Love status Rozetked.me, a Russian publication that was also published by Pixel 3 XL before launch, we see a device called "Sargo". In the last few weeks we have also heard the code code "Sargo" next to "Bonita". The report refers to this device as Pixel 3 Lite, but there is nothing that should be supported as a Google brand for the device.
At first glance, this device looks like a Pixel 3 family, especially a smaller model. There are some very big changes here, though, including the fact that the whole phone is built of plastic material instead of metal and glass making up Pixel 3.
Like the standard Pixel 3, the screen has a size of approximately 5.56 cm, but this time the IPS LCD panel is 2220 × 1080 and not an OLED panel. Obviously, this alleged Pixel 3 Lite is not visible. There is a single front camera as well as one speaker above this screen, relatively thick frames on the top and bottom and a speaker at the bottom of the device.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about hardware is that there is a headphone jack on the top of the phone. This is definitely unexpected, as Pixel 2 dropped the socket and since then Google has not looked back.
Test from Rozetked they also disclose some specifications that run on this device. This includes the Snapdragon 670, 4GB of memory and 32GB of storage space. Previous reports have been shown on Snapdragon 710. The battery capacity on this device is also shown at 2915 mAh and the bottom of the USB-C connector.
One tadbit in this report contains details about the camera hardware. Apparently, this Pixel 3 Lite will use the same 12MP and 8MP cameras found in Standard Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. If so, it would be a huge selling point for an affordable phone market.
The report states that this device can cost about 400 to 500 dollars. It is unclear if this is true, but past reports help to support lower prices. Earlier this year, the report stated that Google worked on the Pixel for medium markets for Emerging Markets. India seems to be the main target of such devices, and Google has also focused on this area. Most likely, this Pixel 3 Lite is not a device that we will see in the US, but it seems to be very appealing so far.
