According to a leaked photo from the other day, it seems that Google could have a new Pixel 3 phone in the works in the form of the Pixel 3 Lite which has been referred to by its codename “Sargo” which was spotted in the ARCore APK teardown. Now thanks to more photos shared by Rozetked, sample photos taken by the phone’s camera have been revealed.
Now one of the reasons why the handset has been dubbed “Lite” is because it is expected to be a cheaper version of the Pixel 3, which means that in terms of specs, Google will have to give up certain high-end features to keep its costs down. The rumors are claiming a lower-powered chipset and less RAM, but there was no mention of camera.
However based on what we can see, it appears that the camera will not be compromised. The rumors claim that the camera might be of the 12MP variety and like we said, based on what we can see and assuming they are taken by the phone, it actually looks pretty good and seems to be capable of capturing the details well.
The photos seem to be pretty sharp and crisp, although they do seem a little “dull” in terms of colors, but that could possibly be due to lighting which can be fixed to a certain extent using editing apps. No word on when the phone will be launched, but apparently it is being targeted at Asian markets where it could be priced at $400-500.
