According to the rumors, Google apparently has a budget version of its Pixel phones in the works dubbed the Pixel 3 Lite. Now thanks to leaks by @OnLeaks and 91mobiles (via 9to5Google), renders of what appears to be the Pixel 3 Lite and the Pixel 3 XL Lite have made their way online.

For those who are learning about these “Lite” phone for the first time, the rumors are saying that the Pixel 3 Lite will feature a 5.5-inch display, while the Pixel 3 XL Lite will feature a 6-inch display. These renders show both phones side by side where you can obviously tell where one phone is bigger and the one phone is smaller.

However unlike the existing Pixel 3 XL, the Lite version of the phone will actually feature bezels around it and will be doing away with the notch. We’re not sure why that is, perhaps creating an edge-to-edge display is more expensive, and keeping it budget-friendly is one of the alleged features of the phone.

Also other concessions Google had to make to phone the phone cheaper was to use a lower-end chipset from Qualcomm in the form of the Snapdragon 710 (the smaller Pixel 3 Lite is rumored to use a Snapdragon 670). It also appears that there won’t be a dual camera design, although it looks like Google could have retained the headphone jack.
