Earlier this year, we came to know that Google has been working on a mid-range Pixel phone dedicated to the Indian smartphone market. The reports claimed that Google may launch the device in July. However, since then, we haven’t heard much about it. But now, according to Roland Quandt, a popular tipster, Google is working on a mobile device that will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710.

He mentioned that Google may launch the device by the first half of 2019, and again, clarified that hardware developments for the same began last month.

So, as of now, only the processor and a possible time of launch are known. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 is already here with the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE and if Google really launches a mid-range Pixel phone with Snapdragon 710, it is quite possible that the phone will carry price tags similar to devices in the upper mid-price segment, somewhere near the $500 mark, possibly.

The Snapdragon 660 is currently a popular choice among device manufacturers, which is also the predecessor to the Snapdragon 710. When compared to the Snapdragon 660, the Snapdragon 710 will provide some performance improvements and theoretically, it should have 30% lesser battery consumption, while offering advanced features using machine learning.
