Slated for a mid-2019 launch
Google just confirmed the existence of the Pixel 3 Lite after surfacing several months ago. Known as the Pixel 3a, the upcoming mid-range Pixel made a brief appearance at Google’s site.
Aside from appearing at the Google site, the Pixel 3a also appeared at the Google Play Console, carrying the codenames “Sargo” and “Bonito”. According to the leaked details, both Pixel 3a will have 4GB RAM, though they differ in screen resolution: The “Sargo” will have a resolution of 1080 x 2220, while the “Bonito” will have a 1080 x 2160 resolution.
It can be presumed that the “Sargo” will be the Pixel 3a, while the “Bonito” will be the Pixel 3a XL.
Other rumored specs for the Pixel 3a include a Snapdragon 670 processor, a headphone jack, and a 2915mAh battery. The bigger Pixel 3a XL is rumored to have a Snapdragon 710 processor.
Both phones are slated for a mid-2019 launch, and we expect Google to formally unveil them at Google’s I/O 2019 conference on May 7.
