Like the Google Pixel 3, a lot about the Google Pixel 3 Lite has been out here in the build-up to its launch in the coming weeks.
In the latest round of leaks, a Ukrainian outlet has published a video of the phone’s “pre-production unit”, giving us our best look yet at the device alongside the specifications to expect.
The video basically confirms most of what has been said before about the Pixel 3 Lite. We are looking at a plastic-made handset with a visible glass shade on the upper side and a yellow power button.
On the bottom side of the phone are two speaker grills on either side of a USB-C port while the SIM card slot can be seen on the left-hand side of the device. Unlike the premium Pixel 3, you get a 3.5mm audio jack on the top edge.
The top bezel is also pretty clean as it lacks a second speaker and a secondary selfie camera to add to the primary 8MP unit. On the back, though, you still get a 12.2MP lens that is said to take the same quality of photos as the Pixel 3. You can check out some samples of the photos captured using the Pixel 3 Lite here.
For the internals, you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset allied to 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Whether there will be a second storage option is unknown. The LCD display panel is 5.56 inches in size and has a 1080p resolution with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Keeping it alive will be a 2,915mAh battery.
Running Android 9 Pie out of the box, the Pixel 3 Lite is said to arrive after the Google I/O 2019, which doesn’t match previous reports pegging the launch date this spring. But then again, all of these are unconfirmed reports, so we just have to wait and see.
Meanwhile, you can watch the hands-on video with the Pixel 3 Lite pre-production unit below.
