Reports about Google's supposed budget model of its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones , the Pixel 3 and 3 XL Lite, are taking shape; the latest says that the new phones are coming to Verizon in spring 2019. 

The news comes via a source for Android Police, adding to the supposed photos that surfaced at the end of November from Wylsa, one of the blogs that had gotten its hands on the Pixel 3 XL before it was released.

Wylsa also said that the cheaper models will have plastic backs instead of glass, incorporate midrange Snapdragon 670 processors and come with 4GB RAM/32GB of storage. 

We reached out to Google for comment but didn't immediately hear back.

Watch this: 2018 was the year of the phone. It's only getting better
