Talking to a supply aware of the corporate’s plans, we have discovered that Google intends to launch two new Pixel smartphones on Verizon in early spring 2019 – the Pixel 3 and 3 XL “Lite.” A precise announcement date and pricing aren’t but recognized. A Pixel 3 Lite prototype was leaked on a Russian tech weblog final month, fueling rampant hypothesis about the place the telephone could be bought and the way it could be positioned in Google’s bigger smartphone lineup. Later, renders of the three Lite and OnLeaks have launched a more significant XL variant.
These “Lite” Pixels would be the first hones within the mid-range Google has launched because the Nexus 5X, which launched at $379 within the US in 2015. Though we are not so sure about the leaks up to now, it has been having advised a reasonably constant set of specs: a Snapdragon 670 or 710 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, headphone jack, and 12MP rear and 8MP entrance cameras. The smaller phone will allegedly have a 5.5″ display screen, whereas the bigger XL may have a 6″ display.
These phones are all however assured to have inferior cameras, inferior efficiency (each when it comes to CPU/GPU and modem), and way more limited storage. A 32GB smartphone in 2018 is a tricky promote, even on the costs, these are more likely to sit at. And with OnePlus persevering with to broaden its presence in America (and including Verizon help), the XL model may very well be a very dangerous worth if Google is not positioning these phones with very aggressive MSRPs.
