Six Google-made devices — both identifying as a “smartphone” — have just passed through the FCC this morning. These models line up with a previous leak about the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite.

A report from early February suggested that the Pixel 3 Lite carries model number G020B, while the Pixel 3 XL Lite is G020F. Today’s listings are for G020AG020BG020C, G020DG020EG020F, G020G, and G020H. The former four are likely variants for the smaller device, while the latter four belong to the larger.

All eight feature standard functionality like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and LTE Bands. Test reports on this signal and cellular capabilities were issued from mid-December to late January.

One document for G020G — which has yet to leak unlike the Pixel 3 Lite — notes that the device runs “Android 9,” but otherwise the reports are light on details. 

For all eight of today’s devices, short-term confidentiality for identifying images is requested until August 24, 2019. The date is two months before Google hosts its traditional October event, suggesting an earlier launch for these “Lite” phones.

The Pixel 3 Lite has been thoroughly leaked with a plastic body, though the rear is styled similarly. It features a USB-C and returns the 3.5mm audio jack to the Pixel lineup. Rumored specs include a 5.5-inch 1080 x 2160 LCD screen driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The main 12.2MP camera is supposed to be on par with the Pixel 3, while there is only one 8MP lens up front.

Update: Post now reflects all eight models.
