Numerous rumors swirling about the entry-level versions of Google's Pixel smartphone appear to be on the money - except what Google plans to call its upcoming devices.

Google's new mid-range smartphones will allegedly not be called Pixel 3 Lite and Lite XL as previously reported. Early reports suggested those phones would feature LCD screens as a way to keep the cost of the devices down. With a big battery, a Snapdragon 670 instead of the Pixel 3's Snapdragon 845, a headphone jack, and a plastic build instead of glass, the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL could indeed be tempting at the right price point, but the two details still missing are a concrete price and a release date. The Snapdragon 670 and Snapdragon 710 aren't flagship chipsets, so the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will need to possess other impressive attributes to warrant a purchase. "The Pixel 3a will sport a 5.6" display, and the Pixel 3a XL (sigh) will have a 6" display.

9to5Google was also able to confirm some of the specs for the two new devices. But 9to5Google cites a source claiming that the 5.6-inch Pixel 3a will use an OLED panel. Additionally, both devices will support fast charging via a USB-C port. The devices will also lack the display notch that is found on the Pixel 3 XL.
