Google Pixel 3 Lite XL spotted running Snapdragon 710 on Geekbench

Google’s Pixel 3 Lite smartphones have been in rumors for quite some time. They’ve been in the spotlight so much that we virtually know everything about the devices.

While we know that the Pixel 3 Lite will be powered by the Snapdragon 670, we think that the Pixel 3 Lite XL will be powered by Snapdragon 710 processor, as it was rumored too.

We just spotted a Pixel device — the listing name is Pixel 3 XL to be precise — powered by sdm710 processor on the Geekbench, along with 6GB RAM.

Now, sdm710 stands for Snapdragon 710 chipset, and we all know that Pixel 3 sports Snapdragon 845 chipset. So, what gives? This has to be the Pixel 3 Lite XL, right? That Foxconn is the listed OEM in place of Google only indicates that the device is only in the production stage right now, because that’s the name of the company that makes the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL sets too.

So, a Pixel with Snapdragon 710 and 6GB RAM. That’s cool, right? And it has to be the Pixel 3 Lite XL, what do you say? Also, the device scored 1805 on single-core tests on Geekbench while 5790 points on the multi-core tests.

We know that we would love to have a Pixel 3 Lite XL with 6GB RAM and Snapdragon 710 chipset over the Pixel 3 Lite with 4GB of RAM and Snapdragon 670 processor. What about you?

Sure, Pixel 3 Lite XL be a tad costlier than the Pixel 3 Lite, but it wouldn’t cost too much given the whole idea behind the Lite version is to make the Pixel phones affordable, and that Snapdragon 710 remains a mid-range processor.

To reconcile, the Pixel 3 Lite XL is expected to feature a 6-inch display and will feature a no-notch full HD+ IPS display and a headphone jack.

As regards the Pixel 3 Lite, it would feature a 5.56-inch IPS display with a Full HD+ resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels, Snapdragon 670 processor, 4GB of RAM with 32GB of storage, a meager 2,915 mAh battery, and a 12MP camera at the back.

Specs

  • 6-inch IPS display with a Full HD+ resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels (no  Notch)
  • Snapdragon 710 processor
  • 6GB RAM
  • Android 9 Pie

Release date

  • January release expected
  • Should launch in the US with Verizon
  • Could be priced about $400-450

Both the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL sets are rumored to be released in January 2019 but we don’t have an exact date yet.
