The disassembling of the latest version of ARCore APK exhibited the display of two devices namely – Bonito and Sargo (showed up for the first time in the APK teardown). Previously we only knew about the development of the third Pixel which would apparently be less powerful and cheap. There had been an online leak of the hands-on photos and specs of Sargo.
The pictures belong from the Russian site known as Rozetked.me which had leaked the Pixel 3 XL before its official launch and the Pixel 3 Lite looks much like its siblings with the two-tone of white color but much unlike the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, the back is made up of the plastic cover with a yellowish green power button. The front is similar to Pixel 3 which is saved for the lack of the dual front cameras and the front faced speakers. It consists of 18:9 display screen and the back is geared with a single camera. An LED flash along with a fingerprint scanner. However, the bezels are pretty thin.
The phone is expected to have a 5.56-inch display along with 2220*1080 resolution, apart from removing the glass back and eliminating the camera from the front side, Google had enabled LCD instead of OLED for the display panel. The device doesn’t have a notch, satisfying certain customers.
Sargo is also geared with the Snapdragon 670 processor indicating the ability of Bonito to acquire Snapdragon 710 as rumored. The chipset is expected to be coupled with 4GB RAM and 32 GB of storage, more exciting configurations can be expected for the launch.
The cameras are expected to be the same as Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with the installation of 12 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front facing camera that rounds off with 2915 mAh battery, a USB-C post, and an audio jack.
It is expected to be priced between $400-500 that is cheaper and more affordable than the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL. There had been reports that Google is planning to launch it within the developing markets, keeping India in the forefront. It will hopefully be making large to the US or Europe where it may take on the iPhone XR.
