Up front, the phone looks a lot like Pixel 3 with a notch-free rectangular display and prominent top and bottom bezels.
On the back, there's a dual-tone finish, a single camera, and fingerprint sensor - all reminiscent of the Pixel 3 flagships.
Further, the leak claims the Pixel 3 Lite will feature a 5.56-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2220×1080 pixels.
Surprisingly, Google Pixel 3 Lite will sport a headphone jack
In the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google killed the audio jack. The same was seen on the Pixel 3 flagships. However, the leak shows a 3.5mm jack on the top edge of Pixel 3 Lite, suggesting a change in trend (a welcome one).
Pixel 3 Lite will get Pixel 3's camera
Pixel 3 Lite will sport a 12MP rear camera with a flash and an 8MP selfie snapper.
The Russian publication also claims this phone's "camera is the same as the regular Pixel 3" (translated text), suggesting Pixel 3 Lite will use the same 12.2MP sensor seen on Pixel 3 flagships.
Further, the budget Pixel phone would get all of Google's computational photography features.
Under the hood
Pixel 3 Lite to run on a mid-range Qualcomm processor
The leak claims Pixel 3 Lite will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, paired with Adreno 615 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of non-expandable storage.
Under the hood, the phone will pack a 2,915 mAh battery and run Android Pie out of the box.
Lastly, the leak also confirms a USB Type-C port but we don't know if it supports fast charging.
Pixel 3 Lite could would be priced under Rs. 36,000
The Russian tech blog speculates that Pixel 3 Lite could be priced anywhere between $400 (approx. Rs. 29,714) and $500 (approx. Rs 35,892). However, while we have a ton of details, we still don't know when does Google plan to launch this budget Pixel phone.
