be available in.
