Google is rumored to launch two new mid-range Pixel smartphones soon for consumers in emerging markets such as India. One of these is known to be designated as Sargo. It is believed that this smartphone will end up launching as the Pixel 3 Lite in the coming months. Leaks in the past have suggested that the phone will run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 octa-core processor under the hood, clubbed with 4GB of RAM. The phone is said to make use of a 5.5-inch LCD screen. It is also expected that the handset will only feature one loudspeaker as opposed to the stereo speaker setup found on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. It will even offer just one front-facing camera. Leaked renders suggest the outer build of the phone will be pretty much the same as the two flagship models.

The Google Pixel 3 Lite is expected to be a toned-down version of the Google Pixel 3. As such, it is expected to share a lot of similarities with its flagship siblings. However, there will be some notable downgrades such as a polycarbonate construction instead of a glass build. Leaked renders showcase how the phone will have sizeable bezels on its sides. It will also likely arrive with just one speaker and a single selfie shooter.
With that said, the renders reveal that the phone will bring back the 3.5mm headphone jack. The rest of the connectivity options including USB Type-C port, SIM tray, volume rocker, power switch, and the twin grill design largely remain the same.
