The base variant could have a 5.56-inch IPS display at 2220×1080 pixels and running on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset. As per leaks, these devices won’t be having a notched display. Other leaked specifications of this device are 4GB RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, 12MP rear camera, a 2,915mAh battery, and an 8MP single front-facing camera.

Meanwhile, the XL variant could sport a 6-inch display and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SOC. For the moment, there is no news on other spec details. Both the phones would be running on Android 9 Pie out of the box. They would be having USB Type-C, Nano-SIM card and unfortunately no card slot for expandable storage.

Expected Price and Announcement Date

We could expect their official announcement in April or May of 2019. Since Google would be targeting to compete with existing players like Oneplus and Xiaomi’s Pocophone, we could expect the pricing strategy somewhere along the same lines. However, since the flagship lineup was priced around Rs. 80,000. These phones’ prices could float in the Rs 40,000 to Rs 50,000 range. Recent leaks indicate the US launch via Verizon Wireless.

So, if the purported leaks and rumors are true, we will have a mid-range budget smartphone from Google. If not for anything else, Google’s prowess in computational photography and camera department is a treat to relish. What’s your take on this? Let us know in the comments.
