We are not surprised by this news. After all, Verizon is the only distributor of Pixel 3 in the United States. Of course, Google may also sell in its own online store.
Pixel 3 Lite / Pixel 3 XL Lite is a budget-sensitive customer base with pricing strategies similar to the Nexus line of smartphones many years ago. For example, the Nexus 5X / 6P starts at $379, but the new Pixel is $649, and the price/performance ratio is not outstanding.
