Google Pixel 3 Lite gets reviewed on video ahead of official announcement
Although Google does not seem to want to sell smartphones in high volumes, the fact that the company is gearing up to launch two affordable Pixel phones could mark a change in strategy.

The Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL are two middle-class smartphones that are rumored to arrive at Verizon at some point this spring. Renders of the phones have already leaked online last year, but Ukrainian tech blog Andro News has taken things a little further and published a short video review of the Pixel 3 Lite.

You can find the full specs list below, but there are a few things that aren't mentioned there. First off, the Pixel 3 Lite is a cheap smartphone, which is why Google has opted for a plastic body. Secondly, unlike the current Pixel models, the upcoming Pixel 3 Lite will include a 3.5mm audio jack on the top side.

Another major reveal is related to the camera, which apparently is just as good as the ones on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Even though the device shown off in the video is a pre-production unit, it takes exceptional pictures.

The only downside seems to be the fact that both Pixel 3 Lite models will ship with Android 9 Pie on board, if they'll be launched on the market this spring, immediately after Google I/O 2019.
