The Pixel 3 phones are launching soon, but as always with Google-branded phones, they have no secrets when Googlers explains their features on the stage. We have seen a wide range of leaks so far that everyone says the same. Pixel 3 XL will be the more exciting phone for the two, and it will be an iPhone X clone with a big notch at the top of the screen.
We also know that Google is using cameras with lens batteries for both phones for a year. It may be the worst with the upcoming phones, given that most flagship features two-lens cameras at the back of this year, with Huawei's top phone packing a triple camera. At the same time, the first collection of camera samples has leaked and the pictures look quite impressive.
Google has already proven that it can provide users with a great camera experience, with Pixel 2 and Pixel receiving top scores in camera reviews. And it's likely that Pixel 3 also wants a great camera, no matter how many lenses the rear camera has.
While waiting for professionals to review Google's new phones and tell us about Google's decision to stay away from two cameras was ignorant or brilliant, you can already check out a bunch of photos taken with Pixel 3 XL. These camera samples were posted on Instagram by a London based Russian Pixel 3 user, so they are obviously submerged. But they still look good as you see for yourself.
We have a lot of pictures taken in a variety of settings to demo the camera's capabilities and I want to include some of them below so that you can be the referee.
At first glance, the conclusion seems to be that a single camera might be enough to provide many great pictures. But again, this is not a professional review of the camera, so we just look at the samples currently. Features like portrait mode, zoom, low-light photography and video quality will be judged much better by the pros who want to put the phone through their steps.
That said, it would be interesting to see if Google brings up DxOMark scores for Pixel 3 in the upcoming event. It has done it before. But DxOMark's mobile ranking currently has Huawei P20 Pro at the top, and we're not sure Google can beat the triple camera I just mentioned.
