    Obviously wild speculation, but might as well get a thread going since we're probably going to end up discussing it anyway..

    Early spec says more for the EM markets, but still an interesting concept.

    You know.. The speculative pricing of $400-$500 seems a bit outside for what's being suggested as the target region of Emerging Markets. But hey, maybe there is more disposable income in that region than I might realize.

    Will be interested to see if the camera hardware gets all of the software enhancements of the flagships. That would make this a potentially interesting device for some. Otherwise the OnePlus products would seemingly blow this out of the water specs wise.

    32 GB of storage??? I think that would be a big mistake.

    I live in Brazil and there's a big market for that prize range. My guess is that a good midrange Pixel would sell okay, I would be the first one to get it

    Motorola tried something similar with the X4 (a bit cheaper) and most people in communities I follow here decided against it because the storage. 32 GB with Pie and dual partitions are not enough for most users.

    There is still the question whether google will allow unlimited storage for photos on the phone. That would make a big difference especially because of how small the storage is.

    Motorola has a chokehold on South Amerca, no? Huge presence from what I've read.

    I read a similar article on Flipboard earlier. Rumors has it that it might come with a headphone jack. I thing Google should have included one to all Pixels in the first place.

    Google should not waste their time with this , price not good ,specs,build
    Look at iPhone R the only thing is the screen which is lcd and probably still a good one at that , very good specs and build is still good .

    So if this is a targeted for India, mid ranger for emerging markets as some have speculated, you still think it's a waste of resources? I mean, I don't necessarily disagree since the 3/3XL have availability there already, but maybe another country like Brazil?

    I agree with yet there are people out there that think 32GB is fine. I guess if you mostly use it as a phone that might work...lol

    I'm not sure why anyone would buy it. Just wait for the Pixel 2 to drop more.

    Don't know why anyone in those regions would buy this Pixel Lite over the Pocophone.

    Pocophone vs Pixel Lite:

    6.1" screen vs 5.5" screen (same resolution on both)
    Snapdragon 845 vs Snapdragon 670
    6gb ram (up to 8gb) vs 4gb ram
    64gb base storage (up to 256gb) vs 32gb base storage (up to 128gb?)
    4000mah battery vs 2915mah battery
    $300 vs $500

    Am I missing something here? I really don't know why anyone would bother with the Pixel Lite if budget is a consideration. Much, much better value for money going with the Pocophone.

    I mean, at least make it competitive. Pocophone runs circles around this Pixel Lite.

    The pixel 3 lite pictures, info and specs were leaked by the same people who originally leaked all the pixel 3XL unboxing videos, specs, camera images etc. We all thought that couldn't be real either..... the notch, phones for sale for 2 grand etc. I wouldn't be at all surprised if this is Google's version of an iPhone XR. They may just want to get pixels in people's hands, then once they start liking the experience like we do they'll become loyal users and start working their way up the model line..... probably like a lot of us have, starting with the first gen and working our way up.

    As you guys know pixels are addictive.....kinda like electronic crack LoL.

    I'm starting to question this. My brother had the Galaxy S8+ and upgraded to the Pixel 3 XL as I did this year. He isn't too impressed with it and to him the phone isn't noticeably better than his S8+. I was talking to him that the Pixel is faster and smoother and he kinda shrugged and said 'yeah I guess' but it wasn't something that he really noticed or cared about.

    He's not a techie at all and just a regular consumer, he only got the Pixel because he looks to me for tech-related purchases and he basically said that the phones are pretty much the same and if the Pixel is better, it's marginal and the main, important things to him - messages, calls, emails, Facebook, etc are exactly the same. He's looking to get the S10 or Note 10 next year. I mentioned that if he went back to Samsung, he'd miss out on monthly security updates and software updates, which he didn't care at all for as he doesn't download random apps or do anything risky on the phone. I said he'll lose the unlimited photo/video storage and again he didn't care, the free high res option was fine and paying an extra $20/year for 100gb Google storage is not a big deal.

    Granted this is a sample size of 1, but I thought the Pixel experience would have been more noticeable to him, but it was more of a side grade to him if anything. I'd be interested to see if casual phone users, the ones who don't post on phone forums, actually find a real difference going from a Galaxy to a Pixel and if they feel there are any tangible differences.
