At the end of last year, after a wave of high-end devices with two cameras behind him that flooded the phone scene, Google came to show that it is not necessary to incorporate two different sensors to make the best photographs . And when it seemed that in 2018 everything was going to change, and Google finally gave his arm to twist to include a dual sensor in your next, the latest rumors now tell us just the opposite
Ice Universe , a recognized leaker of Chinese origin that in the past has already revealed information about new devices with some advance, has published on Twitter an image in which the alleged Google Pixel 3 in its XL version, with a rear photographic system formed by a single camera.
Google would trust the software again: the Pixel 3 would have a camera
It is not the first time that a leak or rumor of the third generation Google Pixel unveils Google’s plans for photography . With the appearance of his first real photographs, we saw how one of the first prototypes had a photographic system led by a single sensor on its back, following the wake of the previous generations of Pixel devices.
Now, the render that shows us Ice Universe in your Twitter account, presumably extracted from a sleeve maker, shows the same design that we have already seen in previous leaks , with a single camera on the back of the phone.
Pixel 3XL is still a single camera

Google knows that, thanks to its software based on artificial intelligence, is able to achieve photographic results that exceed those of those phones with two or more cameras . However, Google is not going to join the trend of incorporating several sensors, implies that the Pixel 3 XL will not have some of the advantages provided by this type of photographic systems, such as optical zoom or wide angle -The portrait mode has long since ceased to be an advantage of mobile phones with two cameras-. Either way, maybe, and not extra sensors. I’m afraid that time will give us the answer.
