Let’s go back to talk about Google Pixel 3, the new smartphones coming from the Mountain View giant of which now we know almost everything; what might surprise, however, would be the third smartphone for this series, characterized by a lower price than the two older brothers.
The rumors of a possible third Google Pixel medium-range come back to life, from the “human” price – compared to what is expected for Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL – that we already had the chance to hear last April ; this time the information comes from ET Telecom, which talks about Google’s plans to launch another Pixel in India after the presentation of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL .
This new and still mysterious device, as mentioned, should focus on the price – as well as on Google quality – to break the Indian market, huge for potential customers but that has not very well received the first two models of the Pixel series. The price should be in the range of 40000-50000 rupees, about 480-600 euros (against 70000-85000 rupees, 845-1025 euros, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL).
Prices certainly not for all budgets, but that would allow many more users to be tempted by the Google proposal; with similar rates, we have seen arousing OnePlus 6, even if the latter presents a technical card to the last cry while this new Pixel is still an unknown quantity.
According to the report, the Google Pixel hardware team would go to India to explore the medium-range smartphone market, and in particular, try to understand the reasons for OnePlus’s success.
The information that emerged in recent months on this Google Pixel spoke of Snapdragon 710 and availability at the beginning of 2019. So we have to wait for the next moves of Google, but let’s face it: who does not regret at least a little.
Updated 09-01-2018: The third pixel device to be launch after the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL launch date in October is yet to be unknown but we know it will be cheaper than the pixel 3 devices. Also, the mid-tier Google Pixel device is meant to compete with OnePlus devices. The idea of a mid-range Pixel in India would be to entice owners of OnePlus, Oppo, and Vivo phones to switch.
