With even budget smartphones — most from China — shipping with dual-camera sensors in the market, it fairly comes a shock to learn that phone manufacturers would still fall back on using a single shooter at the rear panel of a high-end mobile devices. Sand to say, that might be the case for the forthcoming Google Pixel 3 XL, as a set of latest leaked photos suggests that the handsets will have a single camera at the back.
However, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, which were released in October last year, have shown that the single rear-facing camera shooter is more than competent to shoot near-color-accurate and detailed photographs, so the impending Google Pixel 3 XL should be an even more an efficient handheld mobile device in terms of its camera.
As a plethora of Chinese smartphone OEMs have started adopting the trendy in-display fingerprint sensor, the United States technology companies including Google and Apple are still deliberating over this one. According to the new image published by leakster Ice Universe, the larger Pixel 3 XL is indeed going to feature a single camera at the back panel as well as a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, which evidently means that the upcoming Pixel phones made by Google will not be coexisted with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The mountain View-headquartered search giant revealed during the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL launch event that these smartphones are still able to shoot photos with software-enabled bokeh effects while depending on just a single camera on the back. This is quite impressive since many thought that a dual-camera was essentially required to produce bokeh pictures. The sole feature that users will be missing out from the Pixel 3 XL is the absence of optical zoom, but it is not going to be a big deal for many prospect buyers.
Instead, we may see the tech company taking a changeable aperture lens methodology similar to what Samsung did to the Galaxy S9 and S9+, but since nothing is substantial at the time being, we cannot independently verify this new report. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will reportedly feature an OLED screen display, meaning that integrating an in-display fingerprint scanner is not going to be an issue for the Google or the smartphones.
