There’s not much that can be said about the launch of the device but the device will not be unveiled with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL that are coming later this year.

The latest rumor comes from German leakster Roland Quandt who tweeted that-

“Off to Taiwan for @computex_taipei today, but here’s a tidbit for ya: Google is working on a “mobile” device based on the Snapdragon 710 currently scheduled for launch in the 1st half of 2019. Sounds like this might be the (or one of them) upcoming mid-range pixel phone.”

Quandt further said that- “No I do not know if there is one planned for this year. No, I do not know any specifics in this device, only the CPU. Hardware dev work in this only just started about a month ago.

But at the same time, it is thought-provoking that another report being circulated on the internet back in April suggested that the search engine giant was planning to launch a Pixelbook laptop, a smart speaker, and smart home automation products along with the mid-budget smartphone in India around the same time.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 is the latest “upper-mid-end” processor and it is much more powerful than the Snapdragon 660.

To be more informative, Snapdragon 710 is the first processor in the company’s new 700-tier portfolio, which comes with significant improvements over the 600-tier chipset series. It has been built using the 10nm processing technology and it features multi-core AI engine and neural network processing capabilities. It comes with eight cores of Qualcomm Kryo 360 CPU which can clock a speed of 2.2GHz and Qualcomm Adreno 616 GPU. It also features Qualcomm Aqstic audio technology, which is available in its premium Snapdragon 845 chipset, and Quick Charge 4+ technology, which can charge 50 percent battery in just 15 minutes.

With this expected mid-range lineup, Google seems to on an epitome expedition that can secure a substantial Indian market share competing with premium market leaders such as Apple, Xiaomi, Oppo and recently OnePlus.
