A video making the rounds on YouTube has leaked the heavily anticipated Google Pixel 3 Lite. We experienced something similar to the Pixel 3 XL last year. It’s fair to say this is becoming a trend with Google phones.
The viral video was from a Ukrainian website known simply as Andro News. The site gave a full review of the device before the video was later taken down after racking up thousands of views. However, a similar video reviewing the smartphone is up on YouTube: we will share it at the bottom of this piece.

From the flip phones to plastic phones, the smartphone industry has come a long way. Pixel 3 Lite is made of pure plastic instead of a metal frame or etched glass. The device was given the moniker ‘Sargo’. You’ll find the earphone jack at the top of the smartphone. There seems to be a lot of similarities between this and the Pixel 3.
The Pixel 3 Lite runs on a Snapdragon 670 processor and a 4GB RAM. The in-built memory is 32GB. This device doesn’t spot a front-facing camera, neither does it feature a speaker in front. From what we gathered, the screen is an LCD 5.56-inch 2220×1080. The battery capacity stands at 2,915mAh.
The main camera of the phone is a 12.2MP camera with 1.4-micron pixels – it, however, lacks the Pixel 3’s spectral and flicker sensor between the lens and flash. There’s also no mention of Pixel Visual Core’s inclusion. If we’re to trust the review, it says the phone takes the same quality photos as the Pixel 3.
Finally, the reviewer predicts the phone will be officially available in spring, shortly after the Google I/O conference.
