Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Google Pixel 3 may soon have a rival of low-cost cameras

Huawei's award-winning Mate 20 Pro and Google's Pixel 3 are considered the two best smartphone camera systems on the market.

The Mate 20 Pro comes with a triple camera setup that is comprised of a 20 megapixel, 20 megapixel wide angle lens and an 8 megapixel telephoto lens.

The three sensors combine to offer an incredibly diverse experience that was praised by in our Mate 20 review.

We said: "The Huawei Mate 20 Pro offers by far the most flexible camera system on the market thanks to its triple variety of snappers who are incredibly capable.

"The present wide-angle sensor allows much more to be squeezed into an outlet and is a saving grace when you're struggling to fit an object into a frame in the standard lens.

"Unlike the telephoto tools present in many other flagships, we find ourselves using the wide-angle lens regularly."

Meanwhile, Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL employ a single 12.2 megapixel lens that leverages the power of Google's intelligent machine learning technology.

During our device test, we were surprised by some of the scenes that Pixel 3 managed to capture.

In fact, we label Pixel 3 as having the "best camera back on a smartphone now" in our review of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

While both the Mate 20 Pro and Pixel 3 have laudable camera systems, it looks like both devices are about to be radically challenged by a new budget rival.

Russian manufacturer Rozetked recently published images of a phone it claimed to be a Pixel 3 "light" smartphone.

The device looked extremely similar to the current Google Pixel 3, but featured a bright yellow lock button instead of the mint green currently available.

In addition, the station insisted that the hardware has a 5.56-inch screen that takes advantage of LCD technology instead of the OLED present in Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Most notably, it has been said that a Snapdragon 670 chipset will power the device instead of Qualcomm's 845 Snapdragon present in Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL and a ride of other Android flagships.

A headset was also displayed on the top of the product, a design feature that did not appear on a Pixel smartphone since the original device launched in 2016.

A number of other claimed specifications include a 2915mAh battery, an 8-megapixel selfie camera and a 12-megapixel rear sensor.

In fact, the Russian publication stated that the Pixel 3 "lite" will be just as capable as the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL when it comes to taking pictures.

And the outlet even posted photos of claimed device samples that boasted high levels of detail.

The less-premium processor and screen appear to be two factors that will help Google sell the Pixel 3 "light" at a much lower price than the standard Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL that was claimed.

Rozetked even speculated that the Pixel 3 "lite" could be sold for $ 400 (£ 312.21) and $ 500 (£ 390.26).

He added that the alleged device should be released in the first half of next year.

Although Rozetked was responsible for leaking both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL ahead of Google's official revelation, it's worth noting that a Pixel 3 "light" was confirmed by the Mountain View company.
