Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were launched last year, and reports of 'Lite' variants for both the phones have been doing the rounds for a while now. The Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite are expected to launch in Spring this year, and now the two variants have passed through certification.

Four separate filings each for the Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 XL Lite were spotted, likely for different storage option. Google is yet to officially state anything about these lite versions of the Google Pixel 3.

The US FCC filing was first spotted by 9to5Google, and it lists model numbers G020A, G020B, G020C, G020D, G020E, G020F, G020G, and G020H. The latter four are expected to be of the Pixel 3 XL Lite, and the former four are likely variants for the smaller Pixel 3 Lite. All the variants come with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and LTE support.
