There is still some time before Google brings its next generation Pixel phones. This year, Google will launch the successor to the last year’s Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. The upcoming Pixel phones could be the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 5 XL. Google is yet to officially talk about the next generation Pixel phones, but a new leak now brings out the first look at the Pixel 5 XL. It looks unique and very different from the Pixel 4 XL.
The Pixel 4 XL comes with a square rear camera module. A YouTube channel that goes by the name Front Page Tech has shared a new video showing the prototype design of the upcoming Pixel device aka Pixel 5 XL. Given the video shows a prototype design we would suggest you take this with a pinch of salt as this may not be the final design of the Pixel 5 XL. Most of us know that smartphone manufacturers including Google usually make several prototype devices before finalizing the design of the phone.
Google is seemingly trying out different designs for Pixel 5 XL. The Front Page Tech YouTube channel shared a video where the alleged Pixel 5 XL appears with a U shaped camera module on the back. This one is most unique design among the three. It looks very different from the current-generation Pixel 4 series of phones. On the other hand, the same leak reveals that there are two more prototype designs of the Pixel 5 XL that show Pixel 4 like square camera setup.
The prototype reveals that the Google Pixel 5 XL will sport a textured finish on both frames and the rear glass. The device appears with a triple camera setup housed in a U-shaped module. This is something new and haven’t been seen on any smartphones yet. Out of the three image sensors one is expected to be an ultrawide lens. Now that should be a great news for the Pixel lovers as the Pixel 4 XL missed this camera feature.
Notably, the prototype just shows the back of alleged Pixel 5 XL. No details of the front design have been revealed. It is said that for the Pixel 5 series as well Google will opt for it’s Motion Sense technology. Does this mean the Pixel 5 series will also not come to India? Well, that only time will say.
To recall, Google Pixel 4 series didn’t launch in India as the Motion Sense technology was one of the key features of the Pixel phones and the company didn’t want to bring the devices without this feature.
