The rumor circles surrounding Google’s flagship Pixel series of phones got some sort of “validation” as the company’s website, for the second time in two weeks, have acknowledged the fact that it indeed is working on a new “lite” version of the company’s latest flagship smartphone, Pixel 3. The “new” page, which has now been taken down by the company, confirms the name of the phone, Pixel 3a.

Codenamed “Bonito” and “Sargo”, the phones are speculated to have identical displays, with 4GB of RAM. Despite the aquatic reference used in the name, Google is probably heading the other way, with the Sargo getting a slightly better display (from 1080 x 2160 to 1080 x 2220) and a slightly better DPI (400 to 440). This also indicates to the fact that Sargo will probably pack-in a smaller 5.6-inch display while the Bonito will have a 6-inch display.
