We now have some more information on the specifications of the camera after a lengthy chain of Pixel 3 (and 3 XL) leaks. A leaker also revealed some interesting information about how the Pixel 3 devices use live wallpapers.
According to a tipper, Ishan Aggarwal, the Pixel 3 XL will have dual cameras at the front. know, but Agarwal also revealed the specifications of the two sensors. Both will have an 8-megapixel resolution.
Auto-Focus for a better selfie
The Pixel phones are known for their stunning photography. Part of that is due to Google’s image processing algorithms, backed by the Pixel Visual Core chipset. Google will add an autofocus sensor to the front to improve the experience. While this may not be a first in the industry, it is only available for Samsung flagships and higher than the Galaxy S8.
The aperture for the primary selfie sensor will be f/1.8, while the aperture for the second sensor will have a wide-angle fixed focal one with an aperture of f/2.2. These properties should be applicable to the Pixel 3 as well as the Pixel 3 XL. However, this proves our earlier speculation wrong about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL’s dual aperture mode, as revealed in the leak of the smartphone earlier this month.
The rear single camera will be 12.2-megapixels in resolution, which is the same as last . The camera can also capture 4K videos, but the frame rate is limited to 30 frames per second, so there will be no upgrades.
Live Living Wallpapers
Agarwal shared information about the dual front cameras on the Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 XL. He also shared interesting information about the preloaded wallpapers on the Pixel 3. These wallpapers not only respond to activity but also interact with interactions. They are far ahead of the animated beach wallpaper that Google introduced last year.
Some wallpapers can be animated when music is playing, while others create ripple or burst effects when there is a new notification or when the phone has been unlocked. Some wallpapers change colors with the passage of time, while others tilt and turn when you change the orientation.
These wallpapers can be divided into two categories: “Come Alive” and “Living Universe”, so that you can find the right one for your personal style.
Additional Hands-On Photos
We are seeing more images of the Pixel 3 XL being used, as it has been leaked more than its smaller sibling. The leak also shows the same notch as the back and frosted glass, which is something we knew already because the Pixel 3 XL supports Wireless Charging.
The Simply White model is also shown with a mint-colored power button. Meanwhile, the volume rocker is the exact same color as the smartphone’s body. In some earlier leaks, this was also revealed.
