Remember that plasticky Pixel 3 Lite that leaked not too long ago? While there has been no announcement from Google, the two devices have leaked several times, giving us some idea about their specifications. According to the new report, the smartphones will be ready for a Spring 2019 launch and will be exclusive to Verizon, America's largest wireless carrier.

The Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite are speculated to be priced between $400 and 500 (Rs 28,000 and Rs 35,000 approx).

So why exactly is Google interested in launching mid-level budget smartphones? Some suggest that Google will opt for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC for the Pixel 3 Lite while others suggest the use of a Snapdragon 710 SoC. Google's Midrangers Suppose Google does release Lite versions of the Pixel 3, it will mark the first mid-range phones from the company since the Nexus 5X, which launched in 2015 for $379.

Why launch mid-range Pixel phones in the United States at all? The search giant is said to have plans to launch the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite in partnership with Verizon. That includes a 12 mp rear camera while an 8 mp sensor will be adorning the front.

And, if you're in the market for a Pixel 3 XL instead, you can get the 128GB version for £819.

While the Pixel 3 Lite is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display, the Pixel 3 Lite XL will reportedly sport a bigger 6-inch display.

That smaller 2017 flagship now starts at $599 and is on the market in only Black and Cleary White. Even though the Pixel 3 phones have already been regarded to be among the best camera phones, the score by DxOMark places them in the middle of the list. The software maker gave the same score to the iPhone XR, while the OnePlus 6T scored 98 points. This is less than half of Pixel 3's price, which retails at about $799 in the US and Rs 71,000 in India.
