Rumoured Pixel 3 'Lite' surfaces in Russia – Ausdroid

Rumoured Pixel 3 ‘Lite’ surfaces in Russia

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.

It’s not the first time we’ve heard of Rozetked, with the site hosting a number of images and sample photos from the Pixel 3 XL before it was officially announced. Rumours have previously pointed to two low-end devices, one called ‘Bonito’ and the other ‘Sargo’. The site refers to this device as the Sargo model, so what’s happening with ‘Bonito’ which has had a few mentions previously is anyones guess.

In terms of Sargo though, the phone looks very much like a Pixel 3 in White, though with a bright yellow power button and as you’d expect from a budget device it’s a little bit thicker. It has some rather thick bezels around the 5.56″ 2220×1080 resolution IPS LCD display but as with the Pixel 3 there’s no notch.

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. Google has also included a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the phone

The phone has one big step up on both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, with a headphone jack included at the top of the phone. There’s speakers at the bottom – at least two holes either side of the USB-C port on the base on this purported Pixel variant as well as an earpiece on the front.

Camera wise, there’s a 12MP rear camera – which it’s possible is the same module on both Pixel phones meaning it could be an outstanding shooter like it’s higher priced brothers, but only a single 8MP front-facing camera so no wide-angle group selfies here.

According to the sites sources the Pixel 3 Lite will be priced at $400 (or around $INF AUD)–$500 (or around $INF AUD) and be announced either at the end of this year, or soon after the beginning of next year. It’s likely not going to show up in markets where the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is sold normally, so more emerging markets.

" Daniel Tyson : @phroghollow Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it. Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.."

  • These Russian guys are very good at obtaining stuff. Most likely someone in the Google supply chain is connected to the Russian mafia.

    I can't understand why Google wouldn't sell it in first world markets. I used to buy Nexus phones, but stopped with the Pixels because they are too expensive. So why wouldn't Google sell it here when they know that there is a marketable percentage of people who don't buy the current Pixels because of price. I bought a Nokia in the similar alleged price range of this Pixel Lite and I damn well would have bought the Pixel Lite if it was available. So to me, Google is missing out on sales. Doesn't matter how fricking awesome the Pixel 3 is, I aint fricking buying it at the price they want.
