A new Geekbench listing was found today with the moniker Google Pixel 3 Lite XL, which pretty much confirms the name of the upcoming Google phone.
Google Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL have been in the news of late but the real name of the phones were not confirmed anywhere yet. We have been identifying the upcoming Google phones only with the help of codenames such as Bonito and Sargo, both of which have already appeared in Geekbench with different specs and monikers like Google Pixel 3a XL.
Google Pixel 3 Lite XL was expected to ship with Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC or Snapdragon 710 SoC but today’s Geekbench listing confirms that the processor to be used will be Snapdragon 625 SoC (MSM8953).
The score on Geekbench shows 866 as the single-core score and 4272 as the multi-core score. The RAM is 3GB and the clock speed of the octa core processor is 2.02 GHz. The phone will be powered by Android 9 Pie OS out of the box. The Geekbench score of Pixel 3 Lite XL is much better than that of the phone codenamed ‘Sargo’ which has scores such as 744 and 3201 for single and multi core. However, Pixel 3a XL, with codename ‘Bonito’ has registered much better scores than Pixel 3 Lite XL, with 1600 and 5171 for single and multi core score respectively.
Pixel 3 Lite XL is expected to be a 6-inch phone with 3 GB and 4 GB RAM variants and 32 GB of internal storage. The phone is expected to have a single rear camera with 12 MP sensor and a 8 MP selfie camera in the front. Both Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL are expected to have the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
New FCC filings of Google phones with model numbers G020A, G020B, G020C and G020D (for Pixel 3 Lite) and G020E, G020F, G020G and G020H (for Pixel 3 Lite XL) were found in the last week of February. All variants of the phone support Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, LTE and NFC. These phones are expected to be released before the successors of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are released in the second half of the year.
