Unfortunately, The Google Pixel 3 XL Will Feature A Single Rear Camera As Per New Leaked Image
With the introduction of the Huawei P20 Pro, the entire smartphone industry has something to look forward to. The iPhone 7 Plus had an impact on the market with its dual-lens camera setup at the back. The industry came shaping towards it. However, Google was not the one to adopt it because it had something else in mind. While we were previously expecting the Google Pixel 3 XL to feature a dual-lens camera at the back as well, it seems like we have to hold back our wishes for the time being.
Sadly, the new leaked image for the Google Pixel 3 XL shows no signs of plurality in the camera department. It’s not that the camera on the current Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is a slouch by any means, it is more than capable of competing against the giants like the iPhone X and the Galaxy Note 8. However, with the secondary rear camera in place, we can anticipate what wonders could the Pixel 3 do.
Google Pixel 3 XL To Feature A Single Lens Camera At The Back, Sad!
For what we can speculate for the time being is that the next Pixel handset could be a powerhouse in terms of computing in the camera department. As per the latest image leak, we can see that the Google Pixel 3 will also not feature an in-display fingerprint recognition technology as well.
The image was shared by the leaker Ice Universe and shows that there will only be a single lens camera at the back of the Google Pixel 3 XL and it will also add a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

At the unveiling of the Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL, the devices were pretty capable of providing the bokeh effect for portrait shots only using the single rear camera. It was thought that the secondary camera is necessary for the portrait shots but Google proved otherwise.
Possibly, the single rear lens on the Google Pixel 3 XL will be still capable of providing all the necessary features which are why the company is not adding the second lens. However, as can be seen in the image, the device will feature dual lens camera on the front which will and should have dedicated features attached to it.
At this point in time, while the news is pretty disappointing, its still young to draw any final conclusions. There is still a fair amount of time remaining for the devices to be unveiled and the end result could always differ.
