Is this the hotly rumored 'Pixel 3 Lite' budget phone?

Is this the hotly rumored 'Pixel 3 Lite' budget phone?”

The leaked pictures of the mid-range Pixel phone show the device from nearly all angles.

You'll notice that it looks similar to the Pixel 3 and 3 XL but just with larger bezels and no dual, front-facing speakers or cameras. Besides, the notch that's present on the Pixel 3 XL isn't present on the Pixel 3 Lite. Even before Google officially announced the Pixel 3 phones, rumors circulated that it would release a third, mid-range version too.

Pictures of a small, budget Pixel 3 handset have appeared online. We also got to know that there is indeed a mid-range Pixel with Snapdragon 710, codenamed "bonito".

The rumoured low-end Pixel phone has been a rumour for some time, but it may be closer to reality than we've previously thought with pictures of a device surfacing on Russian blog Rozetked. A starting price of $400-500 (roughly £310-390 / AU$545-680) is being mooted. The standard dual-tone white coloration is seen here as well but the mint-colored side button has, in this case, been replaced with an nearly gaudy-looking neon lime or yellow-colored button.

Google mocked apple at the first generation Pixel smartphone launch event, and Google did remove the headphone jack with the next generation Pixel smartphone. You can check out the remaining leaked specs of Pixel 3 Lite down below. The selfie camera should be the same from one of the Pixel 3 cameras.

The theory is that the phone will be aimed at the mid-range market and in keeping with that the phone has a Snapdragon 670 processor, 4GB of RAM (no microSD card slot) and 32GB (UFS 2.1 and eMMC 5.1) of storage with a 2915mAg battery. We have come across several rumours about the mid-range Pixel phone in the past, but none of them revealed any concrete detail about the phone. However, the quality of both these cameras is said to be the same as the cameras on Pixel 3.

Probably the most exciting features are the cameras, which are the same 8MP front and 12MP rear lenses found on all the Pixel models. And then more recently, in September, one more report came out stating that Google would launch a mid-tier Pixel smartphone in India to rival OnePlus.
