- A Google Pixel 3 Lite video review has appeared on YouTube.
- The review, by a Ukrainian website, reiterates several key features.
- Google's cheaper Pixel is said to offer comparable photo quality to the Pixel 3 vanilla.
The Google Pixel 3 Lite is the worst kept secret in the mobile industry right now, and the leaks keep coming. This time, a video review has been posted to YouTube (seen above), giving us a more extensive look at a pre-production device.
The video review, spotted by Android Police, purportedly comes from the Ukrainian tech website Andro-news.com. The channel seems rather new though, with only three videos. The site itself has not been updated with the Pixel 3 Lite review either, so you will want to take this video with a grain of salt.
Anyway, the reviewer notes that the phone is made of plastic and has a headphone jack in the top of the device. This echoes the first Pixel 3 Lite leak, which revealed a plastic build and 3.5mm jack.
The reviewer also recaps the specs, which seem to align with previous leaks too. That means a Snapdragon 670 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 5.56-inch full HD + LCD screen (no notch here), and a 12MP main camera, 8MP self-camera, and a 2,915mAh battery.
What about battery and camera?
Speaking of the battery, the Pixel 3 Lite is said to offer similar endurance to the standard Pixel 3. Unfortunately, we do not get any figures in this regard, such as screen-on time. We thought battery life was the Pixel 3's Achilles heel though, as the device only achieved between four and five hours of screen-on time.
As for the camera? The reviewer claimed that the Pixel 3 Lite's camera quality was identical to that of Pixel 3. We would have to take a closer look at the two devices to figure out if this is the case. But it would not be hard to believe, as unofficial Google Camera Ports have delivered great results on budget phones.
The reviewer adds that the device will be available in Spring, after the Google I / O conference. So I would not bet against more leaks emerging before then, if this launch window is really the case.
