Yes, more alleged Pixel 3 information is flowing in again. Last week, concept renders revealed that both the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL would only sport a single-lens camera at the back, and not two (or three) like the rest of the competition. Today, a leaked image of the Pixel 3 XL’s case reaffirms this theory—online tipster Ice Universe has uploaded a tweet with the image of what’s supposedly the case for the Pixel 3 XL. A quick examination reveals a cut-out for only a single-lens camera, not a double.

It’s probably just Google’s style then, not to give in to the pressure and add lenses, but instead focus on the overall quality of camera software and hardware. After all, Google has had a history of doing so with the previous generations of the Pixel, and by doing so it has earned a name for itself in the mobile photography department. Besides, a dual-lens camera setup isn’t what guarantees the best photos anyway. Still, simple numbers like one and two could become a deal-breaker for some buyers.

 

 

We’ve learnt quite a lot about the upcoming Pixel phones already. We know that the Pixel 3 XL will don a wide notch on the top of its display while the smaller Pixel 3 will shun the notch club altogether. Both phones might feature 3D face detection. Both phones are expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset and  have 4GB of RAM with up to 128GB of non-expandable internal storage.

The rumour mill is full of hypotheses like: the Pixel 3 XL could support wireless charging because it’s been spotted with a glass back. Wireless charging could make a return even though Google decided to ditch the feature after Nexus 6 so it could promote USB Type-C. Another rumour in the mill is that the Pixel phones may retain their squeezable Active Edge feature. They’re both expected to launch with Android P running out-of-the-box sometime in October. But going by the rate at which information is leaking right now we’re not sure if Google will have much to leave to our imagination by then.
