Now that the phones are out though, rumors about a Pixel 3 Lite haven't ceased, and it looks like people are still holding onto the possibility.
The expected price of Pixel 3 XL is $ 400-500 and it is expected to be official by the first quarter of 2019.
Of course we won't know for sure until Google has something to say about this upcoming device - the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL leaked nearly in their entirety before they got announced in October, and the Pixel 3 Lite is following that lead. That doesn't bode well for the future of this unannounced Pixel in the US. In terms of design, the new Pixel 3 Lite will carry a similar design language as that of the Pixel 3, sporting a 5.56-inch display with 2220x1080px resolution. But we've been hearing about a mid-range Google Pixel smartphone for over half a year now, and two mysterious code-names believed to belong to the next Pixel smartphone have appeared in Google ARCore's calibration database. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 10nm Octa-Core processor with the Adreno 615 GPU. This device is said to have a 5.56-inch IPS LCD with 2220 × 1080 pixels across its face. Still, it is good to see that we don't have an ugly notch like the one on Pixel 3 XL. There's speakers at the bottom - at least two holes either side of the USB-C port on the base on this purported Pixel variant as well as an earpiece on the front.More news: Cleveland Cavaliers to sign Patrick McCaw, Golden State Warriors restricted free agent

It also looks like it will come with 32GB of storage, at least. Of course, being a Google phone, we can expect it to run Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box. The latest Pixel 3-series has set a new benchmark for mobile photography by combining the best camera hardware with software to deliver brilliant photographs. This means that the Pixel 3 Lite will not come with a notched display or dual selfie cameras. You can check out the remaining leaked specs of Pixel 3 Lite down below.
Camera wise, there's a 12MP rear camera - which it's possible is the same module on both Pixel phones meaning it could be an outstanding shooter like it's higher priced brothers, but only a single 8MP front-facing camera so no wide-angle group selfies here.
