Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel Watch: Google’s new hardware for 2019

A cheaper Pixel 3, a new Google Home and even a smartwatch, Christmas might come early.

It’s been a couple of years since Google did some pretty sturdy hardware innovations. Pixel 3 was more of a software upgrade if you don’t take the Super-Res Zoom into account. Google is getting their hands dirty with the latest of tech and we are pretty hyped up. There will be a cheaper Pixel 3, the Pixel 3 Lite unveiled later this year. There is also hints of a new Pixel 4, a Google Home and a Pixel smartwatch launch too.

The new hardware lineup is much anticipated. Google tends to have secrets under their sleeves but over the past few months, we know that they aren’t pretty good at it. There have been pretty significant leaks regarding the Pixel 3 Lite, even with an unboxing and review straight up on YouTube. This might not make things good for Google, but it does let users feel that Google is constantly innovating.

Pixel 3 Lite

The Pixel phones are great when it comes to state of the art mobile technology. Be it just top notch machine learning in the software or the hardware coupled with it. They know how to make phenomenal consumer tech devices. Earlier this year, we saw a video posted on YouTube, unboxing the upcoming Pixel 3 Lite. It has got pretty usual now. Google should just come up and announce this instead, “You know it all, the leaks are all true. Enjoy the devices. Ciao.” But as the search engine behemoth is known for their Googliness, let’s dig in to find some cool stuff.

In-Depth: Pixel 3 Lite

There already has been an array of leaks and articles on them. This won’t just be about the Pixel 3 Lite leaks. Rumors say it sports a 5.6-inch IPS display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB storage, and a Snapdragon 670 under its hood. The device is going to cost less than the iPhone XR’s whopping $749 (though that still leaves a broad range of price points). With major league companies like OnePlus, RealMe, Oppo getting users a lot more for a lot less, Google must rethink and recalculate. An earlier report from Android Police said that a Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite would launch on Verizon this spring.

Focusing on the obvious things first, the Pixel 3 Lite will be a cheaper version of the Pixel 3. Both devices will be very similar in appearance. Unlike the Pixel 3 XL, there won’t be a notch on this one. The Pixel 3 Lite is a plastic body with a smooth textured finish to make it look premium. The power buttons might be made a little more ‘contrasty’. There will be a headphone jack. I guess Google can’t really figure out there core choices in a smartphone. Although we need a headphone jack if you’ve taken a step further, why look back?

The sim card tray is now on the left side. While the Pixel 3 has two front cameras, the Lite will have a single. The Pixel 3 Lite is basically the Pixel 2 wrapped in a new cover. For the audiophiles, there lies a piece of bad news. There are no dual front-facing speakers on this one. Google is making too many changes and they might regret a few of them.

BottomLine

There have been extensive leaks about most of the Google devices in the past year or two. With the upcoming Google Home and Pixel SmartWatch, they should up their security a bit. We as techies do love surprises and would love to see something unveil at an event and not as we scroll through a subreddit.

Pixel 4 is also to be launched this year. With the support for Foldables on Android now, there might be hints on Google’s first foldable phone. But with Samsung, LG already in the market, will Google be able to up their game to withstand the competition? Stay subscribed with us to find it out.

That’s the bottom line. Thanks for the read. If you’ve got any tech help or any tech news related issues, please hmu at manish@techincludes.com. Peace Out.
