Google's rumored mid-range phones, the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite, have received official model numbers, lending further validity to their impending release. Better still, sources are reporting that the devices will also launch in the India market, likely below INR 40,000.

Rumors are flying that Google will soon release mid-range Pixel phones, colloquially called the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel XL Lite. While we don’t know a lot about the devices, we have seen them show up on Geekbench’s database (among other places). Now, MySmartPrice reports that the devices have received official model numbers. Better yet, the devices will be headed to India in addition to Western markets.

The Pixel 3 Lite (as it’s currently known) has the model number G020B, and the Pixel 3 XL Lite has the model number G020F. These numbers in of themselves tell us nothing about the phones, but the fact that Google has officially numbered the devices means that they will very likely release the phones to retail markets.

One of these markets, according to MySmartPrice, will be India. There’s been no word on pricing (not surprising, given that the devices don’t even have official names yet), but MySmartPrice expects the phones to come in under INR ₹40,000 (~US $550), which makes sense given the rumored specifications. The Pixel 3 Lite (G020B) is expected to have a Snapdragon 670 SoC, while the Pixel 3 Lite XL (G020F) is rumored to have the more powerful Snapdragon 710.

Keep in mind this is still speculation and should be taken as such. We'll know more about the devices when/if Google announces them in the near future.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
