Google’s Pixel series has set the benchmark in the industry for premium grade smartphones, especially in the camera department. The recently launched Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been earning great reviews so far. However, it seems like the company is now focussing on some other devices. There have been talks of an affordable Pixel 3 Lite. Now, we’ve finally got our first look at the renders of both the Pixel 3 Lite and the Pixel 3 Lite XL.
Google Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL renders
Both the Google Pixel 3 Lite and the Pixel 3 Lite XL share a design language similar to the Google Pixel 3. However, upon closer inspection, you can easily spot the difference. For starters, unlike the stereo speakers on the Pixel 3, there’s only one speaker which doubles up as an earpiece. Up front, there’s only a single selfie shooter, much like the Pixel 2. Fortunately, though, the new Lite variants will bring back the 3.5mm jack.
Similar to the Pixel 3, you get a near bezel-less display without a notch like the Pixel 3 XL. There’s also the signature dual-tone finish on the back. The buttons are pretty much in their standard location. There’s the power button followed by the volume rockers on the right side. On the left side, you get the ejectable SIM tray. Down below, there’s the USB Type-C port sandwiched between the speaker grilles. What’s more is that the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL will feature a polycarbonate construction instead of glass build. The new smartphones will be launched in black and white hues. What’s more is that the white variant will be sporting the power button in neon green color.
