[Leaked] Google Pixel 3 ‘Lite’ Will Come With Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 And A Headphone Jack


Till today Google has been sticking to a two-smartphone rule with its yearly refresh, including with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL earlier this year.




But we may be seeing another variant of the smartphone family coming at some point in the future. A leaked series of images shows off what is being called the “Pixel 3 Lite” also codenamed as Sargo. Although it looks a lot like the standard Pixel 3, there are some important differences to be made aware of. That starts with a 3.5mm headphone jack, which will apparently be located at the top of the handset.




The new device will reportedly also boast a single front-facing camera, rather than the pair of cameras that the Pixel 3 features. Google is reportedly making changes under the hood, too. That includes swapping out the Snapdragon 845 from Qualcomm and opting for an octa-core Snapdragon 670 processor. There is only 32GB of built-in storage, rather than 64GB. 

Other specifications include 4GB RAM, 32GB of storage (no microSD card slot), a 12MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, and a 2,915mAh battery. It's not clear when this phone will actually launch, or what markets it will be available in.

The phone visually looks very similar to the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, but with larger bezels and no screen notch. A headphone jack, which was famously dropped from the Pixel line last year, is present on the top of the device. The power button on this white model is a solid neon yellow color.

What do you think? Would you buy a new Pixel 3 variant with a 3.5mm headphone jack, even if it downplayed other specs?
