Google working on a Snapdragon 710-powered Pixel phone for 2019
Rumor has it, Google will launch two Pixel 3 smartphones later this fall, both being consistent upgrades over the current Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL models. The phones are said to be manufactured by Foxconn, but LG Display is supposed to provide the panels for the upcoming Pixel 3 handsets.

However, there's a new rumor running around that claims Google has already started working on yet another Pixel smartphone, which will be launched in the first half of 2019.

Unlike the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, this rumored Pixel smartphone will be powered by the most recent Qualcomm chipset, the Snapdragon 710, a processor aimed at mid-range Android handsets.

Not much is known about the mid-range Pixel smartphone yet since development has just started. In fact, there's no guarantee the Google will eventually launch this particular device next year.

Although it may be surprising that Google plans to enter the mid-range smartphone market, it makes sense for the search giant to put its new mobile division bought from HTC at work. Perhaps will learn more about Google's plans this fall when the new Pixel 3 smartphones are set to be revealed.
