For the past few months, we ve been hearing rumors and seeing leaks about Google s alleged Pixel 3 Lite smartphone. As the name suggests, the device would be a mid-range smartphone. It s expected to have slightly less-capable hardware specifications, but the same class-leading cameras as Google s flagship Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL flagship devices. Now, a bunch of renders have given us the best possible look at not just the Pixel 3 Lite , but also its sibling, the Pixel 3 XL Lite .

The information comes courtesy of the ever-reliable leakster OnLeaks, who has collaborated with 91Mobiles for high-resolution renders of what could be Google s upcoming affordable Pixel 3 duo. Going by the renders (and the accompanying video), it s easy to see that there are quite a few visible differences between the regular and Lite Pixels. The biggest difference is that unlike the Google Pixel 3 XL, there s no hideous notch on Google Pixel 3 XL Lite . Also, even though both smartphones are seen with sizeable top and bottom bezels, there s only a single speaker on the Lite variants. In comparison, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have stereo speakers. Also Read - Samsung and LG confirm presence at in-person CES 2022
Even more interesting is that both affordable Pixels are not just shown with a single front-facing lens, but also a 3.5mm audio port. Of course, the USB Type-C port is there as well.
As far as the overall design is concerned, the Google Pixel 3 Lite and Google Pixel 3 XL Lite appear to be largely identical to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
