A more affordable version of the flagship Pixel 3 smartphone could be introduced by Google next year, with the latest rumours suggesting that it will cost half as much as its closes sibling.
In spite of the major saving it represents, the Pixel 3 Lite will purportedly come with a decent 5.56 inch full HD display and a design which is in keeping with the look and feel of the other devices in the range.
Corners will be cut by using plastic for the chassis rather than coated metal, but this could end up being more durable in the long run and might not be that much of a deal breaker for consumers looking to keep costs low.
Like the Pixel 3 it will feature a 12.2 megapixel primary camera on the rear, along with a front-facing 8 megapixel snapper. It will also share the same immediate access to the latest Android updates, along with an unadorned version of Google’s mobile platform which is technically presented as intended by the developers.
The exact release window for the Pixel 3 Lite remains a mystery, but it is expected to touch down in the first half of 2019.
