Keep in mind that Google never announced the prospect of a third Pixel 3 phone and the company didn't immediately reply for a request to comment.

According to the sites sources the Pixel 3 Lite will be priced at $400 (or around $545.62 AUD)-$500 (or around $682.02 AUD) and be announced either at the end of this year, or soon after the beginning of next year. But sadly that didn't happen.

Google Pixel phones are great, especially if you're looking for the best camera in a smartphone. Plus, it was only a year ago when Google's head of hardware Rick Osterloh said that "Pixel stays premium". Previous rumours had revealed that Google could be working on two Pixel phones with codenames Sargo and Bonito.

One of the two phones are rumoured to be a toned down version of the other. But now, pictures of the phone, showing the complete design of the device, have surfaced online.

By the looks of it, the mid-range Pixel 3 or the Pixel 3 Lite is quite similar to the Pixel 3. "Most importantly, Rozetked says the Pixel 3's world-class camera has not been downgraded and "[it's] the same as the regular Pixel 3 and is not inferior in quality".

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were easily the most leaked and worst kept secret of the modern tech world.

The leaked pictures show the Pixel 3 Lite from all angles - the back, the front, the cameras and the sides.

The surprising element though is the headphone jack placement on the top of the device, which was ditched by Google with its last tier Pixel devices. To cut down the cost of the upcoming phone, Google appears to be using plastic instead of glass.

Appearance wise the white variant of the phone seems to sport a neon yellow power button. The volume keys, however, are white in colour. The rear panel appears to have a glossy texture with a single camera set up paired with LED flash. The Russian blog, Rozetked, which has gotten hold of the device calls it the Pixel 3 Lite.

In the camera department, the phone will feature a single rear camera with a 12MP sensor whereas the front too will see a single 8MP shooter.
